Dancing On Ice's Shayne Ward: I'm not bothered about wearing sequins

Former X Factor winner Shayne Ward is happy to cover himself in fake tan and sequins when he appears on Dancing On Ice!

Shayne, 28, isn't fussed about the sparkly and often revealing costumes the ITV1 show is famed for, because the clothes he had to wear in the West End's Rock Of Ages were daring too.

"Bring it on," he laughs. "I wore leather for a year in Rock Of Ages, so I am not bothered about the clothes!"

Shayne proposed to his long-term girlfriend Faye McKeever in September, but he admits she is slightly concerned about him getting injured on the show.

He says: "She loves the fact that I am doing it but she does also say 'oh my God but what about the blades?!'

"The closer we get to the first live show, I will bring her down to the rink to watch me."

Shayne, who is partnered on DOI with Maria Filippov, has surprised himself at how well he can stand up in his skates.

But he thinks he knows why he's so good: "I don't know if it's a fluke or whether it's because I had three sisters who all used to put heels on me," he adds.

"They used to dress me up. It definitely wasn't by choice!"
