Coronation Street star Shayne Ward found himself in a bit of an awkward situation while browsing on Tinder recently... his ex-fiancée Faye McKeever popped up!

While we love that even our famous faces aren't against getting stuck into Tinder (Hilary Duff is also a fan, FYI), we can't help but cringe slightly at Shayne's dating app revelation.

Coming across your ex? It doesn't get much more awkward than that, does it?

No one wants to think of their ex moving on with someone new, let alone coming across their former flame on a dating app. Especially as that means you'll probably pop up, or already have made an appearance, on their profile too.

And if that hand-over-eyes moment does happen, what do you do then? Do you swipe left to give them the boot (possibly for the second time if it was you who initially called it quits)? Or do you swipe right and give them your approval (risking them doing the same and having a match that is bound to mess with your head)?

Luckily for Shayne, he saw past all the over thinking and actually saw the funny side. Even publicly outing Faye for being on Tinder on Twitter!

Sharing a screenshot of her photo that popped up on his page, he tweeted: "When you see your EX on Tinder....@fayemckeever #swipeLeftorRight."

Tweeting a laughing emoji, Faye was quick to reply: "Awwwwwks!!"

She then asked Shayne whether he had swiped yet and the cheeky singer now turned actor joked: "Won't let me swipe right... ha."

Shayne and Faye previously dated for more than ten years. Their long-term relationship saw the pair get engaged, with Shayne proposing back in 2012, but they then split two years later.

Reveal caught up with Shayne six months after their break up and he insisted things between himself and Faye have remained amicable, even though they are no longer together.

He told us: "It's good. The most important thing for us is that we keep it amicable, no-one likes to split up in the first place."

And while it's now been over a year since the pair split, Shayne recently told us he is yet to meet someone new.

"I'm not looking to get into a relationship anytime soon," he admitted. "I'm just not in the right frame of mind at the moment."
