Keane took part after being nominated by fellow LA Galaxy teammate Mike Magee.

However showing how ‘Hollywood’ he’s become, the Tallaght native nominated movie star Mickey Rourke to next take the challenge. 

Robbie and wife Claudine moved to the sunshine state after he joined Los Angeles team LA Galaxy – the team David Beckham famously joined prior to his retirement.

The couple have one child together, Robbie Jnr who's aged five.

The trio live together in a Bel-Air mansion since Robbie was signed to LA Galaxy in 2011.

Claudine regularly jets home for various social and personal events, including Rosanna Davison's third wedding at the Powerscourt Hotel.

But she is determined to settle in to LA life as much as possible for her son.

"I like living in LA, but I like knowing that I can come home and that home is always there," she told RSVP Magazine.

"Becaue if someone told me I was going to be there for two years non-stop, I would probably had a breakdown.

"I love it because I know I can come back and see my family.

"It is a lovely place to live and bring up your kids and you have the weather, and the beaches. But, you know, I also like a happy medium and getting home."

The former face of Ultimo lingerie said that little Robert has also been picking up an American accent since moving to the States when he was just a baby.

"He has a twang,  he will say words like: 'Get the trash can' and 'I want some candy'. But he also has the Irish. 'What's the craic?' I suppose living with a mother being totally Irish, he just picks up what he hears," she added.

"He's not in school yet, he starts school in September and you have to be five to start school over here."
