Irish singer Danny O'donoghue has been hiding a secret heartache after his beloved mother suffered an aneurysm last year (13).

The rocker has now revealed that he has been caring for his mum Ailish since she fell ill with a potentially life-threatening illness.

He tells Britain's The Sun, "She had a brain aneurysm on the base of her skull. I flew straight home and we were told she might not make it through the night. We had weeks and weeks of care and being t...

Here’s where the leader board stood as of Monday ni...
