    Shane Richie's son brands his challenge efforts 'pathetic' and 'super s**t'

    The stars on I’m a Celebrity.. Get Me Out of Here! were given a series of tasks on Sunday night’s show to win treats from home.
    EastEnders actor Shane Richie, 56, was put into a group with Giovanna Fletcher, Beverley Callard and AJ Pritchard for their part of the challenge – but Shane seriously struggled, much to the amusement of his son Shane Jr.
    They were faced with a large shield, which acted as an air hockey table.
    The pucks on the shield contained keys.
    Shane and the gang then had their own plain pucks, which they had to use to knock the pucks containing keys down the holes in the table.

    Looking ahead to the future and keen to make his father proud, Scott went on to say he and his brothers will carry on his father’s legacy.
    “He made me so proud to be a Thomas and even though he never really told us I know deep down he was so very proud of us,” he continued.
