Former Boyzone singer Ronan Keating appeared on Loose Women this afternoon (November 17) and opened up about the sudden loss of his brother.
Ronan’s older brother, Ciaran Keating, died suddenly in a car crash at age 57 in July. At the time, he was on the way to watch his son play football. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision.

‘It was so quick, so immediate, so fast, so unexpected’
Today’s taping of Loose Women featured an all-male panel, which included Vernon Kay, Harry Redknapp, Ore Oduba and Ronan.
During their segment about mental health, the Lovin’ Each Day hitmaker revealed he is still “struggling” over Ciaran’s tragic death.
“It’s been a tough few months dealing with it because it was so quick, so immediate, so fast, unexpected,” he said.
Ronan explained that he and his family “are still figuring it all out” but have one another to lean on. “That’s really really important,” he added.
“Having someone who is going through something that feels the same that you feel they understand what I’m going through and that’s a big part of it.”
Expressing that others have come up to him since his brother’s death, telling him they know how they feel, Ronan insisted they “don’t know how I feel”.
However, since Ciaran’s passing, Ronan has been happy to see that his other brother has been “vocal about how he’s feeling,” stating he wouldn’t have been before. “It’s been a very tough few months but having each other as siblings has been really important.”
