EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.
Prince Harry drank champagne out of a prosthetic leg during a charity trek to the South Pole. Let’s just take a moment to let that sink in.
The leg in question belonged to former soldier Duncan Slater, who volunteered it as a makeshift ice bucket for their celebratory champagne on reaching the South Pole.

Harry was joined on the trek by The Wire actor Dominic West, who said the prince told “eye-wateringly rude jokes” and built elaborate latrines that looked like castles:
He did one with castellated sides and a flag pole, a loo roll holder, and you’re sitting there thinking ‘this is a real royal flush’. He must have spent about 40 minutes making it.
We love Harry. (Telegraph)
Kian Egan’s recording a solo album. Riding the crest of his I’m A Celebrity… win, he’s signed a deal with Warner Music in the UK. He told the Mail Online:
Music is my first love, and to be able to get in the studio to record these amazing songs by such wonderful writers is such a thrill and an honour for me.
The album will follow the tried and true Westlife format – a few original tracks, as well as a few covers.
