And other showbiz!

Liam Gallagher has kind of apologised for comments he made during a 'drunken' rant aimed at Freddie Mercury.

People aren’t happy that he's turned his sorry statement into a joke, and made out that it's Freddie's fans' fault for getting offended.

I’m going to replace the word Liam actually used with the word “puppy”.

So – he called Freddy a goofy puppy and when people got offended, he said it’s not a word that should cause offence – sure wasn’t he himself called a good-looking puppy only the day before and took no offence.

 

He’s a massive troll!

There is a new RTE drama being shot and it’s being likened to Love/Hate. Taken Down investigates the violent death of a young Nigerian immigrant found close to a Direct Provision Centre. It’s a twilight world of the new Ireland where slum landlords and criminals prey on the vulnerable. It’s being filmed all over Dublin over the next 10 weeks.
