Ronan Keating has opened up about his audition for Moulin Rouge.

During his appearance on tonight's pre-recorded Jonathan Ross Show, the 38-year-old singer says it was a disaster.

"It was dreadful and it was choking and I was terrible and obviously I didn't get the part."

As well as his solo singing career, however, Ronan has forged an acting career, despite his Moulin Rouge failure.

He starred in 2013 film Goddess and is currently filming Another Mother's Son.

Ronan also told Wossy that he wouldn't be averse to a collaboration between Irish boybands Boyzone and Westlife.

Both bands were managed by Louis Walsh with the former coming to prominence in the 90s before Westlife hit the scene a decade later.

Keating, who released his new solo album this week, reveals he's "open" to teaming up with Mark Feehily, Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan and Shane Filan at some point in the future.

"Westzone? I don't know what it's going to be, who knows?" he says before adding that he's "open to it, yes".

Boyzone  will celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2017 and are planning a reunion tour.

"We get on well, it would be very special for us to be able to mark that.  Twenty-five years is a long time, it's amazing and we've left a lot of great memories with a lot of people and to do that again would be amazing," says Ronan.

The newlywed also said he would love to have more children with new wife Storm.

Keating already has three children with ex-wife Yvonne Connolly.
