Ronan Keating's great 2015

Ronan Keating has had one of the best years ever.

The Boyzone singer married Storm Uechtritz after five years together in August and earlier this month, his annual Emeralds and Ivy Ball - which is held in honour of his late mother Marie and which he co-hosted with his wife for the first time - raised a record-breaking amount for cancer charities, and he admits life couldn't be better.

He said: "Every year since meeting Storm I've looked back and thought, 'Wow, what an amazing year and what a lucky man I am' but 2015 has certainly topped them all.

"To finish the year off raising over a million pounds is the ultimate conclusion to a very memorable 12 months."

Ronan - who has children Jack, 16, Missy, 14, and Ali, 10, with ex-wife Yvonne - can't wait to see what the future hold for his charity, The Marie Keating Foundation.

He said: "I'm really looking forward to what the next decade will bring.

"With Storm and the kids involved now, plus the whole Keating family by my side, we're a powerhouse team."

Though the 'Life is a Rollercoaster' hitmaker has had a great year, he admits he and his 35-year-old wife struggle to get a lot of time together.

He said: "Married life is brilliant, unbelievable and our honeymoon was amazing and perfect.

" But we're both so busy that being in each other's life is the hard part at the moment."
