Shane is not the only Irish celebrity to have fake profiles set up claiming to be them.

Just one day before, Ronan Keating shared a similar message with his fans warning them.

“Hey a few people telling me there are impersonators on social media pretending to be me trying to scam people out of money etc,” he said on Instagram stories.

“It’s not me. My insta and Twitter have official blue ticks.”

Make sure to be careful of fake accounts and look for the blue tick from your favourite celebrity accounts.
