Jedward have become embroiled in a Twitter spat with Jim Corr, after they slammed his "idiotic behaviour" in attending an anti-mask and anti-lockdown protest in Dublin.

The twins accused Corr of leaving the country "breathless" from COVID-19, referring to The Corrs' hit single of the same name, and called him "the best background band member in the history of Irish music."

Corr responded by calling Jedward "Ireland's answer to Millie Vanillie" and told them to "grow a brain"
between them.

Laura Byrne and Martin 'Beanz' Warde joined us to discuss this and more of the stories making the news this week, including the problems arising from school drop-offs.
