Ronan Keating and Yvonne to renew wedding vows: claim

Friends of estranged couple Ronan and Yvonne Keating have expressed surprise at reports the couple are to renew their wedding vows.

Speculation is mounting that the pair are set to exchange vows for a third time in a bid to put Ronan's affair with Boyzone backing dancer Francine Cornell behind them.

However, sources close to Ronan (33) and former model Yvonne (36) insist the renewal of their wedding vows is the first they have heard of it.

It is believed the couple — who have three children together — are working to rebuild their troubled marriage.

“I would be very surprised if that story is true,” a friend said.

“We would all be delighted if it was true — but we haven't heard anything,” the friend added.

The couple, who have been married for 12 years, split in May when Ronan's seven-month affair became public knowledge.

It has been claimed that Ronan wants a clean slate with his wife and believes that yet another marriage ceremony is just the cure.

In spite of announcing their split in May, Yvonne surprised many when she jetted to Oz to join her husband as he resumes his judging duties on Australia's X Factor.
