Following a summer that’s already seen Orlando Bloom, Justin Bieber and Lewis Bloor give a full-frontal insight into their lives, Coronation Street star and former X Factor winner Shayne Ward has become the latest celebrity to have one of their more personal moments leaked to the world.
The 32-year-old former Attitude cover star is said to have been left “embarrassed” by the publication of an explicit solo video, which is believed to have been secretly recorded during a private online chat with the singer and actor.
Speaking to The Sun about the leaked footage, which is currently doing the rounds online: “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.”
The explicit footage of Ward was leaked from a Twitter account known as CelebrityBusted, who claim that the video was hacked from their Dropbox account. The account was also responsible for the recent publication of an X-rated video of fellow X Factor star Sam Callahan, who said over the weekend he would “live and learn” following the incident.
CelebrityBusted claims that legal proceedings are now underway over the leak of both tapes.
Ward, who joined the cast of Coronation Street as Aidan Conner last summer, previously posed in the nude for Attitude’s Naked Issue back in early 2013. Check out some of the shoot’s highlights below:
