Ronan Keating has revealed that he regrets writing his autobiography at the age of 24.

The Boyzone singer released Life is a Rollercoaster in 2001, but now admits that he wishes he had waited until later in life.

Keating told Smooth Radio Book Club presenter Lynn Parsons: "Really that book was a little premature. I was a kid when I wrote that.

"I came out of a successful boyband and my solo career was doing well. [There were] all these offers on the table to do a book.

"I would have said, 'Don't - wait'. I could write a hell of a book right now.

"I mean what's happened since, losing Stephen [Gately], you know everything that's happened in my life, separating from my wife - that book just got far more interesting, that's for sure."
