Description

Shayne Ward was planning to work in his local clothes shop as usual last Christmas. Instead he was selling CDs - millions of them. In fact, the artist who secured the 2005 Christmas Number One spot within a matter of hours sold more CDs and downloads than the rest of the UK Top 40 singles chart put together. Be it the combination of talent and good looks, Shayne has turned heads and stolen hearts across the country. His victory on X Factor launched his career, but there is much more to Shayne than talent show potential. Growing up in Manchester, life wasn't easy. Being the youngest son of a very large family - three brothers and three sisters - life in the Ward household was tough. But the challenges the family faced made him even more determined to succeed, espcially for his mother who sacrificed everything to support her beloved kids. SHAYNE WARD: MY STORY will provide a revealing insight into the world of one of the UK's hottest music stars. With honesty he discusses his meteoric rise to fame and how life has changed for this shop assistant from the Arndale Centre. It is a celebration of a new singing talent - Shayne is only 22 years old - a national heartthrob and a pop superstar in the making.show more
