Ronan Keating was left red-faced at a UK music festival over the weekend, when he was hoisted into the air by a fellow reveller.

The Boyzone star came in for a ribbing over his height, before the drunken music fan lifted him up.

A spokesperson for the 5 foot 8 crooner confirmed to the Sun newspaper that Keating was "accosted" by a man in a bar at the Isle of Wight Festival.

The boozed-up punter then felt the ire of the event's security and was booted out of the VIP area as a result.
