Shortcodes & upfront & contact form 7

I often use shortcodes when building sites.

But having just added a contact form on and when I add the short code in a text element
[contact-form-7 id="559" title="Get in touch"]

I simply get the text as displayed above - no form .

I've searched the forum and other folk use contact from 7 with no problem so slightly confused as to why my shortcode is not working when added to a text element in upfront??

Is there a particular add on or similar to be installed before shortcodes can be used in upfront?

I have also tried to add this to a code element again with no luck.
