Yvonne to join Boyzone on tour so she can keep a close eye on love rat Ronan

LOVE rat Ronan Keating's wife Yvonne will travel with next year's Boyzone tour to ensure he doesn't stray again.

The couple called time on their 12-year marriage after it was revealed that Ronan cheated on the mother of his three children with Boyzone backing dancer Francine Cornell (26) during their tour last year.

Ronan moved out of the couple's Malahide mansion after details of his sordid affair hit the headlines in May.

However, since then, Yvonne has travelled to Australia with their three children as Ronan completes his judging stint on the Australian version of X Factor. A reunion between the couple has not been confirmed, but speculation about whether they are giving their marriage another go is mounting.

An insider revealed that Yvonne had been keeping close tabs on him and would be continuing to do so when he hits the road with bandmates Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham and Shane Lynch after Christmas.

"Yvonne has told Ronan that his days of heading off for weeks on end touring have come to an end," the insider said.

"Both she and the kids have to come first and they will be with him as much as possible while he is on the road."

Furious Yvonne is said to be willing to give their relationship another go as long as Ronan makes efforts to work on it too.

"His lifestyle is going to have change, and Ronan has told her that he will do anything she wants. She always spent a bit of time on the road with him, but now she wants to ensure that he doesn't lose the run of himself again.
