Yvonne unveils fiery new look

Ronan Keating has declared his love for his wife Yvonne (left) and said he hopes to put a nightmare year behind him.

Speaking on last night's Late Late Show, Ronan refused to be drawn on his alleged affair with dancer Francine Cornell and the temporary split with Yvonne.

"I love my wife and I love my kids and we just want to move on as a family," he said.

Ronan was speaking as Yvonne wowed guests at the VIP Awards with a new image and a fiery crop of red hair.

But while Ronan was eager to set the record straight on his marriage, his wife refused to discuss the matter.

The mum-of-three relinquished her crown as the country's most stylish woman last night -- but that hasn't stopped her landing a plum job as a TV presenter.

Yvonne revealed that it all started by chance thanks to her pal, supermodel Elle Macpherson.

"I went to meet Elle when she was over filming Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model. She asked me to do an interview and then she asked me to oversee the Irish Challenge.

"It all worked really well and now another production company want me to get involved in a TV project."
