The auditions will take place in the Red Cow Moran Hotel, but it's not just Riverdance you'll be auditioning for, they're also looking for people to join Heartbeat of Home.

The open call will coincide with the World Irish Dance Championships for handiness sake, so it's certainly looking to be an exciting weekend.

Always dreamed of being a Spice Girl?  Well now you might actually have the chance. 

According to Life & Style magazine Emma Bunton, Geri Horner and Mel B could be holding auditions very soon to find replacements for former band mates Mel C and Victoria Beckham.

A source told the mag: “The girls are going to be making a formal announcement about tryouts for their spots in the next few weeks…Posh and Sporty can be replaced."

July will mark the 20th anniversary of the band's first single Wannabe and apparently Baby, Ginger and Scary Spice are mad to go on tour to mark the occasion.

And since Posh and Sporty are refusing to participate in the reunion, the remaining girls have decided they can do it without them.

There has long been speculation surrounding whether or not fashion designer Victoria would agree to a reunion, but until recently it was thought Mel C was a dead cert.

According to the source: “It wasn’t a surprise that Victoria would decline the tour, but the girls really hit the roof when Mel C ditched too.”

And earlier this month Melanie Chisholm hinted to The Sun that she would be up be up for a comeback.

She said: “I will always be a Spice Girl. It’s a wonderful part of my past – but it’s still very much my present.”

“You never know what’s going to happen. I'm not allowed to comment on that.”

We're disappointed to hear the whole gang won't be back to spice up our lives – but at least that means we've a better chance of becoming the new Spice Girls.



It was confirmed today that everyone's fave presenter, Dermot O Leary is making his way back to The X Factor this year – and now it's your chance to make it on to the show.

A lot of changes are expecting to drop this year, with the intimate room auditions making a comeback early-on in the series.

But any wannabe singers can meet the judges (which are yet to be confirmed) face-to-face next month at the Irish auditions.

Set to take place in Dublin's 3Arena on April 24, any aspiring performers will audition there in hopes of moving onto the next stage. You can apply to audition here.



If you fancy seeing yourself on the TV screen, then this might be your chance.

A new six-part Eastenders spin-off is coming to Ireland and they're looking for some home talent to join the cast.

The show will see popular characters Kat and Alfie Moon leaving Walford and heading to Ireland to start a new life. The drama will be focused around the South East of the country as they search for answers to their pretty difficult questions.

Speaking of their new mini-soap, Shane Richie said: “Both Jessie and I are absolutely thrilled to be given this amazing opportunity. To have a whole drama focused around Kat and Alfie is a huge honour for us both and we just can’t wait to start filming.”

Jessie added: “I have always loved working on EastEnders so when I heard of this new drama to take Kat and Alfie outside of Walford, I couldn’t believe our luck. To be exploring the next chapter for Kat as well as working alongside my best mate, Shane, is a dream come true and a huge compliment.”

Filming is set to take place in Dunmore East in May & June and open auditions will be held this coming weekend.

Redwater Productions are looking for men, women and children of all ages. The open castings will take place at the Waterford Harbour Sailing Club in Dunmore East this Friday April 1 between 4pm and 8pm and at Central Arts on The Quay in Waterford this Saturday from 12 noon until 7pm.


She's clearly lost a significant amount of weight in recent months – something Cheryl Fernandez Versini says is down to being busy, as well as the stress of losing her father-in-law.

And earlier today she once again showed she has no intention of swamping her figure in oversized clothing simply to appease her critics.

Arriving at The X Factor auditions in Manchester, the 32-year-old singer wore a tiny black crop-top from Mulger, which is priced at €475.

Her toned abs were on full display, as were her slim arms and waist. She opted to complete her outfit with over-sized black trousers. 

Cheryl had celebrated her wedding anniversary with husband Jean-Bernard yesterday; they married last year following a three-month relationship.

And just last week, the popstar said she was sick of nameless observers declaring that she's lost too much weight. 

Taking to Twitter, she said: "I am so sick and tired of it being ok to call somebody too thin or a ‘bag of bones’.

"I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake? What is the difference?

"You have no idea what I have been through. Just losing my father in law v recently and everything that comes with that. Not that I am or should justify myself to anyone."

She continued: "I’m so f***ing sick of people thinking it’s ok to be mean or body shame anyone. 

"And it’s woman on woman. Have some respect and maybe think there may be reasons why before opening your mouth please.

"I am just tired of the ignorance… At some point it’s just enough. Some people are naturally thin. My mother is all of 4’11 and six stone something. And is incredible healthy and happy."



One Direction’s security team are planning on hiring lookalikes of the band members!

Yes, you heard that right!

The Little Things singers are being followed by screaming fans everywhere they go on their epic Where We Are world tour, so their team want to hire decoys.

The boys’ bodyguards think having 1D lookalikes on hand would be great for distracting the fans, and think it’s the only way to keep the band safe and sound.

While the band already have a crazy amount of security around them but it seems things are getting out of hand as it was revealed yesterday that the lads had to flee from their hotel in Peru after fans tried to storm the building.

The boys are apparently really nervous about going out and only feel safe in their private jet.

There has been talk of lookalike auditions hitting towns around the UK and Ireland – which we might just pop by to… Eek!
