He may not have returned to The Voice as a coach this year, but it seems Ronan Keating is set to be back on Aussie screens in another way!
Channel Nine have made the surprising announcement that the Irish singer will join the fourth season of Love Child.
The father of three will make his Australian television acting debut alongside returning Love Child favourites Jessica Marais, Mandy McElhinney, Miranda Tapsell and Harriet Dyer.
"I'm very excited to be returning to Australia to join the incredible cast of the award-winning Nine drama, Love Child, for a special appearance in the new series," he says in a statement released by the network.
"Australia and the amazing people there have been incredibly welcoming to me over the past 25 years, it always feels like home, so it's great to get the chance to show them another side of what I do."
Ronan and his Australian wife Storm are currently expecting their first child together.
