Ronan Keating was forced to abandon a recent filming session for his latest single - after a group of naked ladies crowded around the Irish pop hunk and refused to leave.

The ex-BOYZONE star was recording the demo for his new song I HOPE YOU DANCE in the Thai resort of Phuket.

But his crew had accidentally set up near a nudist beach, and the female bathers refused to get out of the camera shot when Keating arrived, reports British newspaper The Sun.

A shocked witness says, "It was a huge shock when Ronan was surrounded by naked ladies. The women refused to go away so there was no choice but to pack up."
