X FACTOR winner Shayne Ward has revealed he hates being in a long distance relationship because he misses out on sex.
The Irish singer, whose parents are from Ireland, has been dating long-term girlfriend Faye McKeever for four years and longs for some nookie when heâ€™s on tour.
The 22-year-old said: â€œI’m really missing sex. Everyone loves a bit of rudey, don’t they? And I’m an amazing kisserâ€.
Shayne shot to fame after winning The X Factor in 2005 and is about to release his new single If Thatâ€™s OK With You with a brand new sound.
The starâ€™s manager, music mogul Louis Walsh canâ€™t wait for fans to hear Shayneâ€™s new American vibe.
He said: â€œShayne, I think, has got the most amazing album. Itâ€™s all finished, itâ€™s totally different from anything heâ€™s ever done â€“ well, the first album. Itâ€™s somewhere between Justin Timberlake and, kind of, Usherâ€.
The heartthrob has been brushing up on his dance moves for his sexy new video, shot in sunny Santa Monica.
â€œIt’s nice to be called a sex symbolâ€, he said.
â€œI guess it boosts my confidence to be told I’m a good-looking guyâ€.
