The Game of Thrones cast was spotted pottering around Belfast yesterday... It's the Dredge

Dirt! Get your celebrity DIRT!

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt from the top to the very bottom. 

Looks like filming is about to begin for Game of Thrones season eight – all the cast is currently in or on the way to Belfast. 


Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime), Maisie Williams (Arya) and Sophie Turner (Sansa) were all spotted around the city, though they’ve been instructed not to take selfies with fans.

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys) happily autographed a napkin for a fan in Starbucks, however:

She was seen popping to the shops with Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and John Bradley (Samwell Tarly) – it was probably a bit easier to recognise her now she’s actually dyed her hair Dany platinum:

The cast is believed to be in Belfast early for table reads and rehearsals before filming starts in a few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled if you’re about. (Buzzfeed)

Lindsay Lohan has bizarrely defended Harvey Weinstein on her Instagram.

In a now-deleted video, the actress said she felt ‘bad’ for the producer, who has been accused of multiple accounts of rape and sexual assault:

Hi, I’m in Dubai. I feel very bad for Harvey Weinstein right now. I don’t think it’s right what’s going on. I think Georgina [Chapman, Weinstein's estranged wife] needs to take a stand and be there for her husband, and he’s never harmed me or done anything wrong to me. We’ve done several movies together, and so I think everyone needs to stop.

Oh well in that case, Lindsay. *eyeroll* (Metro)

Lovely evening @globalgiftfoundation with the one and only @voguewilliams.. x

Spencer Matthews says he once had to hide from the late Lybian leader Colonel Gaddafi’s son after accidentally insulting him.

Vogue Williams’ bf is currently taking part in the highly entertaining Celebrity Hunted on Channel 4 – and when asked if he’d ever had to go on the run before, he said:

I managed to insult Colonel Gaddafi’s son in the Caribbean once. He was really rude to me, and was chasing me, so I ran and hid from him under a bed. It was like a scene from Taken. The following day I shaved my head and ended up meeting him at a party – he didn’t even recognise me.

Quite the story, Spencer. (Mirror)

And the rest of the day’s celebrity dirt…

  • Terry Crews has spoken out about being groped by a ‘high level Hollywood executive’. (
  • Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen reportedly split up over him flirting with Emma Roberts. (ONTD)
  • Game of Thrones filming will shut down so they can all go to Kit Harington and Rose Leslie’s wedding. Bless. (Buzzfeed)
  • Eminem has reappeared to slag off Trump in a freestyle rap. (Rolling Stone)
