The former boyband star admits that he doesn't feel his age and often forgets he is into his fourth decade.

“I feel like a 19 year old, and when I look in the mirror and see a 41 year old looking back at me...I kind of go, who are you?” Keith told Today FM's Anton Savage.

“I have great fun, and what keeps me young is that I was a father so young. Jay is nearly 20 now and we’re like two bold children” he continued.

The Dublin native was on air to speak about his charity dinner in Ashbourne restaurant Eatzen tonight.

 “I’m the biggest one...well in fact I’m not; Jay is bigger than me now. He’s three inches taller than me now," Keith shared.

Jay (19) is a fledgling actor, who made his debut on Hollyoaks in 2011.
