RTÉ has dismissed rumours that broadcaster Pat Kenny was blocked from appearing on Ray D'Arcy's radio show ahead of transmission of Kenny's UTV Ireland chat show 'In the Round'.

"An invitation was extended to Pat. Unfortunately, there was a conflict in schedules.

"There was absolutely no blocking on RTÉ's side," said a spokesperson for the station.

Kenny also confirmed there was no truth in the rumour.

"I was approached by Ray D'Arcy's team to appear on the show but I couldn't do it as I had a prior commitment," he said. "There is no truth in the suggestion I was blocked. None whatsoever."

Earlier this week, Kenny said he had "no bad blood" with RTÉ.
