Ronan Keating is in self-isolation amid the nation's ongoing coronavirus fears. The Boyzone singer, who presents the Magic Radio Breakfast Show, recently returned to the UK after playing a gig in Singapore. Since his trip last week, the 43-year-old has been working remotely from home as an "extra precaution". Speaking on the show earlier this week, Ronan said: "We have to be cautious, we have to be clever about it and it makes total sense. I'm feeling fine."
