Shayne Ward honoured to sing at Corrie co-star's wedding

Shayne Ward has spoken of his honour of having been asked to sing at Coronation Street co-star Catherine Tyldesley's wedding.

Shayne Ward was "honoured" to sing at Coronation Street co-star Catherine Tyldesley's wedding.

The 31-year-old won the 2005 series of The X Factor but has gone on to find success playing Aidan Connor in the ITV soap. Catherine stars as his on-screen love interest Eva Price, and could think of no-one she would rather have serenade her on her wedding day.

The 32-year-old married Tom Pitfield in Cheshire on 21 May (16), and Shayne opted to perform U.S. singer Bob Carlisle's hit Butterfly Kisses for the ceremony.

“Cath asked me to sing it for her only a few weeks ago. I’m so happy and honoured I was able to do it for her,” Shayne told Hello magazine.

Catherine, who has a 14-month-old son Alfie with Tom, looked stunning in a Philip Armstrong wedding gown for her nuptials, before changing into a Mark Melia halter neck gown after the ceremony.

Speaking about her fairytale day, Catherine told the publication: "It was my dream come true. I had been looking forward to this moment for so long. Tom and I are very traditional and it was important for us to show our deep commitment to each other.

"The night before I was so excited that I could hardly sleep for thinking about it, and when I walked in, the sight before me blew me away.

"It was picture perfect. There were scented candles and beautiful flowers - and most importantly of all, there was Tom."

Tom was equally complimentary about his new wife, admitting he was blown away by how she looked in her dress.

"She looked so beautiful. This lady changed my life the moment she walked into it,” Tom said. "She is the most caring and beautiful woman I’ve ever met."

Other Coronation Street stars among the guests at the wedding included Jane Danson, Samia Ghadie and Brooke Vincent.
