I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Of Here! 2020 contestant AJ Pritchard, 26, recently took a swipe at Shane Richie, 56, after claiming he didn’t do the washing up properly. In the castle’s Telegraph, the ex Strictly Come Dancing star said: “If you’re going to do it, do the job properly.” He later confronted the EastEnders star about putting all the pots and pans in the big bucket, where he had to do the hot water.

Shane has been lazy basically, he ain’t pulling his weight

The professional dancer later took over the washing up duties after Giovanna Fletcher was assigned camp leader.

He said on the show: “If you do a job too well you get given a job, don’t you?

“I’m happy with my role. Yeah, I don’t know why I’m talking high pitched, but I’m happy.”

In a later episode, AJ seemed unimpressed after Shane appeared to chuck his bowl and cutlery down after eating.

“Right, who’s doing the washing up?” he said aloud, as he embraced being off the duty.

The dancer then told the actor to put his dirty bowl in the bucket as he continued to eat.

After putting down his cutlery and bowl, Shane put his hand on AJ’s shoulder, which seemingly left the dancer unimpressed.

Discussing the moment on the pair’s podcast AJ vs Curtis, the latter branded the Alfie Moon star “lazy” after getting an update about the show from his parents.

The former Love Island star admitted he hadn’t had time to keep up to date with his brother’s antics, but heard there had been talk of tension between the pair.

His mum Debi and dad Adrian went on to explain what happened between the duo.

Curtis’ dad said their had been “friction” after AJ confronted Shane about using the big pot to do the washing up.

“Already that started a little bit of friction, that was the first thing,” Adrian explained.

Curtis interjected: “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.”

AJ’s mum added hesitantly: “Shane is Shane and he’s fine,” to which Curtis interrupted: “He’s got a big personality, he’s lovely and everything, but Shane you’ve got to do your jobs, you can’t be in that place not doing them.

“It doesn’t matter if you’re older or younger, you’ve got to get your jobs done.”

Curtis’ dad went on to discuss the moment AJ appeared unimpressed after Shane put his hand on his shoulder.

“You know that look Curt,” he said.

“AJ did the AJ look that the world never sees,” Debi added. “But we all know AJ is total restrain, he doesn’t do confrontation, he would never argue and never insult someone but the look said it all and it was just hysterically funny.”

Elsewhere Shane’s son, also named Shane, recently accused the show of exaggerating tension between the pair.

He wrote on Twitter: “I know it’s a tv show but ur playing with people’s lives man.

“If their really is tension then I’m all for it. Or are you editing to cause tension? That’s what I can’t agree with.(sic)

“I know it’s telly but theirs vile comments being thrown around and it’s not fair.”(sic)
