One viewer defended Shane with: “Honestly don’t understand why there is no love for Shane? He was the most entertaining one in there? #ImACeleb.”

And a third user declared: “Why is there so much hate for Shane? He literally was the only one bringing the laughs and jokes all the way through this and Gi is alright. But I don’t get the fascination not done much but cook #ImACeleb.”

Meanwhile, Shane went on to say in his exit interview that he was genuinely sad to be leaving, and even predicted this year’s winner.

The actor said: “I’d love to see Mumma G [Giovanna Fletcher] to win… she’s been there from the beginning.”

He also made a potential dig at other campmates. As he argued you “can’t be fake in there” and last long on the series.
