[picapp align=”none” wrap=”false” link=”term=russell+brand+jonathan+ross&iid=9141986″ src=”″ width=”234″ height=”416″ /]

Some AMAZING news for all you Russell Brand fans this rainy Friday…he’s getting a new radio show!! Don’t know about you, but Russell’s old podcasts used to get me through my bus journeys in the morning and I was gutted when they came to an abrupt end (after the OTT ‘Sachsgate’ scandal) so this has cheered me up no end!

Russell’s new show will air on TalkSport on Saturday evenings for around 20 weeks, starting on the 9th of October (next week!). The show will also feature regular contributions from Brand’s pals Noel Gallagher and partner in crime Jonathan Ross. We can’t wait!!!!

In other Russell news, he posted a message on Twitter today confirming that he is going to be on Newsnight with Paxman….not sure exactly why, but we’ll be watching for sure!

Oh and finally – Booky Wook 2 is out now ( seem to have the best deal at the mo) and we’re off to see the accompanying tour on Monday night in Edinburgh – wahey!


Big Brother Couple Get Their Own Show

Good news for ‘Triple J’ fans (excuse me while I vom in my mouth) – Channel 5 are filming a fly on the wall documentary following the pair and their post-Big Brother life together – aw bless….

The one off special (praise the lord!) of the John James and Josie show will air on Monday the 11th of October, and will mostly consist of muffled professions of “love” from a manky duvet (we imagine anyway).

Set the Sky Plus now!!!

You’ll also be happy to hear that the pair are available for PA bookings through their agency Industry Music – just in case you want to hire them to open your local coffee morning or something.

Myleene Klass: “I’m pregnant!”

Myleene Klass has today announced that she is pregnant with her second child.  The singer turned TV presenter/M&S model already has a daughter (Ava, born 2007) with her husband Graham Quinn.

Big congratulations to Myleene and Graham!

Kelly Osborne brands Dannii Minogue “the devil”

Kelly Osborne has hit back at Dannii Minogue after extracts from her new autobiography Dannii: My Story (out now…) were published this weekend, painting a not so flattering image of her mother Sharon.

Kelly ranted: “The best thing to happen to Dannii’s career was that my mother hated her she needs to shut her mouth and concenterate on motherhood.  I will be the first one to admit that my mother did not play her cards right when came to Dannii but trust me when i say Dannii is the devil.  Dannii you are so lucky that i respect Simon enough to not tell the truth about what really happened.  wa wa wa you poor middle aged victum.”

I guess you can’t blame Kelly for sticking up for her mother, but we’re definitely Team Minogue – the vile Sharon O is high up there on our “people we’d most hate to be stuck in a lift with”….

Here’s the story:

“On The X Factor, each judge is given one of four categories to mentor: boys, girls, groups or over-25s. I was overjoyed when I got the boys. On the day of the first live show, when the finalists vie for the public vote, things didn’t get off to a good start. About two hours before we went on air, Sharon’s assistant breezed into my dressing room and said: ‘Sharon wants to see you in her room. Could you pop along now?’

Lindsay Lohan Fails Drug Test

Hmmm, not so much…

[picapp align=”none” wrap=”false” link=”term=lindsay+lohan+drugs&iid=9388299″ src=”″ width=”234″ height=”329″ /]

Lindsay Lohan, who recently spent23 days in rehab after serving 13 days in jail for violating probation, has today admitted via Twitter that she has been taking drugs.

Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked, I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.  Substance abuse is a disease, which unfortunately doesn’t go away over night. I am working hard to overcome it and am taking positive steps forward every day. I am testing every single day and doing what I must do to prevent any mishaps in the future.  This was certainly a setback for me but I am taking responsibility for my actions and I’m prepared to face the consequences.  I am so thankful for the support of my fans, loved ones and immediate family, who understand that i am trying hard,  but also that I am a work in progress, just as anyone else. I am keeping my faith, and I am hopeful….Thank you all!!!

Looks like the rehab did its job then… all seriousness though, we do wish Lindsay the best of luck in getting through this, and hope that one day we get the old Lohan back (a la the Mean Girls days – she was f****ing awesome back then!).

Russell Brand Arrested at LA Airport

Russell Brand has been arrested following an incident at LA airport on Friday.  The comedian was on his way through security with his pop singer fiancee Katy Perry when some paps tried to stick a lens up Katy’s skirt.  A scuffle (love that word) then broke out when Brand shoved the pervy paps out the way, resulting in a citizens arrest being made and Russell was held until police arrived at the scene.

Katy Perry has commented on the incident on her Twitter page this morning:

“If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me. #standbyyourman #don’tfuckwiththeBrands”

Here at What’s The Dirt? we’re a big fan of both Russell* and Katy and think it’s quite sweet actually that he stood up for his woman like that – and having seen plenty examples of the US paparazzi crowds in action it’s no wonder he reacted the way he did – it’s quite frightening to watch!

Go Team Brand!

*in fact we’re going to see Russell’s Booky Wook 2 show in a few weeks time so please try to not get arrested again before then please….
