Mum Debi replied: “You will understand this.

“Shane is a real character and I would say Shane maybe hasn’t had to be in a position where he’s had to clean up after himself or wash his dishes.”

Curtis then asked: “So has Shane been lazy then?”

Speaking about Shane doing chores around camp, Debi continued: “Not quite doing the jobs he should be doing because they had been chosen by the camp ruler to do certain jobs.

“But one day AJ chose to wash the pots to help because I think Shane was doing a trial.


“Shane had cleaned the pots and it was fine, he did a normal cleaning job of the pots.

“Then AJ did the pots, AJ scrubbed the pots to an inch of their lives, until they were so clean and shiny.”

Curtis said: “If you’re going to do a job do it properly.”

Last week, there appeared to be a frosty atmosphere between Shane and AJ during an episode.

After Shane had threw his dish on the pile, he asked: “Right then, who is doing the washing up?”

He wrote on Twitter: “I know it’s a TV show but you’re playing with people’s lives, man. If there 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 there are vile comments being thrown around and it’s not fair.”
