Ronan Keating's Son Is Entering The Love Island Villa

Ronan Keating's Son Is Entering The Love Island Villa

There's nothing like the offspring of celebrities entering the Love Island villa to get fans of the reality show excited.

So it'll come as no surprise that viewers were delighted to see Ronan Keating's son making an appearance.

Last night (1 July), it was revealed that 23-year-old Jack Keating will be headed to Casa Amor to no doubt stir up trouble among the existing contestants.

His dad – you know, the former Boyzone singer – has since responded to the news on social media and it's safe to say he's excited.

Taking to Instagram, the 45-year-old star shared a video of him on stage at a recent show where he said: "So, I've got something that I've been wanting to share with you since the start of the tour.

"It's very, very exciting because my eldest boy Jack Keating has been hiding away in Spain for the last couple of weeks preparing himself for a certain house."

As the crowd cheered in acknowledgement, he continued: "So if you haven't been on social media in the last hour and a half/two hours, you won't know that my boy Jack is going into Love Island."


He then quipped: "Now I don't want you all leaving the gig now to go home and watch it, right? Wait until the end and then you can watch it on ITV Player."

And while he's 'very excited' for his son, Ronan admitted he's 's***ting himself', given the trouble the contestants tend to get themselves into on the hit ITV show.

But the singer has all the confidence in Jack, adding: "I'm very excited for him, he's going to be amazing, he's a sweetheart, he's got the biggest heart in the world.


"I'm so proud of him and off he goes, this is his adventure. It's all about him and I'm just going to sit back and watch Love Island."

As for what Jack's looking for on the island, he told the show: "I’ve really been missing that spark that I haven’t been getting on the dating scene."

While he doesn't have any 'icks', as the eldest of Ronan's sons he's looking for someone who is family orientated.

As said, Jack will be entering Casa Amor - for the uninitiated, this is an alternate villa where the existing male contestants are sent to.


The girls, meanwhile, stay in the main house, and both groups are introduced to an entirely new set of potential suiters.

It's designed to put existing relationships to the test to see if people will stay faithful to their SO or stray with someone new.
