Corrie’s Shayne Ward pursued for HUGE show

This could change his career forever.

Shayne Ward is apparently being lined up for a huge show after his Coronation Street exit.

A source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Shayne has built up a huge and loyal fan base at Corrie and his exit storyline has been talked about up and down the country.

“But behind the scenes he’s also considered one of the nicest men in soap with a quirky sense of humour that would work well in the jungle camp.”

Soon Aidan’s will is found with a shocking secret inside it for the Connor family – he’s left Underworld to Alya Nazir.

The struggling businessman made his will when he owned just a small portion of the factory, meaning Alya was set to inherit a minority share of the business they ran together.

But when Carla invested into getting Underworld back up and running, she ended up signing over her majority share to Aidan after he donated a kidney to her.

And now that means Alya will soon have to face the Connor family in court when they take legal action over the will.
