Shayne Ward 'dropped by label'

Shayne Ward and Syco have parted ways, according to reports

Shayne Ward has reportedly been dropped by Simon Cowell's record label.

The singer - who won the X Factor in 2005 - failed to crack the top 10 when he released his third album Obsession last November.

The Sun reports that the 26-year-old has now become the fourth male winner of the ITV show to be axed by Simon's label Syco.

A Syco spokesman told the newspaper: "After five very successful years and an international career which saw him sell over 3.2 million records, Shayne's contract has come to an end."

Shayne performed the first single from Obsession, Gotta Be Somebody, live on X Factor in November. The single made it to number 12 in the charts.
