maracas at the ready. Celebrity chef Catherine Fulvio is partnering up with lawyer to the stars Gerald Kean for charity dance-off 'Strictly Against Breast Cancer'.

Despite spending hours rehearsing, Catherine is doubtful they will be able to cha-cha their way to the top of the leader board.

"I think people will be asking for their money back," she confessed.

"Gerald is a better dancer than I am. I wouldn't say he has snake hips but he's steady on his feet and very, very enthusiastic."

Sounds like Lisa Murphy is one lucky lady.

Oh dear. You really have to feel for the poor fellows working in Labour's press office. Having noticed that the party's official Facebook page had only 10,000 'likes', one opportunistic rogue set up a rival page entitled 'I Bet this Brick Can Get More Likes Than The Labour Party', complete with a profile picture of a bright red brick.

Since it sprung to life last Thursday, The Brick's page has notched up over 12,000 'likes' proudly boasting: "How do you feel about that Joan?"

Things could be worse, just look at Fine Gael, who have only mustered up 9,070 Facebook fans.

Michelin-starred chef Marco Pierre White was one of several esteemed guests to appear in the inaugural 'Lovin Dublin' show at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre this week.

Before he took to the stage, Marco was asked to pose for the cameras on the red carpet and struck his trademark sullen pose; arms folded, staring down the lens of the camera.

"How's about a big cheesy smile?" a hapless paparazzo ventured.

"No," Marco replied curtly. "I don't do smiles. Cheesy or otherwise."

Mancunian musician Morrissey will take to the stage of Dublin's 3 Arena next week.

His musical accolades to one side, Morrissey is most proud of his signature hairdo and once mused: "I do maintain that if your hair is wrong, your entire life is wrong."

Broadcaster Joe Duffy (pictured) was brought down to earth with a bump last week when attending the theatre.

Having made small talk with a group of journalists, Joe was about to head inside the doors when one hack turned and said; "I've been meaning to ask you Joe, would you ever consider assisted suicide?"

Joe looked stunned before replying: "Ah Jaysus. Do I look that bad? "I'd like to think I have a long time left in me yet."
