SHANE Richie’s eldest son told pals he’s considering changing his name back after the soap star prepared to enter I’m A Celebrity.
Shane Jnr used his dad’s surname but changed it to Nolan in 2017 when his mum, Loose Women star Coleen, took part in Celebrity Big Brother.
The Sun exclusively revealed how EastEnders legend Shane Snr, 56, had joined the I’m A Celeb line up last month.
And since the news became public, Shane Jnr, the soap star’s eldest son, has joked he could change his name back again.
A pal said: “Shane Jnr is hugely supportive of his mum and his dad and will do anything to publicly show his love for them.
“When Coleen was in Celebrity Big Brother he stopped using Richie and is now known as Shane Nolan. He did this to support her and to show her how much he cared and respected her.
“It was really sweet and meant so much. After his mates found out his dad Shane was heading to Wales for I’m A Celeb they joked about whether he would change it back to Richie and he’d said he would think about it.
“If he did change his surname it would just be a laugh and something he’s doing to support his old man.”
Shane Jnr, 31, has revealed he’ll be supporting his dad by holding Instagram Lives after every episode to discuss the goings on in camp.
Back in 2017 he went onto Loose Women to announce his decision to use the surname Nolan.
He said at the time: “I'm going to change my name to Shane Nolan to support my mum.
“She doesn't know yet. It's Nolan now.”
Shane Jnr, who said Coleen, 55, was like his best friend, later surprised his mum with the news – leaving her speechless.
