EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.
#WHAT THE WHAT: Celebrity Big Brother kicked off last night in the UK, and a host of largely recognisable names (Screech from Saved By The Bell! Abz from 5ive!) entered the house to rapturous applause. (Mirror)

The dentist and botox doctor quit Dublin Wives in April because she said she was sick of ‘carrying’ her co-stars, but was obviously keen to carry on working in television.
Given the fact that many Irish people wouldn’t recognise her name, you can’t help but wonder how people in the UK felt as she entered the house. In fact, you can actually see the WTF faces on the people in the crowd in the above photo.
Having said that, there’s no doubt that she’ll be entertaining. She is certainly a, well, a dynamic person.
If you have a bit of time we recommend giving this a watch to see what you can expect.
#CAPED CRUSADER: Ben Affleck has been announced as the next Batman! (Gossip Cop)
Ben will portray the Caped Crusader against Henry Cavill‘s Superman in the film, which will see the two superheroes join forces for the first time on the big screen.
Director Zack Snyder said:
He has the acting chops to create a layered portrayal of a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter, but retain the charm that the world sees in billionaire Bruce Wayne. I can’t wait to work with him.
Exciting times for Batman fans!
#LOVE LOCKDOWN: Kanye West recorded an interview for Kris Jenner‘s television show earlier this week, and before it airs today they’ve released a clip of him talking about his love for Kim. (Mirror)
It’s actually really lovely. He talks about the fact that people find it strange that he chooses to be with someone who attracts a lot of attention when he hates the paparazzi, but says that his love for her is more important than any of that.
