Ed Sheeran's Phoenix Park gigs could be causing Garthgate round two... It's the Dredge

DEAR GOD NO. All the rest of the day’s celebrity dirt, in here.

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

Garthgate round two? Please say no. Ed Sheeran’s 2018 Dublin gigs could end up moving venues after a number of objections were raised by locals.

Ed is due to play three nights in Phoenix Park next May, but members of Fingal County Council say local residents were not consulted before the gig licence was granted.

The concerts were originally set to take place near the Ashtown Gate entrance, but Fianna Fáil councillor Howard Mahoney says there are more suitable areas within the park:

It’s a huge inconvenience for residents. We could have what happened at Croke Park for Garth Brooks. If they have it in a more central location, for example the Wellington monument or near the Papal Cross, it will be at least controllable.

Oh dear. (

Is Kourtney Kardashian pregnant too? Kris, take a day off. 

Rumours are flying that the eldest Kardashian is expecting a child with her boyfriend of one year, Younes Bendjima. You may recall that her sisters Kim, Kylie, and Khloe are all reportedly pregnant right now, and due early next year.

Kourtney already has three children, Penelope, Mason and Reign, with her no good baby daddy Scott Disick (who is now dating the 19-year-old Sofia Richie).

US gossip mag Life & Style quotes a source who said Kourtney is delighted with the news, and always wanted a “large family” for her kids. We can’t wait to see how this plays out.

Mark Ruffalo, you adorable featherhead. The actor broadcast the Thor: Ragnarok premiere live over Instagram last night after he forgot to turn off his phone. Doh!

Mark live-streamed from the red carpet earlier in the evening, then put his phone in his pocket without switching off – and accidentally allowed fans listen to the first ten minutes of the film.

Someone managed to screengrab his face when he realised what he had done:

Stop. Despite these movies usually being shrouded in secrecy, it seems that he’s not in any hot water over it:
