Congratulations to my neighbour Amanda Lamb who has gone and put a ring on it with her cameraman boyfriend Sean McGuinness. The pair, who have a beautiful daughter called Willow Rose, got engaged on Friday. I couldn’t be happier for such a perfectly matched couple.
Ronan Keating is preparing for his next solo venture ahead of the Boyzone tour in Spring – he’s jetting off to LA to complete a new album with legend of music Burt Bacharach. He tells me: “2011 is going to be a very busy year – I’m in LA for 3 weeks doing a record with Burch Bacharach and then we have the Boyzone tour from February – but that’s just the way I like it. Life is good when you keep busy.” Good luck, Ro.
I hear the union between One Show host and Welsh rugby star Lee Byrne has come to an end. The pair had been dating since the summer on a casual basis and have finally decided to split with Alex deciding things just weren’t working out for anything more long term. I hear Lee’s already moved on and has been trying to bag Welsh newsreader Andrea Benfield for a date. Lee clearly likes an educated lady on his arm. Good for him.
London based rockers The Boxer Rebellion have been backed by Drew Barrymore to win an Oscar. The band have been shortlisted for an Oscar nomination for their track If You Run in Drew’s latest film Going the Distance. She handpicked the lads to star alongside her in the film after seeing them play live in New York earlier in the year. They’re now one of her firm favourites for an Oscar nod! Good luck!
