Shane Richie’s son digs up Tom Cruise’s race scorecard – exposing unlikely outcome


I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here! Star Shane Richie delighted fellow campmates with tales of his showbiz escapades in the Tuesday night installment of the hit reality show.The former EastEnders actor has revealed that he once found himself karting with Hollywood royalty Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman in the late ’90s, when the couple were the hottest couple in Tinseltown.

As the bizarre story captivated Shane’s new friends, viewers at home guessed that the Alfie Moon star might be exaggerating the huge name drop.

Quick to defend his father, Shane’s son Shane Nolan Jnr took to Instagram after unearthing the exact race receipt – which the actor has kept to this day.

“For those who think my dad was talking shit…” Shane said as he posted the proof.

But Shane Snr may not be very happy with the results revealed, as his son also pointed out: “He got beaten by Nicole Kidman. ”

The scorecard showed Mission Impossible star Tom finished first with his then-girlfriend Nicole, who came in second within seconds of him.

While Shane had to settle for fifth place when he was lagging behind the best.

Telling the story of the race to his fellow campers, Shane said, “When I was in the West End doing Boogie Nights in 1999, Nicole Kidman and Tom were filming Eyes Wide Shut. And there was a big indoor go-kart track near the BBC. .

I got a phone call from Charlie running it and he told me to come on my own and I was going through a real public divorce at the time, I was being followed by the press so I came in and I was walked in and he said sit down i have to tell you tom and nicole are there… he said he wanted to know if he could race against you because you like karting.

Campmates shared their famous stories

Shane said he ran the pair until “5 a.m.” adding: ” [Tom] was a speed freak. He didn’t care about the danger. ”

Vernon Kay then managed to eclipse that story by saying he saw Brad Pitt in Marks and Spencers and Prince William and Kate near his “favorite” DIY store on the same day.
