Shane Richie has been caught mocking his I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! campmate Russell Watson, causing many fans to accuse of him being "jealous".

The 56 year old, who recently revealed he's planning to adopt a sixth child with his wife Christie Goddard, was seen in the confessional explaining he can always tell when the English tenor is near as he sings his way back to camp.

"We knew Russell had returned because we could hear him from halfway across the castle," Shane said in the confessional before mocking the star's singing skills.

Russell, 54, then came in to explain what his trial was like as he said: "My worst nightmare. So they strapped me to like a great big metal plate.

"The objective was the rotisserie turns on it's side, like this, and underneath you is basically a vat of slime."

"He wanted to milk it! He wasn't going to come in here and just tell us how many stars he won, he wanted to go…" Shane continued in the confessional.

Shane, who recently took a jibe at AJ Pritchard's hair as they took part in a horrific trial, then mocked the star by breaking out into an operatic voice to sing: "And it was a dark antsy trial, I had to answer questions while strapped to a plate."

Fans of the show immediately flocked to Twitter to slam the EastEnders star for his behaviour.

One person wrote: "Is it me or does Shane get really jealous of the other guys in the castle?"

"@realshanerichie he hates it when the limelight is on someone else, pretends he's joking but actually he's jealous. Russell was perfectly entitled to come back and tell the tale of this challenge and Shane would have done exactly the same. If it's not about Shane he hates it," another argued.

A third said: "Shane is one jealous hypocritical idiot who can't be happy for anyone else, childish". While a fourth questioned: "Jealous of someone who can actually sing Shane? #ImACeleb".

Russell isn't the only I'm A Celeb star Shane has appeared to clash with on the show as viewers previously noticed tension between him and AJ when it came to cleaning up the dishes.

After a recent episode, I’m A Celeb’s Twitter page shared a clip of AJ and Shane and wrote: “Do you think this tension between @aj11ace and @realshanerichie is going to escalate? #ImACeleb.”

However, Shane’s son Shane Nolan was less than impressed with the tweet and accused the show bosses of "editing to cause tension".

Replying to the tweet, he wrote: “I know it’s a tv show but ur playing with peoples 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. I know it’s telly but theirs vile comments being thrown around and it’s not fair.” [sic]
