Watch: Davy Fitzgerald sings 'That's Amore' on new TV3 'Living with Lucy' series

Lucy Kennedy links up with the Wexford hurling manager for a ‘weekend of sporting shananigans.’

THIS SHOULD BE one worth tuning in for.

In the first of a new series of ‘Living with Lucy’ on TV3, presenter Lucy Kennedy’s first guest is current Wexford senior hurling manager and Clare native Davy Fitzgerald.

And in a teaser released by the station, the Sixmilebridge man shows that he can hold a note as he bashes out the famous Dean Martin classic ‘That’s Amore.’

Kennedy visits a host of new celebrities in the new series, including Katie Hopkins, Daniella Westbrook and Fitzgerald.

It’s Davy Fitz first up tomorrow night from 10pm on TV3 and the show begins with Kennedy first meeting Fitzgerald in Simxilebridge, where he’s living with his partner, Sharon, and his son, Colm.

Fitzgerald’s pad is described as a ‘palatial mansion complete with his man cave and juke box!’

Kennedy arrives at a time when Fitzgerald is serving an eight-week touchline ban following an altercation with Tipperary’s Jason Forde during the Allianz Hurling League semi-final in April.

Fitzgerald is confined to the stands for Wexford’s Leinster championship opener against Laois at O’Moore Park in May, and Kennedy is there to capture how the manager copes.

Fitzgerald tells Kennedy about the negative elements attached to being a high-profile name in Irish sport, lifting the lid on the abuse he and his team received from faceless, online bullies and the personal nature of it.

The episode also shows Fitzgerald turning up a birthday party with a cake and team jersey for one his young fans, Orla, who is in a wheelchair.

You can check out the full show from 10pm tomorrow evening on TV3.
