Ireland's two-time Eurovision Song Contest winner Johnny Logan has admitted that he never saw himself as good looking despite the scenes of pandemonium that greeted his public appearances back in the 1980s.
Speaking on the latest episode of Keys to My Life, RTÉ’s new show which sees well-known Irish people revisit the places that played a vital role in their lives, the singer tells presenter Brendan Courtney that he was mystified by the attention.
"It’s easy to say that now but I never saw myself as good looking or anything like that when I was younger," he says.
"People told me that they thought I was a very handsome man or whatever."
Replying to Courtney’s insistence that Logan was a "sex symbol", the ever-boyish 65-year-old singer, who won the Eurovision in 1980 and again in 1987, says, "I can see it now but I couldn’t see it back then."
Speaking about his double win with What’s Another Year in 1980 and Hold Me Now in 1987, Logan says, "The thing is, it wasn’t my win, it was Ireland’s win, sharing in that win."
In the intimate celebrity biography show, Brendan Courtney also brings Anne Doyle, footballer Frank Stapleton, country singer Margo O’Donnell, and former Mrs Brown’s Boys star Rory Cowan back to their old haunts.
Keys to My life is airs this Sunday at 8.30pm on RTÉ One.
