The former ‘X Factor’ champ begun filming earlier this year, and he’s now admitted that his part is bigger than he expected.
Shayne, who will play Kym Marsh’s on-screen cousin Aidan, has opened up about his part, revealing that his first scenes will air this summer.
He told the Manchester Evening News: "I am looking forward to August when my first scene is aired.
"I'm going to focus on this role and bring Aidan to life."
The singer-turned-soap star added that he had no idea how huge his job would be, stating: "I didn't realise how large this role was, storyline-wise. There is a lot going on without a doubt.
"I am going to work hard, especially with the role I have been given and the storylines, which are much bigger than I expected."
Shayne’s not the only popstar heading for t’cobbles, and Sarah Harding has also filmed a guest appearance on the soap.
Her character is set to arrive on the arm of Tracy Barlow’s ex-husband Robert Preston, but by the looks of things, their relationship isn’t going too well…
