I'm A Celebrity's Shane Richie hasn't worked for a year and was rejected by Mr Tumble movie
I'M A Celebrity's Shane Richie hasn't worked for a year and was rejected by the Mr Tumble movie.
The former EastEnders star, 56, was speaking to Giovanna Fletcher about being cut from TV shows and movies.
Giovanna complained that she had to talk herself up to appear on Towie alongside her brother Mario Falcone.
Shane replied: "It happens to all of us. I've done stuff in the past when I thought, hey, I'm in this movie, and I've watched it and I'm not in it and they've cut me."
He added: "I got turned down this year by Mr Tumble. So, we're all out of work, my manager rings up and says I've put you up for this part, they're making this movie before they go into lockdown and they want you to play a cheeky copper.
"No. Don't want him. Didn't even get back to me."
The actor continued: "I've starred with Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, and I'm thinking yeah I'm ready for Mr Tumble and no. Even Mr Tumble didn't want to work with me."
Giovanna replied: "Sometimes you're just not wanted. And that's ok. You sort of keep riding the wave. Sometimes Towie doesn't want you. Sometimes Mr Tumble doesn't want you but someone will."
Mr Tumble – played by Justin Fletcher MBE – is a children's entertainer known for his slapstick comedy.
The Alfie Moon star previously told The Sun that he would be using his I'm A Celeb fee to pay off his debts.
He revealed: “We were going to fit it around my other work as I was going on tour, doing a TV series and panto — but that all got cancelled in March.
“And now I am literally skint. You save money for a rainy day but you don’t expect the rainy day to last six months.
“Thankfully I’ve been able to borrow money from mates, my family and the bank and my wife is now very happy we can finally pay off the credit card!”
