Shayne Ward

Biography

Shayne Ward at the age of 28 has enjoyed a stellar career. Since winning the UK X Factor in 2005 Shayne has released three albums, played London's O2 Arena, sold over 3 million albums, achieved a staggering 14 Platinum discs and had number one albums in 9 countries.

Manchester born and bred, Shayne's family hails from Ireland, a connection he is fiercely proud of. A perfectionist when it comes to his performing, he is most at home on the stage, where his infectious vocals and incredible presence come alive. For him nothing is better than being in front of a live audience.

Shayne released his third album, Obsession, in November 2010 and followed that up with a major UK tour the following year. He's also performed at the Miss World Final in China to an estimated TV audience of over 2 Billion and headlined the Boston Pride Festival in America.

The complete entertainer, with strengths in song, dance and performance, Shayne starred in the West End hit musical Rock of Ages, for the shows first year, playing the role of Stacee Jaxx (as played by Tom Cruise in the movie).

Shayne has recently taken on the challenge to learn to skate and overcome his fear of the ice, and is currently appearing in ITV's Dancing on Ice, before he returns to the studio to record his 4th album.
