The Voice of Ireland judge Brian Kennedy took a break from feuding with Louis Walsh or storming off chat shows by playing coy over a potential fling with a rugby star.
Speaking to the Irish Independent - having just completed his 'eagerly anticipated' autobiography - the crooner was especially coy.
"Oh dear. I can't confirm or deny," said Kennedy. "What I like in a guy is old-school masculinity. I certainly would be very attracted to an alpha male guy. The bigger and stronger the better.
"I sometimes meet gentlemen who are at the top of what they do from a sports point of view," he added. "All you need to know is that they are some of the finest men on the planet. I'm friendly with some of them. And some from the other teams.
"I lived in England for a long time so I got to know one or two over there too."
Perhaps if Brendan O'Connor is able to coax the singer back onto his horrid chat show (sans Paul Martin hopefully), we'll be able to get to the bottom of this mystery...
