It comes amid other changes with this series – with the stars of the show now staying at a different hotel when they leave. 

They will no longer be checking into the luxurious Palazzo Versace Hotel but will instead be staying in the JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort and Spa nearby.  

Boy George was the fourth campmate to be evicted from the jungle on Tuesday night’s episode. 

The singer, 61, was named in the bottom two after the public had cast their votes along with radio DJ Chris Moyles, 48.

After hosts Ant and Dec announced the news, the Culture Club star hugged his campmates and told them: ‘I’ll tell you what it’s like when I’m out.’

In his exit interview, the pop star said: ‘I am sort of ready. I had an amazing time and I’ve done a lot of things I thought I’d never do. I’m excited to see my sister.’

George described his time in the jungle as ‘beautifully challenging’ and ‘somewhat enlightening’, saying it had allowed him to go on an ‘inner journey’.

On how he managed to keep himself sane in the camp, he said: ‘I had to forget who I was the whole time I was in here, I had to let it go. I just had to get over it.

‘I just had to say, ‘I’m in the jungle, I’ve had no control.”

He added: ‘Being really honest, I am happy to go today. It’s not something I thought I would ever do but it’s a lot tougher than I thought.

‘I think it really makes you appreciate what you have and the people that you love.’

The musician said he would like to see former rugby player Mike Tindall or ex footballer Jill Scott win.

Of Mike, he said: ‘He’s been the most stoic, he’s done the most. I think he’s much wilder than he lets on,’ before concluding: ‘I think Mike or even Jill.’

George’s departure prompted a mixed reaction from fans, with many taking to social media to express their opinion.

Agreeing with the public vote for George to leave, one person wrote on Twitter: ‘Hilarious! He’s out because he’s been relentlessly spiteful and nasty. It’s not complicated.’

Referring to politician Matt Hancock remaining on the reality show longer than George, another person tweeted: ‘Boy George learns he’s LESS popular than the Health Secretary after a major pandemic! Hilarious.’

Another viewer who was pleased to see George go wrote: ‘I am glad that boy George is out. I believe in kindness and I want to see people being kind to Matt Hancock.’

However, not all viewers were unimpressed, with one person writing: ‘@BoyGeorge you were fab, fab, fab on the jungle!! Sorry to see you go, you made the show for me.’

Another fan shared: ‘I thought Boy George was fabulous. Straight talking, not afraid of confrontation & game for a laugh. Granted he’s a bit of a diva, I think it adds to his charm.’

‘I thought he was great – individual and entertaining – there are a couple of beautiful ppl in there namely Owen and Jill and the rest are dull’, shared another viewer. ‘In a world where we try and encourage ppl to be who they are there is a lot of hate for Boy George – totally himself and respect to that.’
