Personal life
Ronan Keating grew up in Bayside, Dublin. He attended Bayside Primary School and St. Fintan's High School, Sutton, Dublin.
 yesterday said he is determined to appear on Friday night's show despite still recovering from a health scare.

Because of damp conditions during the band's recent visit to Sweden, Ronan temporarily lost his voice.

He had to be flown back to Ireland for treatment by specialists who are expected to give him the all-clear for the TOTP TOTP Top of the Pops (TV show)

 date.

"He has been laid-up in bed ever since and please God he'll be joining us on stage," fellow singer Keith Duffy said last night.

"He's determined to make the date despite the problems he's been having with his voice.

"It's a big night for us and I know he wouldn't want to miss it for the world.

"We're all really excited and absolutely thrilled to be doing the show to mark our fourth number one at a time when our critics didn't believe we could."

The lads' latest hit knocked the Spice Girls off the UK number one spot at the weekend and has since sold more than 277,000 copies nationwide.

It has also become the most successful ever song from a musical, and it is the first time Lloyd Webber has had a chart hit from a musical since Evita's Don't Cry For Me Argentina in 1976.

Keith Duffy added: "The lads are just over the moon because of the success of this song.

"We could get another five years out of the band and this just shows that we still have a lot to offer people."
