Shayne Ward reveals he won Aidan Connor role by mistake

Shayne Ward, who played Coronation Street's Aidan Connor, was interviewed on TV this week and revealed that he got the role of Aidan on Corrie by mistake.

Shayne explained that fans online started congratulating him on getting the role of Callum Logan in Corrie - when it was in fact actor Sean Ward who had landed the part. He said: "A lot of people were messaging me on social media saying, ''Congratulations on getting the role of Callum.''

'I thought, ''I've got nothing to do with the show.'' Then I clicked on that Callum's real name was Sean Ward.

'Because of that and the little bit of hype, Coronation Street contacted my management and said, ''We would like Shayne to come in for an audition, how would he feel?''

So there you go!
