Ronan Keating intends marrying his long-term girlfriend Storm Uechtritz

Ronan Keating has revealed he would "love" to marry his girlfriend Storm Uechtritz.

The Boyzone singer met the TV executive on the set of the Australian 'X Factor' - on which he is a judge - and he admits the pair have been considering tying the knot and when they do make that commitment they won't wed in secret like some celebrities.

When asked if there was any truth to the rumours he and Storm are getting ready to marry, he said: "Of course we'd love to, yes ... there'll be no secret, we haven't planned anything yet. We'd have to tell our families first!"

Ronan admits there is a lot to do before he makes Storm his wife.

The main obstacle for the couple being married is that the 'Life is a Rollercoaster' hitmaker hasn't actually proposed yet.

"Of course I'd have to ask her and she might not even say 'yes'! There are so many things that have to happen ... There's a whole process, so please let me do that," he explained in an interview on 'This Morning'.

The 37-year-old pop star was previously married to Irish model Yvonne Connolly - with whom he has three children, Jack, 15, Marie, 13, and Ali, nine - but they split in 2011 following revelations he was having an affair.
