Old friend Keith Duffy says Ronan's in love and staying in the UK
KEITH Duffy has revealed that his Boyzone bandmate Ronan Keating will remain based in England for the next three months before embarking on a UK tour.
Keating (35) returned from Australia with new girlfriend, TV producer Storm Uechtritz, pictured, in recent weeks.
The couple appeared on the red carpet at last weekend's Emeralds and Ivy charity ball in London.
Duffy spent time with the couple last month when he visited Australia to guest on 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Here' and found them very much in love.
"I'm delighted for both of them. The break-up Ronan had would be would be tough for anyone, but if you're in the public eye it's particularly horrible.
"Your heart is broken and you have to read about it every day," said Duffy who plans on working with Keating again next year on an album and tour celebrating Boyzone's 20th anniversary.
But yesterday the 'Coronation Street' star was in a Fossett's Circus big top to promote a fundraiser.
They will donate €1 from every ticket sold for their four-week run at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham to charity Irish Autism Action.
