But after missing out on the star, the hosts told him it was located underneath the throne he was sitting on.

The helping hand didn’t go unnoticed by viewers, as they took to Twitter to complain.

One viewer wrote: “Why are they helping Shane by telling him where the stars are? But yesterday, they didn’t help AJ and Jess in pitch black.”

Talking in the Telegraph afterwards, Jordan said: “I don’t even know how it happened, I just thought I’m going to get in the shower with Shane Richie.

“Not many people can say they’ve had a shower with Alfie Moon.”
