Who is Jack Keating?
Jack Keating is Ronan Keating’s son, and Yvonne Connolly is an Irish model and television personality.
The 23-year-old, originally from Dublin, now lives in London and works as a social media marketer.
When asked why he wanted to be on Love Island and why now, he replied: “I have been single for a while, probably four or five years now, and I feel that spark that I haven’t been getting on the relationship scene. It’s not like I’ve been in a relationship for an extended period.
“And I thought, why not?” “I hope I can make a connection with someone and see what happens.”
Jack said that his dad was his “best friend” and described himself as “very family-oriented” and “wears his heart on his sleeves a lot of times.”

What has he said about son Jack going on Love Island?

“It’s fascinating because my boy Jack, my eldest son, has been hiding in Spain for the last couple of weeks, preparing himself to move into a specific house.
So, if you haven’t been on social networking in the past hour and a quarter, or two hours, you won’t know that Jack is going to Love Island tonight.
Now, I don’t want you all to leave the gig now, but wait until the end and watch it [the ITV Hub] But yeah, it’s fascinating. He’s in Casa Amor. I’ve been doing a lot of sh*ting. I’ve never been able to share any information with you. But now I can.
I don’t know what to feel. He’s going to be amazing. He’s going to be incredible, a sweetheart, and has the biggest heart in the world. I’m so proud.
