Ronan meeting

Celebrity stalking tends to be a pastime of the mentally unhinged but in this case we can make an exception (sort of).

After taking a brief stroll down the alleyway outside their offices, a couple of male PRs from Polhill happened to notice ex-Boyzone heartthrob Ronan Keating loitering nearby (probably begging).

Their mistake was to mention this to the girls working in Polhill&#39s office who apparently left scorch marks in their haste to sprint outside and accost the elfin-faced crooner.

Aside from Ronan&#39s slightly scared expression, the Diary&#39s favourite aspect of the picture is the girl on the extreme left who does not work for Polhill but was just a stranger who got into the shot at the last moment. So annoying.
