Watch: Ronan Keating stalls when asked whether daughter Missy will appear on Love Island
There have been rumors that the singer’s 21-year-old daughter Missy is being lined up for the next series of the ITV dating show.
And presenter Ben Shephard couldn’t resist asking Keating about it when he appeared on GMB.
“Very excited, as you know I am a watcher of television, to hear the rumour that Missy, your daughter, may be making her way onto Love Island,” he said.
Looking a bit coy, the Boyzone star replied: "I haven't heard anything but you never know, these kids are busy.
"All my kids, they're all busy doing different things. I haven't heard anything myself at the moment."
Keating, 45, started to squirm when Shephard's co-host Kate Garraway chimed in to ask how he’d feel if Missy did enter the villa.
“How would you feel?” asked the presenter.
“Because I am sure you love Love Island but I wonder if it's different if you are a dad watching a daughter on it."
Looking a bit taken aback, he replied: “Er… pass!”
“Yeah I don't know how I feel about that one,” Keating laughed, adding that he didn’t think he’d be able to watch.
Missy is the star’s eldest daughter from his relationship with his ex-wife Yvonne.
She has already dabbled in reality TV as she was previously a contestant on Dancing With The Stars Ireland and there has been some speculation about her being on the dating show.
She added fuel to the fire this week when she shared a selfie on Instagram and asked fans: “Celebrating something today. Can you guess what?”
Keating also shares son Jack, 23, and daughter Ali, 16, with Yvonne.
He is now married to second wife Storm and they have five-year-old son Cooper and daughter Coco, two.
The new series of Love Island is due to start in June.
