Michael McIntyre sends embarrassing text to all contacts from Ronan Keating's phone and Russell Crowe responds

By Anna O'Donoghue

Don’t ask us why he did it but Ronan Keating willingly handed his phone over to Michael McIntyre to have free rein as part of his Big Show on BBC One.

The segment named, ‘Send To All’ sees the comedian send an embarrassing text to everyone in Ronan’s contact list.

Who would have thought the list included Russell Crowe and James Blunt? Not us anyway.

“Feeling a little insecure. Do you still think I’m hot?” McIntyre typed.

“I mean Harry Styles, Bieber and that guy who plays Poldark… Can I still compete with these guys?”

Saved this in my phone especially for ya Michael thought you would like a copy. #Sendtoall #fatify

And then came the replies.

Of course his brother Gerard replied “No” while Amanda Abbington asked “Is this that guy from Westlife?”.

*cringe*

James Blunt then hilariously replied, “Ronan. You are the king, they are all just cheap imitations of you. You will always be No.1. PS – We should be together.”

While his besite Russell Crowe had the whole situation copped “”Someone’s got your phone mate!”

Is it just us or were they suspiciously fast replies?
