We got the chance for a little private one-on-one with Shayne Ward and wanted you to provide the subject matter for our little chat. Here’s what you came up with and what he had to say about it…
You are so hot. Can we not have some more daring pictures like you in skimpy underwear? Would you be up for that? Dennis the Absolute Menace
I’ve been going to the gym recently and I didn’t have to do topless shots but I just wanted to because I felt comfortable. But I’d always do tasteful, not sleazy photoshoots. But if I feel comfortable with myself then, yeah, why not?
Do you think Simon Cowell is gay? You’ve been around him a lot, have you ever thought, ‘Oh, hello!’? Bernard
No! He has a fantastic girlfriend Terri. She’s beautiful. Terri is one of the nicest girls I’ve met.
Do you get fed up with being compared to Justin Timberlake? Eric
I think it’s a great thing. I’d rather be compared to Justin than to someone who’s not credible but I think it’s just down to my hair and that, just physical appearance.
Is X Factor just a fix? Jenny from the Bloc
Is it heck! (That means ‘no’, foreign readers) The X Factor is as real as you get.
Was it a hard decision to go into X Factor knowing that all that stuff about your family (the fact that his father had raped an old woman, among other things) was going to hit the papers? Diana, late princess of Wales
No, but you need to be prepared. As soon as you put your face in front of the camera you need to know that you’ll be in the public eye. It hasn’t bothered me and it hasn’t stopped me enjoying myself. At the end of the day, me and my family have got nothing to hide and they’ve got nothing to worry about.
Quite recently, in a lot of photos, you’ve been seen wearing rosary beads. Were these a gift bought for you that hold a special meaning or is it that you’re a good Catholic boy? Wendy
I am religious, yeah, and wear rosary beads. I don’t wear them for fashion. I only wear them if something’s happened in my family. I wear them for comfort. But I am religious and proud of my religion. As a kid I went to school more or less every Sunday.
Are you a bum or a boobs fan? Nikki
Tits. Massive. A handful is enough. I love it. Love it. Jordan is too much, I’m more into Keeley. She’s nice. I’d be happy with them. I’m building a picture now.
What is the most listened-to song on your iPod? Jules
As sad as it sounds, it’s one of the songs from my new album. It’s one of those songs that I can’t wait for everyone to hear. Seriously, I absolutely love it.
The double A-side single ‘No U Hang Up/If That’s OK with You’ is out on Monday. Shayne can be seen live in the flesh on Saturday at London’s G-A-Y at The Astoria.
