The pair's nearest and dearest are hitting out - with Shane's son Shane Jnr. calling AJ a "little b***h" and "boring" in a bizarre rant on Instagram.

Now Abbie, 23, has blasted Loose Women star Coleen Nolan's son and said: "I appreciate he is sticking up for his dad, but I don’t think it's nice he called AJ a little b**** and he overstepped the line."

She added to the Mirror: "What we all need to remember is that this is a TV show and it’s for entertainment. I am sure AJ and Shane will be getting along just fine a lot of the time".

It comes after the pair shared a tense moment in camp last night, when Shane threw his dinner canteen down on the floor and AJ told him to "put it by the bucket".

AJ was left with a face like thunder and looked furious when Shane grabbed his shoulder when he walked past later.

Speaking about AJ and his brother Curtis Pritchard, Abbie explained: "He is just very OCD and likes everything in perfect condition, just like he is at home, where him and his brother Curtis are total opposites.

"Curtis is really relaxed and carefree with cleaning, but AJ likes things done a certain way."

Shane Jnr, the actor's eldest son, recently fumed on Instagram: "Shut up you little girl.

"Oh he didn't do the washing up properly? So f**king what? Get a life."

He put up a tough defence of his dad after AJ left Shane's blackened pans gleaming, explaining: "He ain't gonna be everyone's cup of tea.

"Normally I don't bite to that but I'm seeing people slating my dad for something he hasn't even done wrong.
