Ronan Keating backs wife for Strictly

Share article:

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.
