DANA has become an online sensation with Twitter's #danafacts.
The quirky posts purported to give "unknown facts" about the former Eurovision winner.
Among the most popular were: "Dana knows how they get the figs in the fig rolls" and "Dana is called Londondana by the unionist community".
Another poster joked: "Pope Benedict sleeps in a Dana T-shirt."
