Shane Richie, 56, entertained I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020 fans last night with his funny antics, including comically tumbling out of a hammock inside Gwrych Castle. However, Linda Robson, 62, has admitted she was less than impressed by the former EastEnders actor’s first appearance on the ITV show and said she found him “annoying” while presenting Loose Women today.

“I think there’s a couple of people that are gonna be a little bit annoying, like Shane Richie,” she said.

“I mean, he’s not a comedian but he’s just trying to be.

“He’s just being a little bit annoying, he’s been voted for the first trial so a lot of people are seeing that.”

She added: “It just takes you a little while to get used to the campmates.”

After hearing Linda’s comments, Shane’s son Shane Nolan, who he shares with his ex-wife Coleen Nolan, blasted the Birds of a Feather actress on Twitter.

He pointed out in view of his 38,000 followers that his dad is in fact a comedian, alongside his acting and singing career.

Shane wrote while sharing an article about Linda’s criticism of the I’m A Celebrity contestant: “Has she really just said he’s not a comedian? Wow [crying with laughter emoji].

“She hasn’t got a clue haha.”

 

Shane then explained that although he “loves” Linda, who works on Loose Women with his mum Coleen, her claims that his dad is “not a comic” are “hysterical”.

When a fan commented: “But apart from birds of a feather who is she? X,” Shane replied, “I love Linda, my dad’s not everyone’s cup of tea but to say he’s not a comic is hysterical”.

Another Twitter user replied: “He’s the greatest.”

To which Shane wrote back: “Not according to Linda. Not even a comic.”

During his time in camp, Shane’s Instagram account has been taken over by his wife Christine and other family members.

Last night, the account revealed their “special” way of communicating via the TV show.

“Shane’s special signal to the children, telling them he loves them,” the post read, in view of the actor’s 36,900 followers.

It was signed off with the affectionate and humorous hashtags: “#love #daddy #husband #trials #hecanbequitefunnysometimes.”

The accompanying picture showed Shane in camp with his hand across his face and fingers either side of his nose, light-heartedly appearing to give two fingers.

The television star is dad to Mackenzie, 14, Lolita, 12, and Romani-Skye, nine, and Shane Jr, 31, and Jake, 28, from his first marriage to Coleen.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
