Ronan Keating backs wife for Strictly

onan Keating wouldn't fear the "Strictly Come Dancing" curse if his wife Storm Keating went on the show.

The Boyzone star has backed the fashion designer - who he married in 2015 - to join next year's series of the BBC ballroom competition, and admitted she is "a big fan".

Asked if he was scared of the "Strictly" curse - which has been coined after several celebrity contestants started dating their professional partners following appearances on the programme - he dismissed the idea.

He told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "Not in the slightest. She's a big fan of the show, she loves it. I can see my wife doing it. She's a great dancer."

Ronan will be stepping onto the dancefloor himself with his bandmates - Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy and Mikey Graham - for a "Children In Need" charity special.

Mikey's dance partner Katya Jones - who is married to fellow pro Neil - was caught up in a scandal on the current series of the show, when she was pictured kissing Seann Walsh on a night out while he was also in a relationship.

Ronan - who confirmed the special edition on social media this week - will be paired up with Gordana Grandosek, while Shane and Keith will team up with Luba Mashtuk and Nadiya Bychkova respectively.
