Shayne Ward has said he's still waiting to find out whether he's landed a part in Coronation Street.

The former X Factor winner auditioned for a role in the ITV soap last month and is now on tenterhooks as he waits to find out whether he was successful.

Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, he said: "I went for a casting and it's the waiting game at the minute. Fingers crossed! I have my management waiting by the phone to see if it's good news or not.

"I would love to be on the show. I'm a massive fan. And my mum would love it. She knows all the history of the show so it would be crazy!"

Gaby Roslin, who is standing in for Lorraine Kelly on the morning show, told Shayne she'd tried to find out from Corrie if he was successful but they wouldn't tell her!

Shayne laughed, replying: "Everything is private! But I would absolutely love it. I can't imagine myself being on the cobbles but if it ever happened it would be so cool!"

Meanwhile, Shayne is busy promoting his new album Closer and its lead single 'My Heart Would Take You Back'.
