Shane’s family has 40 horses. They all have the first name –Carlton- after your family eatery. Shane’s favorite is called Carlton Flight. Shane still suffers from a knee injury which he got three years past playing rugby which makes every dance routine rather distressing but he never complains about it. Shane consistently used to snog his girlfriend’s partners and would frequently go out with a girl just because of this. When Shane was little, he possessed a soft toy cat. Shane loved it to bits, but he used to conceal it from his partners when they came round to his house because he believed it was actually embarrassing to possess. Shane never goes to bed without saying his prayers and he never actually relaxes on his vacations as he enjoys to be constantly up and around doing something.
