From One Direction to Leona Lewis, the X Factor has been the launch pad for some of music's biggest stars but as the show previewed a new promo for the show one former contestant was left a little disgruntled.
The X Factor's 2005 champion Shayne Ward has blasted the show that gave him his five minutes of fame, after producers left him out of the new promo.
A new series of adverts, subtitled 'Whose Time Is Now', for the next series of ITV's hit show features the success stories of the past eight years. One Direction, Olly Murs, Leona Lewis and last year's champions Little Mix all made an appearance.
Mysteriously though, Shayne has been left out of the glossy set of ads.
Following the snub, Shayne took this his Twitter page to get things of his chest: "Just seen the new Xfactor promo video. Yet again it's like im being erased slowly from their history.Pathetic really Would love to know why?"
After receiving supportive messages from his 170,000 followers, Shayne later tweeted: "Thank you to everyone who tweeted me nice messages.It just would've been nice to have been acknowledged. It was a big part of my life."
Well Shayne to heal your broken heart we've put together a gallery of all your former X Factor pals to see where they are now.
