Ronan Keating has quashed rumours of a Boyzone reunion.
The solo artist, who releases his latest album next week, ended speculation that the boy band are set to reunite.
However the singer demanded apology from former manager Louis Walsh, who he claims destroyed their close bond when he started talking about him negatively in the press, and Keating is subsequently wary of reconciliation.
Boyzone, comprising of Keating, Stephen Gately.
Keith Duffy, Shane Lynch, Ritchie Rock and Mark Walton – split in 1999 after five years of chart success.
Speaking about his relationship with Walsh he said, "We socialised together, we loved the same sort of music, we got on very well together, he understood me, I understood him. It hurt me more than anything else the way he went on. He tried to absolutely ruin me, the things he said about me.
“If Louis Walsh came up and said sorry, I'd say great, I'd shake his hand. I never said a bad word about him so I don't need to apologise back," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
Ronan’s new album Bring You Home will be released on June 5.
