I’m a Celebrity viewers accused the show of “manipulation” last night as the drama between AJ Pritchard and Shane Richie increased.

Despite the frosty atmosphere between the two they were both voted by the public to take on tonight’s trial.

Strictly star AJ, 26, and former EastEnders actor Shane, 56, have been at loggerheads.

But now the warring pair are set to unite to take on tonight’s ‘Chambers Of Horrors’ trial.

And some thought the editors of the show made the most out of the situation, not least Shane’s son, Shane Nolan.

What did Shane Jnr say about drama between Shane Richie and AJ Pritchard?

Shane Jnr took to Twitter after both AJ and Shane were seen giving each other daggers.

He said: “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.”

How did I’m A Celebrity viewers react to the Shane Richie and AJ Pritchard drama?

It wasn’t just Shane Jnr who thought editors were trying to stir the pot.

One Twitter user said: “So the public are being manipulated by the clever editing of AJ giving Shane a look… then hey ho… they both do a trial together.”

Another said: “Still can’t help but notice the editing to fuel a fire against Shane.

“If the social media mob vote him out first then who is their next target? AJ will still moan when he’s hungry, Bev will still miss most trials etc.”

Why is there tension between Shane and AJ?

The friction between the two has been evident during the past few nights.

It all started when AJ was left unimpressed Shane didn’t do the washing up.

And the atmosphere between the two seemed to increase when Shane threw his pans down and sarcastically asked who was doing the washing up that night.

AJ was seen giving him daggers.

ITV declined to comment on the accusations that editing has inflamed the tensions between the two.

What else did fans say?

While some viewers bemoaned the fact tensions have seemingly been zeroed in on, some can’t wait for tonight’s trial.
