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

#THAT’S WHAT MAKES YOU ELECTABLE When Niall ‘Mullingar Massive’ Horan was home last month for his brother’s wedding, he also did some palling around with Longford-Westmeath TD Willie Penrose, who calls him a “good young friend of mine”.

The Irish Sun reports today that Horan has canvassed for Penrose in the past, and that Niall’s Da is a member of the Labour Party.

Digging around in some old Oireachtas debates we note that in 2010 Penrose said that Niall Horan was the “only positive” for Mullingar and that…

There is no direction to Mullingar from anybody.

See what he did there? “NO direction”. Niall is in ONE Direction. Nice work Willie.

Niall’s people have declined to comment on his political leanings, but we already know that Harry Styles is a Labour man. (NME)

#EASILY IMPRESSED Speaking of Harry Styles… really?

Not the last scenes of The Shawshank Redemption? Or the tearjerking ending to ET?

Grease? With the flying car?

Also, we’re fairly sure if Harry Styles tweeted about doing a particularly smelly fart it would still get 50,000 retweets.
