Boy George on I’m A Celebrity: I’m bored of being iconic in the corner

OHMYGOSSIP — Boy George is taking part in this year’s ‘I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!’ because he is “bored of being iconic in the corner”.
The 61-year-old pop icon is a huge fan of the ITV show, but admitted he had to think “long and hard” about whether to take part in the programme this year, before accepting the offer.
He said: “I watch ‘I’m A Celebrity’ every year and I had to think long and hard about this. But I feel like I am in a very fertile creative moment in my life. I am in a moment of rediscovery of who I am as a person, artist and older man and I feel like I do make a lot of effort to be in pop culture.
“I am bored of being iconic in the corner and if you want to compete in the world then being part of telly is part of that. This is the biggest show on TV and that is why I am doing it. And now I have made the decision, I don’t want to focus too much on what the experience might be like, but my intention is it is going to be amazing.
“It’s three weeks without make-up and three weeks is nothing. I have just done seven weeks on tour.”
ITV have confirmed the Culture Club singer will appear alongside ‘Coronation Street’ star Sue Cleaver, ‘Hollyoaks’ actor Owen Warner, former England rugby player Mike Tindall, radio presenter Chris Moyles, England Lioness Jill Scott, comedian Babatunde Aleshe, former ‘Love Island’ star Olivia Attwood, and TV presenters Charlene White and Scarlette Douglas.
Mike – who is the husband of Princess Anne’s daughter Zara Tindall – admits it will be “difficult” to land the King of the Jungle title, because winning the show is “out of your control”.
He said: “I reckon it’s a difficult one to win ‘I’m A Celebrity’. I am used to doing something where you know if you do the best you can, you can win. This isn’t that set up.
“All I would hope to do is be useful to the group. Winning is out of your control. But I am not going in to win it. All I can do is what I think is the best and someone else will judge me on whether they think it is. I am looking forward to it.”
‘Corrie’ star Sue – who has played Eileen Grimshaw in the ITV soap since 2000 – has admitted she isn’t going to “wind herself up” over her jungle experience.
She said: “I am going in with an open mind. Nothing is going to kill us and I am not going to wind myself up, trying to overthink everything.
“I don’t know how I will behave and I am going to let the experience unfold in front of my eyes.”
