I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Boy George has broken his social media silence after becoming the fourth contestant to leave the show yesterday. The 61-year-old has responded to fans’ queries about the show with many keen to know more about controverisal contestant Matt Hancock.
Taking to Twitter, a user named Christine Tidy said George had a “fantastic attitude” towards the media attention he had received, as she claimed he, Chris Moyles and Sue Cleaver had been accused of bullying Matt.
George was amongst other campmates who quizzed the MP about his breach of social distancing rules last year.
The 44-year-old was caught kissing his former aide, now girlfriend, Gina Coladangelo at a time when visiting people outside of your household was not allowed.

“He appreciated my directness,” he added, in view of his 488,000 followers.
Another viewer Yaz MorningStar said George must’ve been “shocked” to learn that Matt is supposedly one of the favourites in camp.
He replied: “I actually couldn’t care less. Very little shocks me but my faith in Scorpions has risen! Lol!”
The singer also shut down reports that he wanted to leave the jungle early.
George tweeted that there is “zero truth” in the story as he explained: “I had an open mind about it.
