Ronan Does a Robbie
Keating snubs Boyzone reunion...
Stephen Gately recently announced that he'd spoken to Ronan at Elton John and David Furnish's wedding about reviving the band. "We had a long chat about reforming and (Ronan) is definitely in," he said. "He said he can't wait to meet up with the rest of the lads again. It's now just a case of agreeing a time when everyone is free."
"There's a lot of preparation to be done," he added. "I've started to hit the gym again to get a bit fitter for the dance moves. I've also started a diet to help me get in shape."
But a statement posted on ronankeating.com yesterday said: "Contrary to recent press speculation, Ronan has no plans to get back together with Boyzone just now. The guys all remain good friends but with a new solo album coming out Ronan is not able to commit to a Boyzone reunion at present."
Will Boyzone reform without Ronan, much like Take That without Robbie Williams? But then would anyone pay money to see Boyzone perform if Ronan wasn't there? We'll keep you posted
