Former Coronation Street actor Shayne Ward has revealed he’s lost over a stone in new topless photos.
The star, who played Aidan Connor in the ITV soap, shared the pictures to Instagram on Thursday as he showed off the results from a 21-week training programme.
Shayne, 35, revealed his incredibly toned six-pack after enlisting the help of Ultimate Performance personal training.
He captioned the post: “I’m so happy to share with you the results of my training with @up_north_pt for 21 weeks.
“I have lost 3 1/2 stone in total and feel amazing. Thank you UP For everything.”
I’m happy to not be in that place I was 21 weeks ago.
Shayne added in a statement: “I’m happy to not be in that place I was 21 weeks ago. I was sluggish, I was stressed and I didn’t really want to do anything.
“When I started training, I wasn’t in the greatest place – I was trying to balance everything on my shoulders in my personal and professional life. I didn’t enjoy ‘me’.
“It’s been 21 weeks and I’m so far removed from that now. I’m so grateful for what U.P Fitness has offered me. It gives you a better focus – you can enjoy fitness.
“It doesn’t just mean getting bulging biceps or a bigger chest, it means you can be a lot healthier in body and mind.
“My confidence is through the roof. People say ‘you look happier’, ‘your confidence is so much better’. I feel good, I feel fresh, I’m not quite 21 anymore, but I’m feeling really good.”
Shayne has gone down from 29 per cent to 16 per cent body fat over the 21-week programme.
Fans gushed over Shayne’s hot new bod with one person commenting: “WOW Shane looking great.”
Another wrote: “Amazing results, great work,” while a third said: “I bet the Mrs is pretty happy too.”
Shayne left Coronation Street last year after his character Aidan took his own life in a devastating storyline.
The star previously said being on the soap didn’t do any favours for his waistline.
He told The Sun last year: “I will miss it when I leave but it’s not done favours for the dad bod. The canteen has a really great menu but then it also has really naughty food.
“Put it this way — it’s your choice, but then if you eat from the naughty menu you’ve got to make sure you don’t put weight on, which is what happened to me really.”
