Mikey Graham didn’t tell Stephen Gately about Dancing On Ice

Mikey Graham has admitted that he deeply regrets not telling his late bandmate Stephen Gately, that he was following in his footsteps and competing on ITV’s Dancing On Ice.

The Boyzone singer told The Sun: “When I was told I was doing the show I was been sworn to secrecy and couldn’t tell anyone in the band.

“I never got to tell him I was doing the show and he would have loved that. He would have been so supportive and that’s a regret I will have throughout the series.”

He added: “I certainly feel he’s here all the time and I hope he’ll look out for me while I’m in the competition – and maybe give me a bit of good luck whenever I need it.

“It all feels quite strange but it’s comforting to know he’ll be looking down on me with a twinkle in his eye.”
