Shane Richie’s son, Shane Nolan, has jumped to the I’m A Celebrity star’s defence after he was labelled 'Shane B****y' by viewers for gossiping about Jess Plummer.
It all started when the Eastenders actor was accused of ‘gossiping’ about Jessica Plummer’s performance in Monday night’s trial.
Viewers said they were ‘shocked’ to see the 56-year-old ‘showing his true colours’ by making the ‘snidey comments’.
However, his son, Shane, 31, has hit back on Twitter, insisting his dad can’t be expected to be a ‘cheeky Chappy 24/7’.
He wrote: “Yes that’s right folks, my dad’s human and isn’t a cheeky Chappy 24/7.
“Christ some of the comments on here making him looking like the devil [laughing emoji] sad b******s #ImACeleb.”
Shane caused a stir during a conversation which was aired on Monday night between himself and Vernon Kay.
The actor said: "I say this every year I watch it.
“Why would you come and do it? You know what’s going to happen."
He later added: "Yeah tomorrow night, 100 per cent Jess."
One viewer tweeted: “Shane Richie? More like Shane B****y. Amirite?”
Another added: “Anyone else going off Shane Richie after watching him tonight?”
