I'm A Celebrity's Shane Richie's son hits back at Curtis Pritchard and slams AJ after his feud with EastEnders star dad

SHANE Richie's son has hit back at AJ Pritchard and his brother Curtis following his feud with his dad on I'm A Celebrity.

It comes after AJ made one final dig at the EastEnders star as he was eliminated from the ITV show last night.

AJ and Shane previously got into a tiff over the actor's efforts at washing up.

During his post-eviction interview with hosts Ant and Dec, the dancer tried to explain why he struggled more than others.

AJ said: "Probably because I'm getting all the wood, the water… I was doing a lot more."

Commenting on Shane's dirty pans, he added: "Oh my God that took all the day and I didn't even get through them all."

His remarks didn't go unnoticed by Shane's son, who was quick to defend his famous dad on Twitter.

Ahead of AJ's eviction, Shane Jr revealed that he was bugged by the professional dancer – and didn't know why.

The 31-year-old tweeted: "I can’t help it, AJ winds me up. He does. I don’t really know why either #ImACeleb."

He later added: "Can I just say I don’t agree with some of the comments said about AJ tonight, I’m not actually that bothered. He seems sound but just not my cup of tea and I’m sure he wud feel the same. Now move on folks."

Shane Jr also insisted he wasn't "a**ed" after AJ's younger brother called his dad "lazy".

Speaking on his family's podcast, Curtis previously fumed: "If you’re going to do a job do it properly."

The former Love Island star added: "So I’m going to just say it then, Shane has been lazy basically. He ain’t pulling his weight around and ain’t doing his chores."

Shane Jr has been busy supporting his dad throughout his time on the ITV reality series.

Earlier this week, the lad taunted his mum Coleen Nolan after she gushed about how "brilliant" her ex-husband was doing on the show.

Coleen and Shane Jr were talking about the EastEnders legend's performance in the castle on his post-show Instagram Live feed, where explosive comments have practically become the norm.

She told her son: "Can I say how proud I am of your dad? I think he's brilliant, I really do."

The lad then bluntly replied that Shane would never take her back – at which Coleen looked briefly shocked.
