Beaming Boy George snaps selfies on the beach in Australia as he makes the most of his ‘freedom’ after being voted off I’m A Celebrity

Boy George made the most of life outside the jungle as he enjoyed a day at the beach on Friday.

He was casually clad for the outing, donning a plain black T-shirt and baggy trousers as well as a purple bandanna.  

George’s sister Siobhan O’Dowd joined him on the outing, with the pair enjoying some quality time together. 

Earlier in the day, George had joined his fellow campmates in the lobby of their hotel to greet the latest jungle evictee.

Chris Moyles, 48, was the sixth star to be voted off I’m A Celebrity during Thursday’s episode after admitting he was ‘ready’ to leave. 

He received a hero’s welcome from his friends and loved ones, who gathered in the hotel lobby to see him once he arrived at the Marriott hotel.

The former campmates looked in good spirits as they caught up in the hotel lobby as a group, after Boy George missed out on joining the welcome party the day before when Babatúndé was evicted.

An onlooker told MailOnline: ‘George was the only celebrity not to greet Baba after he was voted out the jungle on Thursday morning, local time.

‘It was disappointing because he’s still a part of the cast and was a huge character in camp, it didn’t go unnoticed that he wasn’t there.

‘Everyone else is able to be a good sport but he just seems to have washed his hands with it now.’

A source close to George went onto add: ‘He was busy filming social media content for the show that they require and was following their schedule.

‘He was then rushed into makeup ahead of doing an interview, he didn’t purposefully miss Baba’s return.’

Baba lasted a day longer than George and was the fifth celebrity to be voted out.
