Coronation Street star Shayne Ward has admitted to being ‘hugely embarrassed’ after a video of him pleasuring himself leaked online.
The video’s believed to have been released by a Twitter account which exposes celebrity sex tapes online. Despite the account being suspended the clip went viral and has been copied and shared thousands of times.
Speaking to The Sun a source explained that the video was from when Shayne was on tour with War of the Worlds and is years old.
The source added:
He’s so embarrassed this has happened. The conversation between him and the supposed woman have left him hugely red faced. He can’t believe anyone would do this.
Shayne believed he was in a private chat when the video was filmed and only realised he’d been catfished when the video was released today.
It’s not known who or when the video was actually recorded but it’s alleged that a Twitter account, which has since been deleted, was offering copies of the video for sale.
Despite this embarrassing invasion into Shayne’s privacy he’s got a lot to look forward to. Shayne announced just last week that he and his girlfriend, the actress Sophie Austin, are expecting their first baby.
Shayne’s also won a raft of awards for his portrayal of Aiden Connor in the ITV soap Coronation Street.
