Shane Richie is reportedly set for a major comeback after being left skint.
The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star, who recently took a swipe at his campmate AJ Pritchard over his hair, previously confessed he’s skint with just £4,000 left after his TV and theatre work was halted due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
However, now a show insider has revealed that the 56 year old has been bombarded with incredible offers that will ensure he doesn’t have to live off credit cards and favours from friends.

“Before going in [to the castle] Shane said he’d love to go back to EastEnders in 2021 but there are now other offers on the table too over the next 12 months," they told Mirror Online.
"Shane’s going to be a busy man. He won’t be skint when he’s finished taking some of the opportunities available for him now, that’s for sure.
“ITV are interested in using him in some projects, and he has theatre work and other avenues to explore too.
"He was a huge star in the 90s and there is nothing to stop him having a big comeback in 2021.”
Shane, whose son recently accused ITV of "playing with people’s lives" amid his clash with co-star AJ, previously spoke out about his financial situation.
“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," he told The Sun Online.
The former EastEnders actor added: “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!”
It comes as Shane recently revealed he’s planning on adopting a sixth child with his wife Christie Goddard, who he already shares Mackenzie Blue, Lolita Bell and Romani-Skye Angel Shelley with. He is also dad to Shane Roche Jr and Jake Roche with ex wife Coleen Nolan.
He told the same publication: "We always talk about it, myself and Christie, and because she is fifteen years younger than me and she is only 41, so there is still time.
"We have been talking about having another baby and there is still time and she is always talking about wanting another kid (her own biological kid) and I know our daughters would love another brother or sister.
"But now we are talking about adopting and because we live in Surrey, the rules there are very different to when we lived in Bucks, which was a long time ago, but I am still up for it."
