People are using Nathan Carter's photo on Tinder, but he doesn't mind if 'it helps the lads along'... it's The Dredge

How considerate. Here’s all the day’s celebrity dirt.

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

Country singer Nathan Carter is responsible for a lot of things. Getting Wagon Wheel stuck in your head and forcing you to consider becoming a country music fan, to name but a few.

It turns out that he might be inadvertently responsible for ensuring some lads gets the ride as well.

The singer told the Irish Mirror that there are some chancers using his name and photo on Tinder.

No I’m not on Tinder but apparently people are using my pictures and name on it. It’s a bit weird.

But Nathan’s not here to judge.

It’s a bit strange but if it helps the lads along, fair play.

That’s the spirit. (Irish Mirror)

Amanda Brunker was apparently pulled from yesterday’s edition of RTÉ’s Today Show at short notice following a dispute with fellow panelist Neil Prendeville. 

The pair appeared on the show last week where they discussed the Daily Mail’s controversial ‘legs-it’ headline about Theresa May and Nicola Sturgeon. Prendeville reportedly remarked that Nicola had “the best pair”.

In a column for the Herald, Brunker accused Neil of talking her down and being a “mansplain expert”.

The Irish Independent now reports that Brunker was pulled from yesterday’s show at short notice and told that she wasn’t needed.

RTÉ declined to comment on the matter. Curious. (The Irish Independent)

Yesterday was Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s 9th wedding anniversary. To commemorate the milestone, Beyoncé published a video featuring never before seen footage from the couple’s relationship. It was quite adorable.

She also released a song called Die With You – a Tidal exclusive, no less – for the day that was in it.
