I’m A Celeb hosts Ant and Dec refuse to help Shane in trial after backlash

I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly are refusing to help Shane Richie in his next Bushtucker Trial after fans complained about their previous actions.

Former EastEnders star Shane will tackle Wicked Waterways alongside Hollie Arnold – but it seems Ant and Dec are keeping quiet.

In a sneak peak look at tonight's episode, the presenting duo watch as Shane, 56, and Hollie, 26, struggle – but just chat amongst themselves.

In the clip released by ITV, Hollie is heard shouting in a tunnel as she's attached to a chain with Shane, which ends up getting tangled.

"They're making hard work of it," Dec points out, to which Ant agrees: "I don't think they'll do this, you know."

"There's nothing we can say to help," Dec says.

"It's just – it is what it is. Fill up the water, put the water in the collection point. That's all it is."

"You've said it all," Ant laughs. "You've said this," to which Dec replies: "I've said this. I've read this all."

Fans tuning in earlier this week were not happy when Dec appeared to tell Shane where a yellow star was as he completed The Cruel Jewels trial.

Taking to Twitter, viewers begged the pair not to help Shane and to stop getting involved.

One fan said: "Ant and Dec need to stop helping."

Another agreed: "Not Ant and Dec helping him."

A third added: "Ant and Dec not helping Jess and AJ by not saying where the stars were last night, yet they’re telling Shane where the stars are tonight."

This was echoed by another viewer who wrote: "Is it me or are Ant and Dec helping the celebs too much this year? The way they told Shane where that star was underneath the throne."

But many viewers defended the hosts, and others pointed out it wasn't just Shane getting the help.

One fan wrote: "Keep reading Ant and Dec didn’t help last night. Hard helping someone incapable. Said countless times to Jess have you just walked passed one, try boxes etc."

Shane ended up having to do Wednesday night's trial with Jessica Plummer, with the former EastEnders stars managing to get all 12 stars.

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs every night at 9pm on ITV.
