Shayne Ward goes topless for Body Stories

Shayne Ward, who plays Aidan Connor in Coronation Street, has gone topless to take part in the Loose Women's Our Body Stories campaign.

Shayne joines footballer-turned-pundit Robbie Savage, football legend and international pin-up David Ginola, Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli, This Morning medical expert Dr Ranj, Judge Rinder’s Robert Rinder  and boxing icon Frank Bruno who all agreed to be photographed for part two of the Loose Women body confidence campaign.

Opening up about being trolled online, Shayne says: 'If someone’s just going to comment on the fact that I’m a little bit bigger than I used to be, I’m 32, when I first joined the pop industry I was 21, so of course my body’s going to change after that amount of time. Being in the public eye can make you more conscious, without a shadow of a doubt, and that’s what’s great about this campaign.

'Hopefully this campaign will give men the confidence to talk about body confidence issues, because a lot of it is thrown away as banter; "Ah you’ve got a bit of a belly," "So have you mate." And then it’s done, but actually, once that conversation stops and someone starts to talk about something else, you’re left with that, thinking, actually I do feel like I’ve put on a bit of weight. This campaign is going to be brilliant for that.'
