Boy George delivers savage dig at Lorraine Kelly over I'm A Celebrity 'tantrum' accusation


Boy George, 61, had remained poker-faced in the I’m A Celebrity jungle as creepy crawlies rained down all over his head, but he spoke out after Lorraine Kelly delivered a dig about his “tantrums” behind the scenes. The presenter had chuckled after hearing reports that the singer had demanded a golf buggy to take him back to camp after a daunting trial, and questioned if he’d ever even watched the show – but Boy George sarcastically responded with a jibe about whether Lorraine “walked everywhere” herself.

The drama erupted when Boy George left the jungle, with him quickly taking to his Twitter account to set the record straight in regard to the gossip.

“It’s rumoured that Boy George threw a tantrum, let’s say, over not being allowed to ride in a golf buggy back to the camp after Bushtucker Trials,” Lorraine had been told by an entertainment correspondent.

Then she asked incredulously: “Does he even watch this show? You don’t get golf buggies, George!”

In view of his over 491,000 followers, George replied, exclaiming: “Yes my darling Lorraine I bet you walk everywhere and do your own make-up? Lol!”

In fact, Lorraine had chuckled during her onscreen conversation about George: “I always have a golf buggy to get me from here to there.”

Gesturing a very small distance, she added: “Top of the list! Should be requirements!

“I think the thing with George is, I don’t know that that many people tell him no,” she added.

“You know, I’m very fond of him, but I think there’s that as well.”

Lorraine also took aim at the Karma Chameleon hitmaker for not speaking more openly about controversial former Health Secretary Matt Hancock.

“Now what is going on? He keeps saying ‘I speak my mind, I speak my mind’ but he’s always sort of doing hushed asides,” she exclaimed.

“He did have a wee bit of a tantrum,” the presenter added in reference to his alleged golf buggy row.

Meanwhile, George also responded directly to a fan on Twitter who suggested that he was accused, among others, of picking on Matt Hancock.

“I think @MattHancock will say otherwise and many will have Ostrich Egg on their faces,” he retorted.

“I treated him with absolute respect. I said what I needed to say and I made some fun digs but there was zero awkwardness. He appreciated my directness.”

George, who was the fourth celebrity to leave the jungle, conceded: “There was lots of sly b****ing about @MattHancock but I told him to stand up for himself and par boil the potatoes to make chips!”

He added cheekily: “I was also the driving force behind the Ostrich omelette. Lol!”
