Viewers of I'm A Celebrity watched as Shane, 56, shared stories from his varied showbiz life on Tuesday night's episode of the ITV show.

He went on to raise a few eyebrows as he recalled finding himself in a go-kart race with Cruise and Kidman in the 90s, when the pair were a couple and the talk of Hollywood.

Shane told his campmates: "When I was in the West End doing Boogie Nights in 1999, Nicole Kidman and Tom were filming Eyes Wide Shut.



"And there was a big indoor go-karting track near the BBC.

"I got a phone call from Charlie who used to run it and he said come along on your own and I was going through a real public divorce at the time, I was being followed by the press..

"So I turned up and went in and he said sit down, I've got to tell you Tom and Nicole are here… he said he wants to know if he can race against you because you love go-karting."

Fully backing his dad's story, Shane Jr, 31, uploaded the scorecard from the night in question to social media and added the words: "For anyone thinking my dad was talking b******s".

But he went on to mention: "However he got beat off Nicole Kidman".

The proof shows, Cruise coming first in the race, followed closely by Kidman, before Shane Snr is listed in fifth place.


But Shane went on to explain to his castle campers, that he'd race with the Mission Impossible star until "5 in the morning" and that Cruise "was a speed freak. He didn't care about danger."

Shane Jr is the former soap star's son with Loose Women panellist Coleen Nolan.
