Shaun, who finished runner-up to Stacey Solomon on the 2010 series, told the Nottingham Post he believes it was fixed for the former ‘X Factor’ contestant to win. 

Stacey is now the host of ITV2 spin-off show ‘I’m A Celebrity: Extra Camp’, alongside boyfriend Joe Swash, Vicky Pattison and Chris Ramsay

Shaun also called the show a “piece of piss”, despite revealing he never wanted to take part.

The current series of ‘I’m A Celebrity’ concludes on Sunday (4 December), with Adam Thomas, Joel Dommett, Scarlett Moffatt, Sam Quek, Martin Roberts and Wayne Bridge still left in the jungle.
