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

#MAN BAND It’s not Ronan Keating or Nicky Byrne or even Mickey Joe Harte helping Louis Walsh with his new boyband, it’s none other than broadcasting legend Aonghus McAnally!

If you’re a child of the eighties you might remember McAnally like this…

Presenting Anything Goes with make and do guru Mary Fitzgerald

Psst if you want to meet Aonghus (and who doesn’t?) there are more auditions in the Button Factory in Dublin today.

She’s said to be “heartbroken” over the split, although they’re still living together in the same house. (Perez Hilton)

These kids. We can’t keep up.
