A former pub worker from High Wycombe has claimed I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here star Shane Richie owes him £1.85 for a lemonade from more than a decade ago.

Toby Green, 32, first met EastEnders’ Alfie Moon when he came to High Wycombe for a book signing at Woolworths in 2003, when hundreds of fans were left disappointed after the shop closed its doors once it was full.

Mr Green, along with his mum and sister, were among the lucky ones to meet Mr Richie and get a signed autobiography.

He then met the soap star again in 2009 when he returned to High Wycombe to turn on the Christmas lights.

Mr Green, who was 21 at the time and working at the Butlers pub in Frogmoor, claims Mr Richie did not pay for a lemonade he ordered, forcing Mr Green to pay for it out of his own pocket.

He said: “He came in with his his wife and his child, and came upstairs as it was closed, to eat their Chinese.

“I asked if they wanted any drinks for the table and he said ‘I’ll have a lemonade please’.

“So I went downstairs, poured the drink, went back up and brought it over to him. I put it down on his table and he went ‘thanks very much mate’ but didn't give me any money for it.

“I had to go downstairs and pay for it out of my own pocket.

“Now that he’s on I’m a Celeb and getting a six-figure salary I thought ‘you can definitely afford to pay me back the £1.85’.

“I did find that quite ironic, how Alfie Moon doesn’t pay for a drink in any other pub he goes to.

“I thought it was quite funny, I told one of my colleagues ‘I just bought a drink for Alfie Moon’.”

Mr Richie is a favourite to win I’m a Celebrity and has made a number of trips to High Wycombe, including starring in Wycombe Swan pantomimes three times.
