Shayne Ward's Tinder love search
'Coronation Street' newbie Shayne Ward has admitted to being on dating app Tinder
Shayne Ward is on Tinder.
The 30-year-old star - who made his TV debut on 'Coronation Street' last month - first made a profile on the popular dating app as part of a bet but has now revealed he's taking his search for a potential lover seriously and says it's been "fun".
He said: "Yes I'm on Tinder, it is not a fake account.
"What it is, I was having a bet with my management that I would go on it. So initially I set it up as a joke. I thought I'd give it a go yeah ... It's quite fun."
Unlucky in love Shayne hasn't been linked to anyone since his 10-year relationship with actress Faye McKeever came to an in 2014, not long after the couple got engaged.
And despite having a multi-platinum selling album under his belt and being a former 'X Factor' winner, he hasn't bagged a date through the public dating app - yet - because women don't believe it's him.
The TV hunk told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've not been on any dates yet as I'm only two weeks into it. I have had quite a few matches on it though. People don't think it is me when I'm talking to them. They think I am catfishing them."
