Any hopes Ronan Keating had of reconciling with his estranged wife have been dashed after it emerged she is now dating.
Yvonne Keating, 38, was heartbroken when she found out the Boyzone star had cheated on her with a backing dancer but, she is now reportedly seeing a father-of-six.
Cameraman John Conroy began courting Yvonne at the beginning of the year on the set of Dark Touch, a film that 11-year-old Missy Keating was working on.

John reportedly left his wife in January, ending their 20-year marriage, and has fallen completely in love with the Irish beauty.
Ronan, 35, will be devastated at the news after recently admitting that he is still struggling to deal with the fact he ruined his own 14-year marriage.
A source close to Ronan told the Mirror: 'The news that Yvonne has found love again has hit him really hard.
'He was desperate to try to make her give him another chance, but by cheating on her like he did, Ronan broke the trust that once existed between them.'

The source added: 'He has made no secret of how much he is still hurting over the break-up of his marriage. Now he is having to try to accept that his wife is dating again.'
Ronan and Yvonne – who married in April 1998 on the Caribbean island of Nevis – initially described their break-up as ‘amicable'.
Speaking to the mail last month Ronan said: 'I spent too much time away,’ he says sadly.
‘I missed Yvonne, I missed my children, and I made a mistake. We tried to get over it, but we couldn’t, and now I’m a single man again.
'Being on my own is all new to me. I was young when I got married – just 21. So to be suddenly on my own, at 35, is weird.’
