X Factor winner Shayne Ward cast in Rock of Ages

X Factor winner Shayne Ward will play the role of rock renegade Stacee Jaxx in the upcoming production Rock of Ages.

He has sold more than three million records since beating off competition from Journey South and Andy Abraham to take the ITV talent show crown in 2005.

The play will also mark his West End debut when he steps on to the stage in front of those booking London theatre breaks later this year.

"I cannot wait to take to the stage for Rock of Ages. It’s an absolute thrill to have been chosen for this part and can’t wait to show a new side to my voice. West End – prepare to rock," he said.

Ward will be joined on stage by comedian and host of the Friday Night Project Justin Lee Collins, who will take on the role of Dennis Dupree.

Rock of Ages opens at the Shaftesbury theatre on Tuesday September 27th, following previews from Wednesday August 31st, for a four-and-a-half month run.
