X Factor Australia judge Ronan Keating says he hates being single after split from wife Yvonne
The couple – who were once thought of as having the most solid of marriages in the music industry – parted ways earlier this year having tried, and failed, to repair the damage done to their relationship over Ronan’s affair with dancer Francine Cornell.
Since the split, Ronan spends his time flying between Australia and the UK in order to carry out his work commitments on X Factor and to see his children, Jack, 13, Marie, 11, and Ali, six.
However, in an interview with the Sun, Ronan revealed that he hates being single, and misses the family life he once enjoyed.
He said, “Nobody wants to go through a relationship and have kids and think it’ll ever break up…
“I see myself as a failure. It’s been devastating for the children.”
“That’s the hardest thing to bear. I’m a free spirit for the first time in years, but I didn’t want that. I liked being in a relationship.”
Shame he didn’t think of that before really isn’t it?
