The insider added: “ITV are interested in using him in some projects, he has theatre work and other avenues to explore too. He was a huge star back in the Nineties and there is nothing to stop him having a big comeback in 2021.”

Speaking before taking part in the show, Shane admitted Covid had left him with no money.

The actor said: “We got the call in January and I agreed to do it because it was the 20th one.

“My kids were old enough to travel to Australia and they wanted to meet Ant and Dec! We were all really excited.

“We were going to fit it around my other work projects 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 candidly 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.”

The final of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! airs tonight on ITV at 9pm
