Shayne Ward says sorry after NTAs tweet was 'misconstrued'

Share article:

Shayne Ward has apologised after speaking out over his National Television Awards snub.

The former "Coronation Street" star admitted he felt "really hurt" and was "lost for words" after he failed to make the nominations longlist in the Best Serial Drama Performance category after the NTAs nods were announced yesterday (16.10.18) - but the 34-year-old star claims his tweet has been "misconstrued" by some.

Shayne - who also celebrated his birthday yesterday - wrote a statement saying: "I'm sorry if my tweet was misconstrued by some people.

It really wasn't about me winning an award and being selfish or having an ego.

That ain't me.

I really thought it was an important issue that I wanted to draw attention too again.

So I'm sorry again. Love to you all. x (sic)"

Shayne was disappointed to miss out on a nod for his role as Aidan Connor following a hard-hitting storyline which saw his character take his own life, and his latest message claims he intended to "draw attention" to the "important issue" of male suicide with his original NTAs reaction.

In a tweet last night, which now appears to have been deleted, he wrote: "This was the one I worked hard for.

It's always a blessing to be put forward for a nomination And Im always humbled. But to have not even been considered for Best Serial Drama Performance for Aidan's suicide has really hurt me.

"No nod for @RichardHawley1 too Lost for words. (sic)"

He also "liked" some tweets from fans who praised his performance, including one who insisted he deserved some recognition for his portrayal of the storyline.

One fan wrote: "you defo should be at least nominated. My family has lost several members due to suicide. You deserve recognition for making it less taboo to discuss #rewardWardwithNTAaward (sic)"

Another supporter tweeted: "The problem with this whole @shayneTward not being nominated for an NTA for his portrayal of Aidan just shows, to me-a person who battles suicidal thoughts frequently (like today)- that everyone forgets eventually. You'll always be an after thought. People care, only at the time. (sic)"

Shayne also shared his congratulations to his former "Corrie" co-stars who were nominated for the Serial Drama Performance accolade.

He wrote: "Now On a serious note tho

Congratulations to all nominated @itvcorrie @OfficialNTAs

I truly hope you clear up on the night.

Fully deserved.

I love and miss you all.

Goodluck x (sic)"

Corrie's Beverley Callard (Liz McDonald), Joe Duttine (Tim Metcalfe), Jack P. Shepherd (David Platt), Sally Dynevor (Sally Metcalfe), Sally Ann Mathews (Jenny Connor), and Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald) are all up for the prize, and Alexandra Mardell (Emma Brooker) has been nominated in the Best Newcomer category.
