I’m A Celebrity 2020: AJ Pritchard addresses tension with Shane Richie in camp

AJ Pritchard has addressed the tension he had with Shane Richie on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!

The professional dancer and Sir Mo Farah were the latest campmates to be eliminated from the series leaving – Shane, Giovanna Fletcher, Vernon Kay and Jordan North – to battle it out in the final.

Shane and AJ initially had a disagreement over the washing up, but then things simmered between them once again when new camp leader Giovanna announced AJ and Jessica Plummer had replaced Shane with the cleaning.

Making light of the switch, the former soap star jokingly threw his tins on the floor after finishing his meal – and, well, the look AJ gave him said it all.

Speaking to hosts Ant and Dec after his exit, AJ spoke about why he got a bit frustrated with Shane.

‘If you’re going to do a job do it properly,’ AJ began. ‘Hygiene, yeh, come on.’

‘You were a work horse in there, you never stopped,’ Dec chipped in.

To which AJ replied: ‘I prefer to be doing something, keep myself busy because as soon as you let the dam go, the emotions flood back in and you kinda realise that home is still there.’

‘Was it frustrating at times when some people weren’t pulling their weight,’ Dec quizzed.

‘Maybe, I’m not going to lie,’ AJ laughed. ‘If you’re going to do a job do it properly it’s much easier for everybody else.’

Dec couldn’t help but push AJ a bit further by bringing up the tension between him and Shane again, as he added: ‘On the whole 99.9%, everybody got on the only strain we saw this year was between you and Shane.’

‘I think the thing is resolving problems rather than letting them fester,’ the dance pro responded.

‘Shane was really ill sometimes and we would go through different journeys each day, we’d have highs, lows and I think everybody helped everybody. There’s no negativity.’

While pointing to AJ, Ant then joked: ‘I’d much rather from his pans than from Shane’s pans.’

It comes after AJ’s brother Curtis Pritchard branded Shane ‘lazy’ for not doing his chores on camp.

Speaking his his latest podcast, Curtis was joined by their parents Debi and Adrian, where they discussed all the camp drama.

After his mum filled Curtis on what had gone on in camp regarding the chores, the former Love Island star weighed in and said: ‘So I’m going to just say it then – Shane has been lazy basically.

‘He ain’t pulling his weight around and ain’t doing his chores.’

Stepping in to defend him, Deb said: ‘Shane is Shane and he’s fine.’

‘He’s got a big personality, he’s lovely and everything, but Shane you’ve got to do your jobs, you can’t be in that place not doing them,’ Curtis added.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! airs daily at 9pm on ITV.
