Simon Cowell gives Kian Egan's telly career a massive thumbs UP... it's The Dredge

Anyone got a sweeping brush? SO MUCH DIRT.

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

Simon Cowell has given Kian Egan the thumbs up to host a chat show. Phew. The singer, who recently launched a solo career, is setting his sights on the small screen after brief slots on ITV’s Daybreak and This Morning.

Me with Simon Cowell and Nigel Harman for my interview for itv this morning which will air on Friday morning #topman #simoncowell #kiansdebutalbum kianegan kianegan

Kian Egan, the breakout member of Westlife, who’d have thought it?

The King of the Jungle recently interviewed the high-waisted one, and said he gave him the seal of approval afterwards. (

Kiddo, I can see the TV career on the horizon. That was a great interview, you were very good.

Then he gave him a pat on the head, we’d say.


Kian also commented on band mate Shane Filan’s financial problems, saying:

It’s been a very tough journey for him and his family with everything that has happened. I’m delighted he is getting back on track now and doing what he loves to do and what he should be doing, which is being on stage with a microphone in his hand singing, because he has such an amazing voice.

Looks like it’s all going well so.

Tonight was ridiculous Glasgow !!! What a concert !!!! shanefilanofficial shanefilanofficial

Rihanna and Drake got up close and personal during a performance of their duet Take Care yesterday. Are you guys on? Off? Do we care? Of course we do. Last thing we remember, Rihanna was slagging him and his mates at the MTV VMAs, NOW THEY HERE.

Paris Night 2. Check the Internet. #Wylat? Movies every night! Ri da baddest: jamiliooo jamiliooo

RiRi joined Drizzy (we’re sorry, these people actually call themselves that) during his gig in Paris last night. The pair were also spotted on Monday having an ‘intimate dinner’ together, which we assume means Rihanna was sitting on his lap while they sucked on some pasta. (MTV)


Jaysus lads, save some of it for later.

Is there something bad? #rihanna #drake #paris rihannanavycolombia rihannanavycolombia

Those of you who watch a lot of American TV will be mad jealous of this group of girlos. Kathy Griffin literally knows everyone so got a bunch together for ‘Gurrls night!’ that we more than slightly want to go to. The comedian posted the photo to Twitter, including Whitney Cummins, Aubrey Plaza, Constance Zimmer, Joy Bryant, Elisha Cuthbert, Lizzy Caplan and Sia, who, admittedly, is the odd one out but is all the better for it.

Can we come next time? We’ll be gas, we swear.

Are Katy Perry and John Mayer on? Are they off? According to E! Online, a mysterious source has claimed that the pair have split.

BUT. According to the Mirror, the duo are set to marry this summer. We need ANSWERS here. Perhaps it’s just Facebook complicated.

Whose broad stripes & bright stars?! katyperry katyperry

And the rest of the day’s dirt…

  • BBC DJ Nick Grimshaw stupidly made a joke about a member of One Direction and now he’s public enemy number one. Applause. (
  • Beyonce released a new music video for Partition and it’s seriously NSFW (YouTube)
  • North West is getting cuter, not a drill. (Daily Mail)
  • Lena Dunham found out that her boyfriend went out with Scarlett Johansson through a BLOG. Smack in the face x2 (Digital Spy)
  • Someone bought tickets to a Justin Timberlake concert just to give him the finger, and gets embarrassingly called out on it.
