Ronan Keating isn't doing any Christmas shopping this year.

The Boyzone singer - who has three children, Jack, 14, Marie, 12, and eight-year-old Ali with ex-wife Yvonne - is leaving gift buying to his girlfriend Storm Uechtritz as he did it in 2012, but he will be helping out with other festive tasks.

He said: ''I'll be at home in Ireland for Christmas - I'm spending the big day with my girlfriend Storm and my kids. I'm really looking forward to it.

''Storm will do the shopping beforehand - it's her turn this year because I did it last year - and we'll both cook.''

While Ronan still remembers the best gift he received when he was a child, he insists he isn't interested in material possessions this year.

He added to Britain's OK! magazine: ''Christmas is a special time of year for everyone - I remember getting my first BMX bike when I was a kid and it was the best present ever.

''What do I want to receive this time around? Happiness. My wish for everyone is happiness this coming year.''
