Former Boyzone star Ronan Keating offered ‘Top of the Pops’ a career survival guide, including his advice to avoid talking rubbish for headlines. “I understand it, but I definitely don’t do that,” he said. “We don’t sit down and put a plan together. I hope people see that I’m not like that. I don’t look to shock people. I don’t use that tactic. I did an interview last week and I said something that I didn’t want the journalist to pick up on and run with, because it was just a sensationalist thing.”
The interview transcript at bbc.co.uk has since been removed.
