Ronan found wife for DJ Chris on the golf course

Ronan Keating is obviously a man of many talents -- just ask Chris Evans.

The ginger-haired radio presenter has revealed how it was thanks to the Boyzone singer that he met his current wife Natasha Shishmanian.

The ex-husband of Billie Piper, who is taking over from Limerick native Terry Wogan on his Radio 2 breakfast slot, has explained how the Dublin star turned matchmaker.

Former hellraiser Chris, who was once worth nearly €100m, said that he turned to golf to help him keep fit after years of boozing.

"Golf has saved me from a lot of things -- takes up a lot of time, keeps you out of the pub, keeps you in the open air, and I respect the game.

"And suddenly I walk on to a golf course and the most beautiful person I've ever seen playing golf is about to take a tee shot," he explained.

"She then swings the golf club, and she's got a really good swing, and I'm like, 'Who's that?'

And I was with Ronan who said, 'Her name's Natasha, she writes for a golf magazine,' and I said, 'Really?' And that was that."
