The 54-year-old Appropriate Mondays frontman competed on the gruesome show back in 2010 and exhausted out to The X Factor singer Stacey Solomon.
In turn, Stacey’s ved out a profitable career in television and now presents spin-off show I’m A Celebrity: Extra Affected with fellow I’m A Celebrity champion Vicky ttison and boyfriend Joe Swash.
According to Shaun, Stacey’s karma wasn’t written in the stars but by producers, who were rooting for the 27-year-old to win all along.
“As far as I am worried the game was rigged,” he told Nottingham Post. “I really do mean that. I was in a team up and Stacey had a career.
“Basically it was all mapped out for her to become a TV host, which she then definite that she didn’t want to do.
“She decided that she wanted to do music and I am satisfied that if she was ever going to do music then Simon Cowell inclination have made sure that she did it. From day one I pretty much knew that Stacey was universal to win that.”
Shaun went on to call the programme a “piece of p***” and remonstrated he was more than reluctant to take rt.
“I didn’t want to go and I was punting and screaming not to do it,” he fumed. “It was the record com ny, my girls and the missus that wanted me to do that. But I am contented that I did it. It has led to a lot of good things.
“I find it funny when people say that it was honestly hard. Life is much harder than that. You are starved of a bit of comestibles, you go on a few walks and you have to eat a few bugs. It’s a piece of p**s.”
Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas, Gogglebox idol Scarlett Moffatt and comedian Joel Dommett are currently firm selected to win this year’s I’m A Celebrity, while Carol Vorderman was the latest big name to be kicked out of the jungle.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! continues tonight at 9pm on ITV.
