Ronan Keating says Thom Yorke is a "muppet".
The Boyzone star - who recently completed a trek up Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of British charity Comic Relief - dislikes the Radiohead frontman because he treated him badly when they met.
Asked which celebrity he would like to throw off a mountain, Ronan replied: "Thom Yorke from Radiohead. He's a muppet. He was rude to us one day - he was rude to my face and I don't have much time for rudeness."
Despite his delight at completing the trek, Ronan admits he and his celebrity team mates - among them singers Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Alesha Dixon and Gary Barlow and radio presenter Chris Moyles - took a while to get used to the basic facilities on the walk.
He said: "It wasn't very 'celebrity' when he had to go to the toilet in a bucket! You have to accept it, don't you - it all become part and parcel of what you're doing."
The 32-year-old star added all of the boys were amazed with how good their female counterparts looked throughout the excursion.
He laughed: "It was unbelievable, all the lads looked like we'd just been in a fight and the girls all looked amazing! I guess being in the industry they had all sorts of tips and came well prepared.
"There was no diva-like behaviour at all - Chris Moyles was probably the biggest diva!"
