Mel B stormed off America's Got Talent after Simon Cowell cracked a joke about her marriage... it's the Dredge

Roll up, roll up! Get your celeb dirt.

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

America’s Got Talent has moved into their live quarter-finals this week, but the most dramatic moment of last night’s show was something that happened off the main stage. 

After a magician’s escape act hit a technical difficulty – Simon cracked a joke about Mel B’s wedding night (remember, she is going through a messy, messy divorce with Stephen Belafonte right now) and it all kicked off – from 4 min 30 seconds on:

It looked like she was joking at the start by throwing a drink, but Mel B eventually walked off stage.

She wasn’t expecting that:

Simon’s comment in full was:

Well, I’m kind of imagining this would be like Mel B’s wedding night – a lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.

Which got him a soaked shirt for his troubles:

Bit of a low blow, considering. (E!Online)

Laura Whitmore is currently in Edinburgh for the Fringe Festival, and last night she shared the first photo of her and her new boyfriend Iain Stirling.

Yes, yer man who did the voiceover on Love Island:

It was reported by The Sun last month that the pair had started seeing each other, but this appears to be the first time either have shared a picture with both of them in it.

Geordie Shore’s Gary “Gaz” Beadle revealed some massive news on Instagram last night – he and his girlfriend Emma McVey are going to have a baby.

And he’s apparently leaving Geordie Shore too.

Howay man.

A “source” told The Sun that the longest-standing member of the show won’t be coming back:

Gary is leaving Geordie Shore this year.
He’s taking fatherhood really seriously, being a dad is all he’s ever wanted and he wants to spend all his time with Emma and their baby. However, Geordie Shore bosses are desperately begging Gaz to stay as they can’t see a future for the show without him.
They have offered him the opportunity to make guest appearances in series 16 – who knows whether he will or not – but producers are frantically trying to keep him on the show somehow.

If true, goodbye Gaz and thanks for all the… mortal sessions.

And the rest of the day’s dirt…
