BOY George’s team has admitted that he will probably be lying in bed thinking, “Why did I say that?” after HOAR revealed how he threatened to quit I’m A Celeb.
The Culture Club singer, 61, stormed off and stole an apple following an explosive rant at the crew, after they refused to let him ride in a golf buggy following the Partners In Grime Bushtucker Trial.
Responding to the quit threat, his team wrote on Instagram: “If you want not human, not honest – he’s not your guy.
“Half the time he’s just looking for intellectual conversation or some kind of stimulation – he’s not a guy that does well in groups. He’s a one-on-one guy.”
They added: “He starts a topic to encourage that kind of chat, he will probably be lying in bed saying: ‘Why did I say that or do that?’
“No idea George, but who cares, it’s great to watch.”
After the Karma Chameleon hitmaker told former health secretary Matt Hancock, 44, that he had been “hating” on him after struggling to separate the politician from the human, his team added: “He gets upset and gets over it.
“He’s probably hungry and bored and doesn’t like games or people pretending to be something they are not – like that Hancock who is only there to promote a book.
“George is there to challenge himself.
“If you want real honesty and watch emotional challenges handled by someone who is in recovery and works everyday to be a better person, then go on his journey with him…who in that camp could possibly know what it’s like to be Boy George?
“He can laugh, cry, get angry, get lonely, get scared.
“It’s called being human.”
