Ronan Keating recalls being "thrown about the room" at Isle of Wight Festival
Boyzone star Ronan Keating has spoken about his incident with a drunken man at the Isle of Wight Festival at the weekend.
Reports had emanated from the media that Keating was backstage at the festival on Sunday (June 24) when an inebriated man made fun of his height and picked him up.
Speaking to Ireland's 98FM, Keating said that the man was throwing him about the room and "just got a bit silly". He said:
"This guy had a few too many drinks and he just got a bit silly. He started throwing me around the room. He was a nobody, bless him. Well, he thinks he's a somebody today, God love him."
He added: "I didn't touch him – I probably should have."
Keating meanwhile is back on solo duty as he records a new album, and he told the radio station:
"It's great just to be back and doing it."
