Shayne Ward piles on 3 stone since joining Coronation Street

Share article:

Shayne Ward has put on three stone since joining "Coronation Street" two-and-a-half years ago.

The 33-year-old singer-turned-actor has blamed the calorific treats in the Manchester-based soap's canteen for him piling on the pounds since he first stepped foot on the cobbles in August 2015, admitting his main downfall has been feasting on fish and chips every Friday, followed by hot chocolate fudge brownies.

He said: "I will miss it when I leave but it's not done favours for the dad bod. The canteen has a really great menu but then it also has really naughty food.

"Put it this way - it's your choice, but then if you eat from the naughty menu you've got to make sure you don't put weight on, which is what happened to me really.

"Fish and chips Friday is on every single week and they have lots of sweet food like hot chocolate fudge brownie or rhubarb and apple crumble."

Shayne - who plays Aidan Connor in "Corrie" - insists he no longer wants to look "ripped to shreds" anymore, and just wants to be healthy.

The former "X Factor" winner - who has 16-month-old daughter Willow with former "Hollyoaks" star fiancée Sophie Austin - said: "I'm up and down with my weight all the time and whether you could call it a dad bod or what I don't care.

"As long as my cuddles are the cuddliest for my little girl then I don't care about my shape, as long as my health is all right.

"I don't want to be absolutely ripped to shreds anymore."

While Shayne - whose "Corrie" character is to depart in the coming weeks - insists he isn't worried about putting on a bit of timber, he has felt hurt by some comments he's received about his added weight.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "For guys, if your mate tells you you've put on a bit of weight you laugh about it and make it banter.

"But when they've left the room you're left with those comments that can cut like a knife.

"I'm glad the picture of me topless is out there now because not everyone is going to be in the most incredible nick.

"What I loved about it was the response on Twitter from guys uploading their body shapes and saying it has inspired them to be confident too."
