"It only makes me stronger, actually. My family's too strong to let stories that may come out in the press get between us. We've got such a strong bond, nothing gets to us." The news has done little to dent the 21-year-old's confidence, or his popularity. For a long time throughout The X Factor he was regarded as the favourite to win, and, even though it was a close run thing between him and Andy Abraham (there was a 1.2% difference in the vote), everyone, including Simon Cowell and Sharon Osbourne, said he was the deserved winner. "The thing is I don't understand how I was seen as the favourite," says Shayne. "Everyone on the show is so talented. Don't get me wrong, I was flattered to be known as the favourite, but I don't let it get to me because I know it was close. There's still a big amount of pressure." For now though, Shayne is still something of a sure thing. His debut single, 'That's My Goal', stormed to the Christmas number one, knocking off the only real competition, 'The JCB Song' by Nizlopi. "It's a shame what happened to Steve" The real test of his popularity will come this year though. Last year saw X Factor winner Steve Brookstein go to number one in a blaze of glory, scoring a chart-topping album later on in May. But the album went out of the chart as quickly as it went in and Steve is already on the 'where are they now?' lists. Simon Cowell, who was looking after Steve, has said they've learnt a lot from the mistakes of last year, and fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh, who is looking after Shayne, says that the Cheshire-born singer has much more potential for longevity that Steve. Shayne himself agrees: "It's a shame what happened to Steve," he says. "But whatever happened last year, happened last year. I hope it doesn't happen to me, don't get me wrong, but if I just focus on what I'm doing, sing the right songs and just keep my feet on the ground, I don't think I'll end up like him." Shayne's certainly more of a pop star than Steve ever was. The comparisons to Justin Timberlake and Robbie Williams hold up, if only when it comes to Shayne's looks, and he was the only X Factor contestant who really looked the part from the beginning. "There's nothing about being famous that worries me" "There's nothing about being famous that worries me," he says. "All I've got to do is sing, so that's my main focus. I'm not going to let anything get in my way. I've made it this far, so if I keep focused I'll be fine. "I don't think my life is that much different, really," he adds. "The only major difference is that I've been singing in front of millions of people. But I'm still the same person I was before I entered this competition." Shayne is concentrating on what has the potential to be a stellar career in music. With Simon Cowell saying he has the potential to be the UK's biggest-selling male solo star, Shayne has come a long way from his days in the band Destiny, which he formed with school friends Tracy Murphy and Tracey Lyle. "I would never have been discovered without The X Factor," says Shayne. "I was just doing the working men's clubs and I loved doing that. That was the life for me at that time. I never expected to be noticed doing that, that's why I went for X Factor by myself." That gamble paid off, and 2006 is set to be a hugely important year in the life of Shayne Ward. "It's just something that I never thought would ever happen," he grins. "I'm just over the moon."
