  • Quotes

    • Shayne: It's nice to be called a sex symbol. I guess it boosts my confidence to be told I'm a good-looking guy. But Botox is very big here in LA so maybe I'll have a go at that.

    • Shayne: (After winning the X Factor) The reason I'm doing all of this is for my mum. She deserves the best, she's brought up seven kids, she can relax now and not be stressed out every Saturday night with whether I'm going or not. She can just relax and think, 'My son's done it for me.'

    • Shayne: (About his second album) I'd rather give people a taste of my personality instead of banging on about 'my art' or 'my creation'. I listen to music for fun so why wouldn't I make it for the same reason?

    • Shayne: There's nothing about being famous that worries me. All I've got to do is sing, so that's my main focus.

    • Shayne: (About winning the X Factor) It's not all about the money. Definitely not. The reason I entered this competition was because I love singing, that's all I wanted to do. It's not all about the money or the fame for me.

    • Shayne: (About Simon Cowell) He's like Marmite - you either love it or you don't. I love it.

    • Shayne: I'm going to be around for a long time and I don't think it's a vain thing to say. I have what it takes and the record company knows that.

    • Shayne: I can't believe I've done it! I've actually got my record contract - this is unreal!
