Voice of Ireland coach Rachel Stevens may like hitting the dance floor on Strictly Come Dancing, but she has no plans to head into the jungle on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out if Here.

Her fellow coach Kian Egan won the top reality show in 2013 but the S Club 7 singer said she wouldn't like to follow in his footsteps with Bushtucker trials.

"I don't think I'd last five minutes in there, my God. I'm such a wuss. Creeply crawlies, the whole thing - I couldn't do that," she said.

Meanwhile, Bressie has described the newest judge as a "silent assassin" when she is pitching herself to the contestants and Rachel says she's delighted with her team so far. But she knows things will change once the live shows start in March.

"I'm very vhappy with how my team's looking. There was no game plan, I just wanted to go in and go with what I felt in the moment," she said.

"When it gets to the live shows it depends on how they are on the night.

"It depends on their song choices, their popularity, you just don't know."

She also revealed that herself and Una have particularly bonded on the show.

"I like them all for different reasons. I love Una because we've come in together as the two new girls. Girl Power," she said.

"We've got a lot in common, she's a great girl, there's really good support between us both.

"But I like the guys as well for different reasons."

Libertines set for Dublin

The Libertines have announced that they will take to the stage at Dublin's 3Arena on July 9, with tickets on sale this Friday, at 9am.

The concert will mark the band's first date in Ireland in nearly 10 years.

Tickets are priced from €49.50, including booking fee, and can be purchased from Ticketmaster outlets nationwide.

Missy lands latest role

The apple didn't fall far from the tree where Yvonne and Ronan Keating's children are concerned as their daughters Ali and Missy have caught the acting bug.

"Missy has just done her fourth movie, she's been a lead in two of them and other parts in the other two," Yvonne said.

"She's having a great time - absolutely loving it, and Ali just got a part in an Idris Elba movie that he is directing and starring in, it's a short for Sky Arts."

"It's a small little part…he's obviously an amazing actor so she can't wait," she added.
