Love Island shock as Ronan Keating's son Jack, 23, enters Casa Amor villa | The Sun

BOYZONE star Ronan Keating's lookalike son Jack is joining Love Island.

The tattooed lad is one of six boys joining the ITV show's notorious Casa Amor stage next week.

Jack, 23, said his famous dad, who also hosts The One Show, was "buzzing for me".

He added that he was doing the show because he's been single for five years – and insisted he would break up an established couple if he had to.

Casa Amor sees Love Island's couples put to the test – with the girls being sent away to a secret villa to meet a group of new boys.

Meanwhile, the lads stay put and be joined by a fresh line-up of beauties to see if they stray.

Talking about Ronan, 45, before going into the villa Jack explained: "He will be watching when I’m on it for sure.

"He’s buzzing for me, me and my dad are very close, we’re best mates."

He added: "I’m very competitive, for sure. I play rugby back home in Dublin and in London so I’ve definitely got that competitive edge.

"I’m gonna have to potentially break up a couple maybe. It won’t be the most ideal thing, but I’ve got to do what’s best for me."

With his good looks and promise of "good chat and a bit of Irish charm" he is likely to be a hit with the girls.

Asked why he was doing the show he explained: "I’ve been single for a long time, probably 4 or 5 years now.

"I’ve really been missing that spark that I haven’t been getting on the dating scene, like I’ve been dating for a long time. I just thought why not?"

Jack is the second celebrity child signed to the show by ITV after Michael Owen's daughter Gemma, 19.

Producers also offered a place to Kerry Katona and Brian McFadden's daughter Lilly McFadden, also 19, but she turned it down.

Jack will be joined in Casa Amor by accounts manager Deji Adeniyi, 25, labourer George Tasker, 23, models Josh Samuel Le Grove, 22 and Samuel Agbiji, and roofer Billy Brown, 23.

Jack, who lives in London and works in social media marketing, is the only son from Ronan's first marriage to wife Yvonne alongside sisters Missy and Ali.

They split in 2015 and the singer went on to have two children called Cooper and Coco with second wife Storm.
