Shaun Ryder let fans down when he made several hilarious mistakes during I’m A Celeb… South Africa on Thursday.
The Happy Mondays star, 60, joined Andy Whyment and Myleene Klass at the Savannah Scrub camp after being banned by Georgia Toffolo.
ITV viewers then saw Shaun bond with Andy as the celebrities made the shocking revelation that they grew up in the same area and even went to the same school.
But while the pair were chatting, Shaun hilariously called the Coronation Street actor by the name of his soap character Kirk.
Moments earlier, Shaun was asked by his new campmates living in the main camp – but he completely forgot their names, including his best friend Phil Tufnell.

It comes after Toff banished Shaun Ryder to Savannah Scrub during the opening of I’m A Celebrity… South Africa on Thursday.
The former Made In Chelsea star, 28, had been tasked with sending one contestant to the smaller camp with Myleene Klass, 45, and Andy Whyment, 42, after arriving late.
But after she announced her decision after much deliberation, all viewers said the same as they did on Twitter.
Toff claimed she chose the Happy Mondays singer, 60, because he had “a really lovely nap.”
The apologetic star told Shaun as he packed his bags, “I’m so damn sorry. I’m going to make it up to you, I’m sorry.’
But Shaun replied, “I’m made up,” much to her surprise.
She said in the bush telegraph: “Shaun seemed to be okay with it. We haven’t had a conversation before, so I don’t know if he wasn’t bothered or actually furious…probably the latter.’
The Step On hitmaker told the camera, “That’s exactly what it is. Someone had to go and that’s me.’
Fans of the show joked that they weren’t surprised by Conservative Party member Toff’s decision due to her political alliances.
One of them wrote, “#imaceleb Toff choosing Shaun is the start of the class war.”
Another said, “Toff’s picking of Shaun Ryder is the most Tory thing ever. Picking the guy with the bad hip and health issues to put him in worse circumstances. At least she is consistent with her party #ImACelebSouthAfrica #ImACeleb.”
A third wrote, “Toff sending Shaun to camp is Tory behavior.”
Another joked, “Toff sends the man with a cane to a base camp where he has to sleep on the ground. Yeah, sounds like a typical Tory. #ImACeleb.’

Blunder: ITV viewers were left in the lurch when Shaun made several funny mistakes during the show
Georgia first competed in the reality show in 2017 where she was crowned Queen of the Jungle.
On Thursday’s episode, I’m A Celeb fans were left in awe when Phil Tufnell made a hilarious mistake.
The stars received a note at the South African camp stating that Carol and Phil would take on the next chest challenge.
However, Phil hilariously misheard it for a chess challenge, leading him to think he was going to play a game of chess with Carol Vorderman.
Phil was then corrected by his campmates before admitting he was “gutted” because he is “good at chess.”
Fans were left in hysterics, with one penning on Twitter: “Phil is killing me.”
Another wrote: ‘Phil thought he was on his way to a game of chess’
A third said: ‘Honestly I thought they said chess and not chest’
Another fan commented, ‘I can’t be the only one who heard Chess challenge’
Question of Sport star Phil was crowned King of the Jungle in 2003, beating footballer Josh Fashanu and designer Linda Barker to the coveted title.
Phil tries to grab the crown for a second time as he goes up against other former winners and fan favorites.
I’m A Celeb South Africa: Viewers all said the same thing when latecomer Georgia Toffolo banned Shaun Ryder to Savannah Scrub camp on Thursday’s episode
The South African show was pre-recorded in South Africa’s Kruger National Park last year and the first episode aired on Monday.
For the first time in 21 years, the show, which kicks off Monday and features an all-star cast, doesn’t end with a Jungle King or Queen — instead with a “Legend.”
The lack of public votes means the stars, including Carol Vorderman, Helen Flanagan and Amir Khan, will be competing against each other and thus not be on their way to royal status – instead they will simply be competing with each other.
A statement from ITV read: ‘Without a public vote, they will go head to head in a battle to become the first ever ‘I’m A Celebrity Legend’.’
