X Factor star may be the newest face in the Rovers Return!


So it looks like X Factor winner Shayne Ward is going to be hanging up his mike for the forseeable future!

The That's My Goal and No You Hang Up singer, who shot to fame after winning the long-running talent show in 2005, is set to make his mark on the world of acting and where better to do it than the famous cobbled streets of Weatherfield?!

According to reports, Corrie bosses have had their sights set on Shayne for a while, with an insider revealing: "They've made moves to try get him on board and have made it clear they are open to discussions."

30-year-old Shayne hasn't confirmed that he's about to start propping up the bar in the Rovers just yet, but is apparently very interested in the proposal.

An insider source was quick to spill the deets by saying "Talks are ongoing at this stage. The bosses think Shayne would be perfect for the show."

Call us mad, but we can actually see this working!
