Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly are back with this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! but instead of hosting the ITV series from New South Wales in Australia, the pair will be presenting from Gwrych Castle, Abergele in North Wales. One the stars who will be heading to the castle is Shane Richie, who is already the favourite to be crowned winner of this year’s series.
However, Shane might not make it to the end of the series if he comes face-to-face with one disgusting item.
Detailing his phobias before heading into the castle, he revealed: “Human faeces.
“If I see one, it is over! I am hoping the camp toilet will be enclosed.”
Shane added he also doesn’t want to have to be the one getting everyone in a good mood.
He explained: “I hope it doesn’t come to picking myself up when others are down.
“Otherwise it will be ‘here comes that pain in the a**e who doesn’t shut up!
“I am happy to help with whatever needs to be done and I am all over poached eggs – but I can’t cook otherwise!”
Shane admitted he was going to try and fit the series around his other work but everything was cancelled when coronavirus ground the entertainment industry to a halt.
The former EastEnders star divulged: “We were going to fit it around my other work projects as I was going on tour, doing a TV series and panto but that all got cancelled in March.
“And now I am literally skint! You save money for a rainy day but you don’t expect the rainy day to last six months.
“Thankfully I’ve been able to borrow money from mates, my family and the bank and my wife is now very happy we can finally pay off the credit card!”
Shane continued: “But what an honour to be asked before lockdown.

“I am so grateful and I am really looking forward to being around adults again instead of my wife and three children!”
Shane is currently the one to beat on this year’s series as before he’s even entered Gwrych Castle, he’s favourite to win.
Bookmakers Ladbrokes have priced his odds at being crowned King of the Castle at 5/2/
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “This could be the best series of I’m A Celeb yet with a whole host of personalities set to take to this year’s makeshift jungle.
“And while Shane Richie currently leads the way in the betting, there are plenty of names behind him capable of going all the way.”
However, Shane faces tough competition from Giovanna Fletcher (4/1) and AJ Pritchard (9/1).
Will he be able to follow in the footsteps of Jacqueline Jossa and take the crown?
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! begins Sunday 15 November on ITV at 9pm.
