The former EastEnders star is the latest names to have signed up to the show and has now gone into a two-week quarantine before the series starts next month.
An insider told The Sun: “ITV have always wanted Shane for the jungle but with panto not happening this year and other work opportunities less likely, he decided this was the time to take the plunge.
“Going to North Wales is less of a huge commitment than flying halfway across the world, too, so he jumped at the chance...
“He’s already being talked about by production as an early favourite as he’s such a likeable bloke and known to millions of soap fans. ITV are delighted they’ve managed to convince him to take part.”
Former EastEnders star Jessica Plummer has also reportedly signed up for this year's show.
