Corrie star left 'red faced' after sex tape appears online
Shayne Ward is reported to be deeply embarrassed after footage allegedly showing him pleasuring himself appeared online.
The Sun reports that the former X Factor winner is feeling humiliated by the leak.
Both stills and moving images from the video have been posted on social media.
While Ward has yet to officially comment on the alleged leak the paper quotes a source who says: “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.”
In August Ward and his girlfriend Sophie Austin announced they are expecting their first child together after a whirlwind romance.
Sophie and Shayne met through mutual friends and started dating earlier this year, several months after she split from husband Graeme Rooney, who she married in July 2015.
And Shayne split from his fiancée Faye McKeever in 2014, after a 10-year romance.
