Shane Richie tells the campmates on I'm A Celebrity about his experience go-karting with Tom Cruise over 20 years ago.

Shane Richie has opened up to his I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! campmates about his surreal experience of go-karting with Tom Cruise.

The former EastEnders star revealed that he was enlisted by the owner of a local go-karting track to serve as competition for Cruise, who was filming in London with then-wife Nicole Kidman over 20 years ago.

"I got a phone call from Charlie who used to run it and he said 'come along on your own' and I was going through a real public divorce at the time, I was being followed by the press," he said.

"I turned up and went in and he said 'I've got to tell you Tom and Nicole are here - he wants to know if he can race against you because you love go-karting'.

"We'd race til 5 in the morning. He was a speed freak. He didn't care about danger."

I'm A Celebrity continues tomorrow at 9pm.
