The Insider: Champers and some riveting conversation

Champers and some riveting conversation with former newsroom legend Anne Doyle – what more could you want of an evening?

The retired RTE star was joined by her long-time friend and charity ambassador Margaret Nelson at Ananda restaurant in Dundrum on Wednesday evening.

The pair were accompanied by a host of friends at the champagne reception for the Hope Charity fundraiser.

She is used to the designer shops and posh clubs of Chelsea, but reality TV star Binky Felstead had a whale of a time in Dublin.

The Made In Chelsea beauty was in the capital yesterday where she made a special appearance at the Residence Members Club on Stephen's Green. The petite brunette was on hand to launch Rimmel's new sun shimmer line.

Irish actor Andrew Scott will step into the limelight tonight when he makes an appearance on the Late Late Show.

The actor (right) who plays villain Moriarty in hit BBC drama Sherlock, will chat to host Ryan Tubridy about how the show has changed his life.

Hit singer James Vincent McMorrow will keep the audience entertained with his dulcet tones.

For nightclub revellers and music fans not on a dry January, there are plenty of quirky jam sessions taking place this weekend.

Alternative group Jambo will take to the stage tonight in the Workman's Club, followed by Dublin indie-rockers Kapitals tomorrow.

And the acts keep coming for those who love arty guitar riffs and ripped denim outfits. Electric outfit Son Lux aka Ryan Lott will try to get customers in a spin when he hits the club next Friday.
