AJ Pritchard’s lover defends I’m A Celeb star over Shane row saying ‘he’s OCD’

AJ Pritchard 's girlfriend has spoken out after her beau was seen having a rather tense moment with Shane Richie on I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

Fans of the ITV show took to Twitter on Thursday evening after witnessing a rather awkward moment between the two celebs as they enjoyed a meal around the campfire.

Viewers' comments were prompted by a particular incident in the latest episode of the ITV series, which is set in Wales this year.

AJ was seen looking unimpressed as Shane, 56, practically threw down his bowl and cutlery after eating and asked: "Right, who's doing the washing up?"

The former EastEnders actor was clearly delighted that he was no longer on washing up duties.

However, AJ had recently been tasked with doing the washing up with campmate Jessica Plummer, so understandably he didn't like Shane's comment and told him where to actually put his bowl.

"You can put it by the bucket," he told him, whilst finishing off his own food.

"Who is doing the washing up?" Shane then asked again, to which AJ replied: "Myself and Jess."

Shane then walked over to the bucket, threw his bowl and cutlery on the floor and put his hand on AJ's shoulder as he walked back – and the professional dancer did not look happy at all.

However, AJ's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen has rubbished rumours that Shane is bullying her man – and said the scenes had left her perplexed.

"Hopefully these were just a couple of one-offs," she said.

"AJ is really lovely and gets on with everyone. He is very level headed.

"AJ has the ability to get on with everyone and anyone, people always say how nice he is and how friendly to anyone he meets," Abbie added.

She told The Mirror : "He is just very OCD and likes everything in perfect condition, just like he is at home, where him and his brother Curtis are total opposites.

"Curtis is really relaxed and carefree with cleaning, but AJ likes things done a certain way

But fans of the ITV series didn't exactly agree and were quick to tweet about the awkward incident.

"OMG the tension between AJ and Shane," one person tweeted.

"Ooo these evils AJ keeps giving Shane," a second wrote, while a third person added: "Yes AJ! The shade he is throwing on Shane is giving me life."

A fourth viewer joked: "Who else is waiting for AJ to drop kick Shane in the nuts?"
