FORMER I'm A Celebrity star Linda Robson has branded Shane Richie "annoying" and said the ITV show's new castle location "lacked atmosphere".
The actress also revealed she deliberately wet herself on her first night in the camp when she took part back in 2012 because she was too scared to walk through the jungle to the dunny.
Linda said she was so frightened to get up out of bed that she let her waters flow in her sleeping and that Wales' haunted Gwrych castle isn't half as creepy.
In a scathing review on Loose Women today, the Birds of a Feather star, 62, told viewers: "I was really excited about seeing it as Christmas isn't Christmas without I'm A Celeb.
"The scenery was beautiful, the castle is gorgeous but it lacked atmosphere.
"There is too much space in the camp for them. When you are in the jungle you hear noises and critters and our toilet was a dunny.
"The first night we were there I wanted to go to the toilet but they turn off all the lights and I didn't want to try and find my way through the dark so I just wet myself in my sleeping bag.
"I thought I am not going to get a lamp and try and find my way."
Linda went on to call Shane Richie "annoying" and said she needed to get used to the new crop of campmates.
She said: "I think there's a couple of people who are going to be annoying like Shane Richie who is just, not a comedian, but he's trying to be funny all the time."
Andrea McLean was shocked by her remarks, saying: "That's Coleen (Nolan's) ex husband!"
But Linda went on: "I know. But he's been voted for the first trial so people will see that. It just takes you a little while to get used to the campmates.
"Jordan is doing well, he was scared wasn't he? And the women are doing really well, Victoria, Bev and all of that. It will be interesting to see how it goes."
The 56-year-old Alfie Moon actor is now married to Christie.
Shane has five children, including three – 14-year-old Mackenzie Blue, 12-year-old Lolita Bell and nine-year-old Romani-Skye Angel – with Christie.
He also has two older sons – 31-year-old singer Shane Jr and Rixton and 28-year-old Emmerdale star Jake – with Coleen, 55.
Other famous faces appearing on the show this year include Sir Mo Farah, Jessica Plummer, Vernon Kay, Beverley Callard and Victoria Derbyshire.
