Who is Keith Duffy?

Keith Peter Thomas Francis John Duffy is an Irish singer-songwriter, actor, radio and television presenter and drummer. He began his professional music career as part of Irish boy band Boyzone alongside Ronan Keating, Mikey Graham, Shane Lynch and Stephen Gately in 1993. The band decided to focus on solo projects in 2000 since which Duffy has achieved critical acclaim for his acting roles, particularly in soap operas such as Coronation Street and Fair City. He has also presented The Box and You're a Star.

Duffy has been an autism "awareness" campaigner since his daughter was diagnosed with the condition at age 18 months, and acts as the patron for Irish Autism Action holding regular fundraising events and informational talks. In 2012, he admitted his disappointment that One Direction were already “much, much bigger” than Boyzone.

Duffy was the winner on the British reality TV series The Door.
