Shayne Ward's girlfriend 'furious' over phone bill
Shayne Ward’s girlfriend has reacted "furiously" to an £850 phone bill the X Factor star racked up.

Faye McKeever, who has been dating the 22-year-old singer for three years, was particularly upset to discover that several of the calls took place late at night and were up to three hours long.

A friend of the couple said: "Faye was absolutely furious because there were two numbers in particular which kept appearing and she discovered they were dancers from Shayne's last video shoot, so she made it very clear to Shayne that she was not happy.”

Earlier this month Ward flew several LA dancers, whom he met while shooting the video for his new single ‘If That’s OK With You’, to the UK to accompany him on a promotional tour.

The friend added: "Faye heard a few weeks ago that a couple of the dancers had been really keen on Shayne and she wasn't too happy they had even swapped numbers. To find out at the weekend that he'd spent hours on the phone to them, like any girlfriend, well, she wasn't impressed to say the least.

"Shayne explained to Faye there was nothing to worry about. She didn't believe a word he had to say at first, but he managed to calm her down. He must have come up with a pretty good explanation for it because some of the calls were two or three hours long and took place in the early hours of the morning!"

However, a spokesperson for Ward insisted that the relationship is not in jeopardy, telling DS: "Shayne and Faye are still very much together. Shayne frequently needs to speak to Los Angeles-based songwriters and producers for his work as well as to his friends over there. Because of the time difference some phone calls will take place late at night."
