With Storm Keating hitting the headlines for calling out a cleaner after being accused of “refusing to pay”, you might be wondering who she is and how she met the Boyzone hunk, Ronan Keating.
In case you missed it, Storm Keating has hit back at a former cleaner’s claims that she and husband Ronan refused to pay a £500 bill.
The mum-of-two, 40, called out Jasmina Dimitrieva on Instagram when she shared a series of photos of her £5million house after it had been cleaned.
Storm said that cleaner Jasmina had left her family home in a “disgraceful state” and said she had been left with “no choice but to share the truth on the matter.”
The pictures shared showed a stained toilet bowl, another toilet left unflushed and stuffed with paper while dirty fingerprints and scribbles were visible on a wall.
