Boyzone singer Keith Duffy had been forced to pull out of his role in an upcoming Irish horror movie alongside fellow Dubliner Samantha Mumba.

The Herald can confirm the dad of two will not be appearing in the low-budget production Loftud Hall, as previously anticipated, because he has already committed to filming scenes for Coronation Street at the time when shooting on the movie begins.

Keith was reportedly due to take on the part of an Irish villain in the co-produced Kenneally Films and Dark Window Films project, alongside Drumcondra beauty Samantha Mumba and Australian actress Adelaide Clemens.

However, co-producer of Loftus Hall Michael Parle said Keith will be tied up with his part on the Street and will not be involved.
