Shayne Ward has sex on a sun bed

Shayne Ward likes to have sex and tan at the same time.

The 22-year-old singer – whose new single Breathless is released next Monday (26.11.07) – confessed he once got hot and steamy on a sunbed and the experience was pleasurable in more ways than one.

Shayne said: “The most embarrassing place I have ever had sex is definitely on a sunbed. My thoughts are if you are going to get down to it, you might as well get a tan while you are doing it.”

Although Shayne – who shot to fame as the winner of British TV talent show The X Factor in 2005 – is comfortable experimenting outside the bedroom, he admits he is a prude when it comes to phone sex.

He said: “I don’t get phone sex, I mean it sounds quite perverted.”

Shayne recently revealed he was too shy to strip naked when he was dared to streak across a cricket pitch, and insisted on wearing a thong to cover his manhood.

He said: “The worst thing I did when I was drunk was streaking across a cricket pitch. It was about three-and-a-half years ago when I was in a band called Destiny.

“It was a really sunny day and loads of my friends dared me to do it. It wasn’t the full monty though – I made sure I had a thong on!”
