I’m A Celebrity’s Shane Richie planning to adopt a sixth child with wife Christie

Shane Richie has revealed he's planning to adopt a sixth child with his wife Christie.

The I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here star wants to have another child once the show ends, though he's not sure he can because of his age.

He is already dad to Shane Roche Jr and Jake Roche with his ex wife Coleen Nolan, and he shares Mackenzie Blue, Lolita Bell and Romani-Skye Angel Shelley with Christie.

Christie, 41, is 15-years younger than 56-year-old Shane and wants to have more children.

The couple, who have been married since 2007, have also discussed becoming foster parents.

Shane told The Sun : "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."

Shane was married to Loose Women star Coleen from 1990 until 1999 and he married Christine 13 years ago.

He is currently taking part in ITV's I'm A Celebrity.

But the EastEnders actor has been caught up controversy after he was accused of bullying AJ Pritchard.
