Shane Richie’s son has poked fun at his dad for being voted to do the next I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! trial while also hitting out at trolls ‘making him look like the devil’.

Shane Richie Jr took to Twitter to celebrate after Ant and Dec revealed the former EastEnders star will be taking on Cruel Jewels in tonight’s episode, but also noted how the actor was being targetted by cruel keyboard warriors.

Shane came under fire last night after clashing with AJ Pritchard over camp duties. Former Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ asked Shane if he could wash up the pans from dinner, however, Shane said he couldn’t until someone had boiled the water.

He and Vernon Kay also angered viewers with their comments about Jordan North and Jessica Plummer being scared during trials.

Defending his dad’s behaviour, Shane Jr penned: ‘Yes that’s right folks, my dads human and isn’t a cheeky chappy 24/7.

‘Christ some of the comments on here making him looking like the devil sad b*stards #ImACeleb.’ (sic)

Shane Jr seemed elated to see that his dad had been voted for the upcoming trial though, and enthused: ‘Finally a hard trial #ImACeleb means by dads Gonna be an even moodier bastard tomorrow morning.’ (sic)



Tensions ran high during Monday’s episode, with the celebrities appearing to irk each other over their respective duties.

Shane seemed annoyed by AJ’s reminder to wash up, hitting back: ‘I left them to soak last night, all ready to be cleaned but I need hot water.

‘But you’ve left them in the pan that does the hot water. The big pan that we put the hot water in,’ AJ replied.

Explaining his side further in the Telegraph, Shane told the cameras: ‘I needed water and someone’s gotta fetch the water and someone’s gotta heat the water and unless I’m barking order I didn’t want to wash dirty plates and pans in cold water.’

Is it only a matter of time before arguments start?

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9.15pm on ITV.
