Shane Richie joined a host of famous faces in Wales yesterday for the launch of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2020. During his first day in the castle, the father-of-five is said to have sent secret messages to his children, according to a social media post.
During his time in camp, Shane’s Instagram account has been taken over by his wife Christine and other family members.
Last night, the account revealed their “special” way of communicating via the TV show.
“Shane’s special signal to the children, telling them he loves them,” the post read, in view of the actor’s 36,900 followers.
It was signed off with the affectionate and humorous hashtags: “#love #daddy #husband #trials #hecanbequitefunnysometimes.”

The accompanying picture showed Shane in camp with his hand across his face and fingers either side of his nose, light-heartedly appearing to give two fingers.
The 56-year-old television star is dad to Mackenzie, 14, Lolita, 12, and Romani-Skye, nine, and Shane Jr, 31, and Jake, 28, from his first marriage to Coleen Nolan.
“Awww that is so sweet,” one follower wrote in the comments section of the post.
Another eagle-eyed viewer added: “I did wonder if that was some sort of sign.”
“Aw that’s adorable. Going to look out for that special sign from now on. What a big softie he is, bless him,” a third remarked.
