Shane Richie has been keeping us all entertained in the I'm a Celebrity camp/castle this year, with his witty banter and tricky trials.

However, his baby-faced complexion hasn't gone unnoticed and now his eldest son Shane Roche Jr., 31, has spoken out about the 'work' his dad has had done.

Talking to a magazine he said of his dad's youthful looks: "He looks younger than me."

However, he admitted to New magazine that he wasn't sure what he'd actually had done: "He's had a bit of work done. I don't know what it is but he's had something!"

Shane Jnr is the I'm a Celeb's son with Loose Women star Coleen Nolan - who was married to the actor from 1990 until 1997. 

And while he joked about his dad's possible plastic surgery he also said he 'couldn't breathe' when he watched him take part in his latest trial.

On Tuesday night Shane took part in a trial which saw him crawl around with spiders, cockroaches, pythons, maggots, and even snakes - in a bid to win the rest of the camp dinner.

The ex-EastEnders actor, who joins other celebrity faces such as Vernon Kay and Mo Farah in the camp, admitted in camp that before he worked on the soap he was nearly broke.

As well as Shane Richie Jr. the TV personality has four other children - Jake, Romani-Skye, Lolita and Mackenzie. He also remarried in 2007 to actress Christie Goddard.

In other I'm a Celebrity news Holly Willougbhy has been blamed for turning I'm A Celebrity into a "soft" show by her This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield.
