London: Ronan Keating has finally broken his silence over his affair.

Keating had been caught having a seven-month affair with dancer Francine Cornell, who had performed with the Boyzone during their comeback tour.

When Keating’s ex Yvonne found sex texts in his mobile phone, she threw the singer out of their home in Dublin.

She allowed him back into the house, but they have been living separately.

“It has been a really scary time. Thanks so much for all the support from you over the past few weeks. You were the ones who kept me going,” The Daily Express quoted Keating as telling fans during an intimate festival at Henley.
