YVONNE Keating has vowed never to marry again.

Although she is dating cinematographer John Conroy, the former wife of Boyzone star Ronan says she won’t walk down the aisle again.

“I'm never going to get married again,” the mum-of-three told the Herald. “Why would I get married again? I've been there, done that and got the t-shirt.

“I don't regret it at all — it was amazing because I wanted to bring children into the world and we had a lovely family unit,” said Yvonne.

She explained that herself and Ronan are not “yet” divorced as it take four years for a divorce to come through in Ireland.

“Even if I wanted to stay with the same person for the rest of my life I don't feel the need to have a ring on my finger and a dress and that sort of thing.

“It's not that I don't believe in marriage. But for me, age 40, I'm really happy I'm having great fun. I wouldn't do it again,” she said.

Meanwhile, Australian X Factor Judge Ronan (36) is rumoured to be planning on popping the question to his partner Storm Uechtritz.

“It may be something Ronan wants to do in the future and if he does that's fine,” said Yvonne.

After appearing on Celebrity Masterchef Yvonne is eager to pursue a career in front of the camera. “I had to be pushed out in front of the cameras at first I was so nervous but then I had to be dragged off. It's crazy the adrenaline rush you get.

“There is more of a buzz to live TV,” she added’

Next week, Yvonne will be heading to the UK to discuss future projects.

“This Morning are having a big bash for their 25th anniversary. I have nothing booked in but there are talks of doing more slots,” said Yvonne.

Yvonne was talking at the launch of Bord Na Mona's The Big Family Craicle encouraging families to relish in the warmth of a craicling fire.
