Irish singer Ronan Keating is shooting videos of Thailand's tsunami-ravaged coastline for the forthcoming MTV ASIA AID charity event.

Keating will appear alongside a host of stars including Alicia Keys and Kelly Clarkson in the segments which will be shown during the fundraising show in Bangkok on Thursday (03FEB05).

The WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL star is also working with the south east Asian country's tourism board to reassure holiday-makers it is safe to visit the region by filming areas which were left untouched by the 26 December (04) disaster.

The 27-year-old says, "We should get it out of our heads what happened here and come back, and make it the place it was before. It's a magical place."
