The Dredge: Ronan Keating has some advice for kids

We get our hands mucky with the best of the morning’s dirt…

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, the Daily Edge digs through the celebrity dirt to bring you the best of it. Here’s The Dredge…

Ireland’s own chiselled chirper Ronan Keating has some pro tips for children: don’t do what I do. “I did it wrong, yeah I f***ed up, it’s wrong, learn from my mistakes,” he advised youngsters around the world, before ordering them to find hope “whether it’s in a person or your dogs.”

He was most likely undergoing an intense period of contemplation after it emerged he’ll be touring the UK and Ireland with fellow boyband refugee Brian McFadden next year. (Irish Daily Mirror)

Meanwhile Ronan’s ex-wife – slim, blonde Yvonne Keating – has moved to distinguish herself from his slim, blonde new girlfriend Storm Uechtritz. She’s only gone and dyed her hair brown. All hope of a reunion is now off. (Evening Herald)


The Words

Very sexy: What Kate Middleton’s mother is, in the words of eccentric fashion gnome Karl Lagerfeld who said Carole Middleton was “sexier than the daughters”. It’s the latest in a series of blows for poor Kate, who “shouldn’t be sunbathing in the nude”, according to international sunbathing expert Donald Trump. AND she and Wills were forced into the ‘humiliating dance with the locals’ that is the staple of any royal tour. (Mail Online, Perez)

Tacky: What Drew Barrymore doesn’t want her new career as a maker of fine wines to be. Luckily the actress has taken “several trips” to the Italian vineyard where the wines – called simply “Barrymore” – are made, AND designed the label. “Wine is about tradition and family,” she said, adding: “I love wine.” (Mail Online)

Wonders: What marijuana has done for the music of Lady GaGa, according to Lady Gaga. The singer said puffing on fat, delicious doobies has “totally changed my life” and been a “totally spiritual experience”. She delivered these nuggets of wisdom while sparking up a plump one on stage in Amsterdam. (The Sun)
