I’m A Celebrity 2020: Shane Richie is booted from the castle

Shane Richie has been booted from Gwrych Castle – leaving Vernon Kay, Giovanna Fletcher, and Jordan North as this year’s three I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! finalists.

The trio are now in the running to be the first ever King or Queen of the castle, after the series moved to Wales amid the COVID-19 crisis.

Shane was voted off by the public on Thursday night, 24 hours before the grand finale on Friday.

But the ex-EastEnders actor felt happy with how far he’d come, pleased to make it to the infamous Celebrity Cyclone.

He was seen taking part in it with the other three in the episode, ahead of his eviction. 

Shane said: ‘It’s mixed emotions. You know, getting so far… We were all really glad to do the Celebrity Cyclone last night, being in the fantastic four.

‘We felt we’d achieved… I think whenever anyone comes on this show, they feel the final is the Cyclone, and anything after that is a bonus.’

And sharing his tips for any celebrities that might want to take on the challenge of the series next year, Shane said the most important thing is making sure you ’embrace’ camp life.

He said: ‘Anyone who comes on this show next year, you’ve got to embrace it. You can’t be… it’s no good trying to be on your own somewhere. You’ve got to be an open book.

‘You can’t fake it here, maybe for a couple of days, but after that you can’t.’

He also named author and podcast host Giovanna as the campmate he’d most like to see win the series.

He admitted: ‘I’d love to see Mamma Gi win. She’s been so strong all the way through. I think Jordan’s a strong contender… listen, it could be anyone, couldn’t it? But Mamma Gi has been there from the beginning and I adore her.’

Vernon Kay and Jordan North will be on Santa’s naughty list following their escapades on Thursday’s I’m A Celebrity. 

The rebellious presenter, 46, and his BBC Radio 1 comrade, 30, sought revenge on Kiosk Cledwyn by stealing his bell after failing the Castle Coin challenge.

The pair, who were dressed as elves, had to translate phone orders to source the right phones on the shelves and then wrap the toys up to gain gold which could be exchanged for sweet treats.

If it was wrong, it would get returned.

Racing through the challenge, Jordan said to a delighted Vernon: ‘I don’t think I’m scared of Christmas, one thing I’m not scared of.’

‘We were absolutely nailing it.’

Vernon replied: ‘We’re the best wrappers since… Eminem and Dr Dre got together.’

Once completed, the duo sang Jingle Bells as they made their way to see Kiosk Cledwyn for the final with a sack full of gold in their hands.

They were offered either chocolate orange or mince pies as a treat if the camp got the correct answer to Cledwyn’s question.

Feeling in the Christmas spirit, Vernon and Jordan said they wanted to go for mince pies. 

Back at camp, the celebrities were asked what percentage of Brits have said they would try and sneak a peek at their Christmas presents. 

They were given the options 14% or 22% and chose the latter, prompting Cledwyn to shut up shop.
