The Insider

CONGRATULATIONS to actress Tara Leniston, who's due baby number two next year.

<P>Doing her part for the baby boom, the blonde beauty has confirmed that she's expecting a little brother or sister for son Dylan (4) with partner Andrew Fowler.</P>

<P>The London-based star has revealed that she is 16 weeks gone and has been flying it so far, thankfully suffering from none of the morning sickness that has knocked the Duchess of Cambridge for six.</P>

<P>THE music of everyone's favourite country and western singer will be brought to life next month.</P>

<P>The new musical from singer Dolly Parton will be given a fresh lease of life in a production of 9 to 5 at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre.</P>

<P>Based on the hit movie of the same name, it centres on three office workers who turn the tables on their sexist boss, and naturally features the song which earned Parton an Oscar nomination and four Grammy Award nominations.</P>

<P>Running from January 21-26, it will also include 18 original numbers from the star. Taking to the stage will be Natalie Casey, Bonnie Langford, Amy Lennox and Jackie Clune.</P>

<P>But while Dolly can claim to be a musical legend, geography may not be her strong point, judging by her quote in the press release. She said she's "so excited that the musical is coming to the UK." Oops!</P>

<P>FANS of Grammy Award-winner Ne-Yo take note. The performer (pictured) has just confirmed he'll be rocking out at the Wright Venue in Swords on Friday January 11.</P>

<P>He'll be belting out some of his best-known hits at the bash, including Closer, Let Me Love You and his brand new single, Burning Up.</P>

<P>Meanwhile, tickets to see The Boss in action during his Irish concerts will go on sale tomorrow morning.</P>

<P>International chart-topper Bruce Springsteen will be coming back for another stint in Ireland along with his E Street Band as he performs three unique concerts around the country.</P>

<P>He'll kick off his Wrecking Ball tour at Thomond Park in Limerick on July 16 before hitting Cork on July 18 and Belfast's Kings Hall Arena on July 20.</P>

<P>The album, of the same title, was released earlier this year and became his tenth No 1 in the US and here.</P>

<P>IT WILL be collars up and Dubes at the ready this evening for the launch of new exhibition The Ort of Ross O'Carroll Kelly. Described as a celebration of ten years of Ross illustrations by the artist Alan Clarke, the southside posse will be out in force to show their support for the show.</P>

<P>Paul Howard will be on hand at the bash in the Powerscourt Townhouse centre to do a reading from one of his many books, while Alan will be showing off his talents with some live illustrations.</P>

<P>The exhibition, which is sponsored by footwear company Dubarry, is free to the public and will run until December 24.</P>
