I’m A Celebrity fans have slammed Boy George for trying to bring attention towards himself when Jill Scott was crowned Queen of the Jungle.

The singer, 61, was sat with his fellow former campmates in the studio as they watched hosts Ant and Dec reveal the winner of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2022.

But viewers noticed that the special moment for the Lioness was a moment he took ‘the spotlight’ to himself, they say by throwing his drink up in the air as Jill was given her title as Queen.

‘Attention seeking’: I’m A Celebrity fans have slammed Boy George for trying to bring attention towards himself when Jill Scott was crowned Queen of the Jungle

George, sat in the centre of the top row of celebs, donned a bold red hat and he raised his glass as the good news was revealed.

He then appeared to throw the drink up in the air in jubilation for Jill.

Some fans did not take well to the celebratory move from the Karma Chameleon singer.

One wrote on Twitter: ‘Boy George throwing his drink over himself cuz the attention is on somebody else.’

Another said: ‘Boy George wanting the spotlight by chucking his drink.’

Similarly, someone else wrote: ‘All the celebs were looking at Jill… apart from Boy George, he was looking for the camera pointing at him. Urgh. Well done Jill.’

One other quipped: ‘Boy George trying to make it about him by chucking his drink?’

Earlier in the week, George became the first I’m A Celebrity campmate to snub the show’s post-exit interviews.

The singer, real name George O’Dowd, did talk to Ant McPartlin, 47, and Declan Donnelly, 46, after he was the fourth celebrity to be axed from the show on Tuesday evening but did not do the usual daytime TV slots the morning after.

Not happy: But viewers noticed that the special moment for the Lioness was a moment he took ‘the spotlight’ to himself, they say by throwing his drink up in the air as Jill was given her crown

Scarlette Douglas, 35, and Sue Cleaver, 59, both appeared on Good Morning Britain from Australia and Charlene White, 42, spoke to her co-hosts in the Loose Women studio.

Not long after, George was refused permission to fly back to the UK from Australia after the homesick star demanded a waiver from the I’m A Celeb final.

The diva-like singer was ‘desperate’ to go home but is contractually obliged to stay in Australia until the ITV series has ended.

Sources close to the Karma Chameleon star told MailOnline: ‘He wanted to go home immediately, he doesn’t want to hang around.’

They continued: ‘If he had his way he would be on a plane already but he wasn’t allowed to do that.

‘His aim of going into the jungle was for the world to see the stripped back version of him, no hair, makeup, costumes, or hats – he didn’t actually care how far he went in the competition.

‘The fact he has to stay in Australia for days now is an annoyance to him, he isn’t fussed about sticking around for the final but that’s what he has to do.


‘He’s travelled across the world his entire career and has seen Australia before so there’s really no reason for him to be here, especially as he isn’t concerned with catching up with his co-stars on the other side.’

In the Sunday night finale, Jill Scott roared to victory as former Lioness was crowned Queen of the Jungle after winning I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

The sports star, 35, beat politician Matt Hancock, 44, and Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, in the grand final on Sunday evening after surviving 23 days in the Australian camp.

After congratulating the former midfielder on her win, Mike Tindall did the honours in placing the floral crown on Jill’s head as she sat triumphantly on the wooden throne before she embraced her fiancée Shelly Unitt on the bridge.
