How old is Shaun Ryder?
Born in Manchester, England, on 23 August 1962, Shaun left school at the age of 13 to work on a building site before pursuing his passion for music.
Shaun married his long-time girlfriend Joanne in 2010 after six years together.
The singer is the father of six children, though only shares daughters Lulu, eight, and Pearl, 10, with his current wife.
In an interview with The Sun in July 2017, Shaun credited his spouse and kids with helping him through his battle with heroin addiction.
He said: “All that’s a f*****g lifetime away. It’s because of my girls that I’m here. I’m not the same person.
“I don’t even think about drugs. And when I’m not working, I’m in bed by 11pm.”
What musical success has he had?
In 1980 he formed Happy Mondays alongside his brother Paul Ryder (bass) and their friends Mark Day (guitar), Paul Davis (keyboard) and Gary Whelan (drums), with Mark “Bez” Berry later joining the band as a percussionist.
The group – who helped pioneer the Madchester sound – released a slew of hits including Step On, Kinky Afro and 24 Hour Party People.
In 1995 Shaun founded group Black Grape, whose first album, It’s Great When You’re Straight… Yeah, shot to the top of the British chart.
Unfortunately the band’s follow-up album, Stupid Stupid Stupid, didn’t achieve the same success leading to their split in 1998.
On 4 August 2017, the group released Pop Voodoo, their first full album since 1997.
Shaun also enjoyed monumental chart success when he lent his vocals to Gorillaz hit Dare in 2005.

What else do I know Shaun Ryder from?
In 2010 Ryder became an unlikely national treasure when he was runner-up to Stacey Solomon on I’m A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here! where he famously braved a snake bite, describing it as “like putting your hand through sheet glass”.
The star is set to make his return to reality TV very soon after agreeing to appear on ITV’s 100 Years Younger in 21 Days.
The programme sees several celebrities attempt to reverse the ageing process through a number of shocking procedures.
Shaun will have Enema on the show, which sees fluid injected and then expelled from the rectum.

Tina Malone Attends James Bulger Charity Ball As She’s Seen For The First Time Since Being Questioned By Police For Identifying Tot’s Killer On Twitter
TINA Malone was seen out for the first time since she was the centre of a police probe, for posting a picture online of a man who she believed was child killer Jon Venables.
She has also spoken out about her recent run in with the law, and remains unapologetic.
Flynet Pictures Tina Malone attended the James Bulger Charity Ball in Liverpool
Tina – who was attending the James Bulger Charity Ball in her native Liverpool – had been accused of breaking a court injunction which bans photos of Venables or his co-accused Robert Thompson, when she tweeted a recent picture of Venables.
She has since said she did not know it was illegal to identify him online.
But opening up about the recent events to the Daily Star, the actress said: “Here I am posting a picture of a self-confessed paedo child-killer who has built a manual on how to rape a baby, yet I am the one being threatened and vilified and possibly going to prison.
“How can anyone tell me that he has been granted lifelong anonymity when he has gone on to repeat another two crimes, one even of the same ilk.
GC Images – Getty Tina has spoken out about tweeting the picture, saying the killer does not deserve a second chance
When asked about possible violent implications if his identity was revealed, Tina said: “Well you know what, do the crime, do the time.
“How many times are we going to put a child killer, or a paedo or a rapist in prison for them to come out and re-offend.
“You commit that heinous a crime, you don’t deserve a second chance.
“How do we not get rid of these people and wipe them from the earth?”
PA:Press Association Jon Venables lives under a taxpayer funded anonymity
Tina has been an ambassador for The James Bulger Memorial Trust and has said in the past that she was friends with the murdered lad’s mum Denise Fergus.
James was murdered on February 12, 1993, and both of his killers live under taxpayer funded anonymity – with publication or sharing of any details regarding his current ID and whereabouts being punishable by jail time.
Gigi Hadid ‘exchanging Flirty Text Messages’ With Lewis Hamilton Following Zayn Malik Split
SHE only split from her boyfriend Zayn Malik last week, but has Gigi Hadid already moved on?
It’s being reported the Supermodel, 22, has been exchanging “flirty messages” with Formula One ace Lewis Hamilton, 33.
Tommy Hilfiger Gigi Hadid and Lewis Hamilton have reportedly been sending each other ‘flirty messages’
The Victoria’s Secret model and the four-time world champion racing driver recently spent time together when they filmed an advert for Tommy Hilfiger.
And it now looks like they could soon be more than just friends.
According to The Mirror the pair have been texting each other, and are now starting to get flirty.
A source told the paper: “They have a big connection.”

Last week Gigi and Zayn, 25, revealed they had broken up after two years together.
Lewis, meanwhile, has previously dated a string of high profile beauties, including Nicole Scherzinger, 39, Rita Ora, 27, and Rihanna, 30.
On Friday Tommy Hilfiger released their new advert which saw the pair of them speeding around a racing track in a white Porsche.
Gigi was left screaming in terror as she hit the race track with Lewis for the designer clothing giant’s new ad.

Gigi was seen picking the Brit driver up in the Porsche before shaking hands and speeding round the track.
She hit speeds of 120mph proving she’s no slouch behind the wheel, but that paled in comparison to Lewis’s efforts.
Lewis had Gigi screaming and grabbing his arms as he raced around the track and pulled donuts.
As the car came to a halt Gigi looked thrilled with the experience, and both she and Lewis had smiles on their faces.
The new video came as ex-boyfriend Zayn looked a little down in the dumps while continuing to work on new music down in Miami.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Gigi had split from the singer earlier this week, before the former flames confirmed the end of their relationship in separate statements on Twitter.

A source close to the couple told us: “Sadly Zayn and Gigi have separated.
“They have crazy work schedules that would put pressure on any relationship.”
Zayn later wrote: “Gigi and I have an incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship and I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend.
“She has such an incredible soul. I’m grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time. We love you all.”
Shortly afterwards, Gigi posted her own statement, which read: “Breakup statements often seem impersonal because there is really no way to put into words what two people experience together over a few years… not only in the relationship, but in life in general.

Adele Puts Las Vegas Residency Plans ‘on Hold Over Worries Hot, Dry And Sandy Winds Will Ruin Voice’
ADELE’S plans for a big money residency in Las Vegas have been reportedly put on hold over fears the weather there could “ruin her voice.”
Last month The Sun reported that the singer was considering a £500,000 night residency in Sin City, however she is now worried that her already problematic vocal chords could be further damaged by the hot and sandy winds.

Adele’s vocal issues have been long documented and she was left “devastated” last summer when she had to cancel her last two Wembley shows on her tour.
In a letter to fans she said: ““To say I’m heartbroken would be an understatement.”
Last month The Sun reported that the superstar singer travelled to Sin City on a secret mission to determine whether to take on a lucrative £500,000-a-night residency in the party capital of the world – potentially seeing her rake in £2 million a week if she were to perform four nights as Celine does.
She was weighing up an offer from the casino group to take over from Elton John and visited Celine at her show at The Forum in Caesars Palace to seek advice about life in Vegas.
