Shayne gets ready to rock on West End

Past X Factor winner Shayne Ward has landed a role in a West End musical.

The singer, who won in 2005, and topped the charts with That's My Goal -- will appear in Rock Of Ages.

The production, made of 80s rock anthems and already a hit in the US, is being turned into a movie starring Catherine Zeta Jones, Tom Cruise, Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin.

Ward will play Stacee Jaxx, a "disillusioned rock bad boy", portrayed by Cruise in the film version.

Previews for the show -- also featuring Justin Lee Collins -- begin in late August.
