Ronan Keating has admitted that he may quit his job as a judge on Australian TV’s version of The X Factor in order to spend more time with girlfriend Storm Uechtritz.

Keating - who has been dating Uechtritz for 12 months - takes on fellow judges Dannii Minogue, Natalie Bassingthwaighte and LMFAO frontman Redfoo in the talent show's current fifth season.

But his future on the show is in doubt after he told Australia's TV Weekly: "This could be my last year. I make massive sacrifices with my career. Every year I consider if I can really do it again. The show is a big commitment."

Keating added that having two careers was affecting his relationship with the Australian-born Uechtritz, who’s a TV executive."We are both so busy. We barely get to see each other," he said.

"The only time is when I'm on set or when she travels with me while I'm working."
