    A professional Duchess of Cambridge lookalike has slammed the royal for dressing “too boring” for her age – and admits that she fancies Prince Harry more than William. Jodie Bredo, 26, has been a Kate lookalike for six years and wishes Kate would change her hair, maybe to a fashionable bob.

  • Miley Cyrus' armpits stole the spotlight at Joan Jett's Hall of Fame induction

    It was meant to be Joan Jett’s night when she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the weekend – but it all became about Miley Cyrus and her armpit hair instead. The 22-year-old singer paid tribute to the rock legend at the 30th annual Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio, by singing Crimson And Clover with her on stage and recounting her fondest memories of the 56-year-old legend in a heartfelt speech. But, in true Miley form, she decided to take her support one step further by exposing her breasts to reveal heart-shaped pink pasties emblazoned with a letter J on each side. She posted a snap on Instagram of the daring outfit with the caption “Joan’s Cheerleader”, but it was her noticeably unshaven armpits that got social media talking. q

  • Loyal Grealish staying in the green zone

    As Jack Grealish awoke at his family home in Solihull yesterday morning, he was oblivious to the conversation progressing from the topic of his dazzling display at Wembley on Sunday onto which country he’ll represent at senior level. The 19-year-old remains Ireland’s player to lose. England are, and always have been, on the prowl to secure the allegiance of a player born and raised in Birmingham. For any doubters of Grealish’s top-level capabilities – including Ireland manager Martin O’Neill – Sunday’s display demonstrates that age is merely a number.

  • Joe Brolly: Nothing but a commercial entity

    MY old Derry team mate, Eamonn Burns, tells a great yarn about a match being called off. Burns was to bring Paul Hickson and Mickey Boyle to the game. Boyle came out to the car and told him he’d just got a phone call to say the game was off. Say nothing.” They called for Hickson, who was none the wiser, and they chatted about the big game as normal.

  • He’s alive! Google Doodle celebrates Loch Ness Monster photo

    Thanks to a grainy, black and white photograph taken by Colonel Robert Wilson back in 1934, we’ve had to endure bizarre rumour after bizarre rumour about a dinosaur living in a lake in Scotland. The Daily Mail published the picture all those years ago, long before its sidepanel of snaps populated its website. Wilson eventually discredited the picture, calling it a “surgeon’s photograph”. As Time explains, more than 20 years ago the then 93-year-old Christian Spurling confessed that he had built the neck and attached it to a toy submarine.

    The folks over a Paddy Power’s Facebook page sure do, and decided put together a little video of one incident over the weekend. Sorry Liverpool fans, but they chose Dejan Lovren’s shot into Row Z as their subject. Probably a bit harsh to pick on Lovren, he was far from the only poor player in a Liverpool shirt yesterday, but it’s very funny. q
  • €4bn Rural Development Programme approved by EU

    The European Commission has issued Ireland with a letter of comfort in relation to the Rural Development Programme, which means a number of schemes can now open. The news was confirmed today by Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney. “The receipt of the letter of comfort is the culmination of an intense period of consultation between officials in my Department and the EU Commission in relation to the content of our RDP," he said. Formal adoption of RDPs in Europe will be delayed until after the Multi-Annual Financial Framework is amended at EU level, so the EU Commission agreed to issue letters of comfort to allow countries to roll of funding. q
  • The strike by bus workers: the questions and answers

    The likelihood is that all Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann services nationwide will come to a halt on 7 days in May. On average Dublin Bus carries 410,000 passengers on a Friday and approximately 253,000 on a Saturday, while Bus Éireann has estimated the industrial action could affect 40,000-50,000 of its passengers. Bus Éireann said 843,000 bus journeys would be hit over the seven days. The planned strike action at Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann centres on opposition by unions at the companies to moves by the National Transport Authority to put out to tender 10 per cent of routes currently operated by the State-owned transport firms.
