Shayne Ward Sex Tape: ‘Coronation Street’ Star ‘Embarrassed’ As Video Leaks Online

The video has reportedly been circulated on social media.

Shayne Ward is the latest star at the centre of a sex tape scandal, following the leak of a clip of him performing a sex act on himself, according to reports.

A video - which is reportedly “years old” and filmed when Shayne was single - has circulated on social media, and the ‘Coronation Street’ actor is yet to address the matter.

According to The Sun, the clip was not filmed recently and a source is quoted as telling the paper: “This video is years old. Shayne was single at the time and it happened when he was on tour with ‘War of the Worlds’.

“He’s so embarrassed this has happened. The conversation between him and the supposed woman have left him hugely red faced.

“He can’t believe anyone would do this.

“He thought it was a private chat and a one-off and only realised he had been catfished after the video emerged today.”

A representative for Shayne declined to comment on the matter when contacted by The Huffington Post UK. 

Shayne has come a long way since finding fame on ‘The X Factor’, and is now well known to TV fans as Corrie’s Aidan Connor.

Since signing up to star in the soap, Shayne has had a number of big storylines and won the Most Popular Newcomer accolade at the 2016 National Television Awards.

He’s also in a relationship with ‘Hollyoaks’ actress Sophie Austen, and the couple’s first child will be born next year.
