Ronan Keating slates Kate Beckinsale for rude encounter

It looks like Ronan Keating isn't the biggest fan of actress Kate Beckinsale.

The singer was speaking on his breakfast show on Magic about the GQ Awards, which he attended last night (September 5) – and revealed that he was not impressed with the Van Helsing star's behaviour.

He said: "You know the red carpet gets backed up a little bit. Always at all these events, whatever you do there's a little bit of a queue at the red carpet. [Other half] Storm and I are standing there and having a chat with Erin O'Connor the model, and the lady from Game of Thrones – Brienne of Tarth [actress Gwendoline Christie].

"We're having a chat, having a bit of craic and I can see this figure coming… and they're moving at speed. There's no one with them, they're on their own. There's this kind of flowing Bollywood style dress.

"In they walk, past us, through the queue, past the whole queue, straight to the top of the red carpet, in front of the photographers and boom – hand on the hip.

"You can just see everybody in the queue – everyone's just looking, going, 'Who the f does she think she is?!'

"You wouldn't mind if there was one of these American publicist people going, 'Out of the way, excuse me'. But no, on her own, on her tod, walked straight in. Top of the queue, passed everyone out."

He didn't explicitly name Beckinsale on air, but piecing it all together, it isn't too difficult to work out which actress he was talking about.

Ronan's co-host Harriet Scott attempted to get him to reveal the star's name, teasing: "She's a British actress, in a big blockbuster about a big event in World War II, something like a pivotal moment in World War II. She seemed like a really laid back person."

Digital Spy has reached out to Beckinsale's reps for comment.

Beckinsale, who didn't mind not getting the role of Joss Whedon's Wonder Woman because she was NOT impressed with the script, will lead an ITV thriller called The Widow next year.
