BOY George has sparked fears he’ll QUIT I’m A Celebrity after breaking down in tears over Matt Hancock’s bombshell arrival in camp.
The singer admitted: “I don’t even know if I really want to be here.”
He confided in Scarlette Douglas about the emotional reason he feels uncomfortable about being on the show with him.
Boy George said: “You know, beginning of the pandemic my mum was in hospital. I wasn’t allowed to see her. I thought she was going to die.
“I was tweeting Greenwich hospital going, ‘Please look after my mum.’ I used my name, I was like ‘Please look after my mum.’
“And they did, she was fine… I feel like, I don’t want to be sitting here like I’m having fun with him.
“It’s difficult for me because, you know, had something happened, if my mum had gone, I wouldn’t be here now. I would have gone when he walked in.”
Boy George in the Bush Telegraph then broke down in tears as he reflected on the new arrival.
“If I had lost my mum, I would go,” he said.
“And I feel a little bit selfish, you know, just kind of… everyone’s so nice to him and I was like Jesus, what we gonna do?
“I don’t want to spoil this experience for myself. I’m not good at hiding what I feel. Especially when it’s something so strong.”
One worried viewer said: “I really hope Boy George doesn’t leave, especially not because of Matt Hancock.”
Someone else added: “Boy George is deffo pissed about this whole situation. And I don’t blame him.”
Another said: “Imagine Boy George walked because Matt Hancock is there. The only celebrity being paid more than Matt Hancock. ITV would eat themselves.”
