Jordan also got Vernon Kay in on the act and made him reply in a cockney accent as he shined his shoes too.

Speaking in the Telegraph, Shane said: ‘Jordan’s trying to pick up on the London accent. He’s trying to do a cliché EastEnders character.’

Jordan struggled with the world ‘uncle’, saying ‘ankle’.

Jordan said to Shane: ‘It’s like we’re getting ready for a night out.’

In the Telegraph he added: ‘I love pubs. I’m so happy. I’m even getting showered for it and everything. I’m going to get showered and put a new shirt on. I might do my hair as well.’

Later, in the washroom, Shane pointed out Jordan is getting a six pack.

Jordan replied: ‘I’ve not seen that before – that’s because I’ve not drunk beer.’

The mummy blogger, 35, and the presenter, 46, got showered in fish-guts and offal in a bid to get eight stars for a pub meal at the Castle Inn.  

‘There’s only one way to describe it and that’s disgusting’ said Vernon. ‘It’s a smell that I’ve never experienced and I don’t want to ever do that again. That was horrible.’

Heading into camp, the Family Fortunes presenter shouted: ‘Tonight we eat like Kings and Queens!’, before the group headed to the Castle Inn for dinner.  

I’m A Celebrity continues weekdays on ITV at 9pm.
