Karen Ritchie, the mother of Charlotte Crosby's ex-boyfriend Joshua Ritchie, has issued a warning to the reality star's new love interest, Ryan Gallagher.
As Charlotte, 29, and Ryan, 31, grow close on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Australia, Karen liked an Instagram comment describing her son's ex as a 'psycho' on Tuesday.
It's possible she was responding to Charlotte revealing in the jungle that Joshua was lazy during their two-year relationship.

Before Charlotte and Joshua ended things in November, the ex-Geordie Shore star was close with Karen, and the pair would regularly spend time together.
During Monday's episode of I'm A Celebrity Australia, Charlotte slammed Joshua while discussing their 'bad break-up'.
She told Ryan that her work schedule had caused tensions with Joshua, 25, because she was much busier than he was.
'I recently split up with my boyfriend of two years and it has been a pretty bad break-up,' she began.
