X Factor 2012: Shayne Ward blasts "pathetic" new promo for leaving him out!

It seems that The X Factor 2012 promo hasn't won over everyone, with former winner Shayne Ward branding it "pathetic".

The one minute features various stars of the show, including One Direction, Little Mix, Alexandra Burke, JLS, Olly Murs and Leona Lewis.

But only three of the acts actually won the show, with One Direction not even the runners up of their series.

The choice of stars has caused a bit of controversy, with Shayne writing on Twitter today: "Just seen the new Xfactor promo video."

He added: "Yet again it's like im being erased slowly from their history.Pathetic really Would love to know why? [sic]"

Shayne, who won the show in 2005, was dropped by Simon Cowell's Syco label in 2011 after three albums.

But that's not to say that Shayne hasn't been a success, currently performing in West End musical Rock of Ages in London.

Fans of Joe McElderry have also hit out at the ad leaving the Geordie singer, who beat Olly in 2009, out of the promo clip.
