Boy George allowed to wear very different Im A Celeb outfit than other stars

Boy George, whose real name is George Alan O'Dowd, is known for his former role as the lead singer of the pop band Culture Club.

The band released chart-topping songs including Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want To Hurt Me? as they became the most influential pop group of the 1980s.

Now, the singer has touched down in Australia ahead of his stint in I'm A Celebrity, where he is reportedly the highest-paid contestant in the show's history.

In the promotional cast reveal trailer for the show, viewers met this year's contestants alongside Boy George – who was noticeably wearing a different outfit to his campmates.

But why was Boy George wearing a different uniform?

Here's everything you need to know.

Why is Boy George wearing a different I'm A Celebrity uniform?

The I'm A Celeb cast have donned the usual khaki green shirts and bright red shorts for this year's series, however, Boy George was in a different uniform.

A show source confirmed to Metro why the star is wearing a different outfit to his campmates and the reason is because the singer simply asked to customise his uniform.

His khaki top is covered in large red dots after ITV granted permission for the star to get creative.

In addition to his spotted top, Boy George is also boasting a hat cut into the shape of a crown, which could insinuate that the star thinks he will bag the title of King of the Jungle.

In the promo pictures, Boy George is sporting his iconic makeup look of a red smokey eye and it is currently unknown whether the star will wear makeup in the jungle.

In previous years, makeup was banned from the I'm A Celeb campsite, alongside items including mobile phones, extra underwear and salt and pepper.

Who will star in I'm A Celebrity 2022?

Presenters Ant McPartlin, 46, and Declan Donnelly, 47, arrived Down Under last week to welcome the new campmates to Australia before the latest series of I'm A Celebrity begins.

The campmates have now landed in Australia, with cast members alongside Boy George including:

  • DJ Chris Moyles
  • TV presenter Scarlette Douglas

  • Former rugby player and member of the Royal Family Mike Tindall

  • Stand up comedian Babatunde Aleshe

  • Newsreader Charlene White

  • Lioness Jill Scott

  • Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner

  • Coronation Street actress Sue Cleaver

  • Former Love Island star Olivia Attwood

It is reported that Matt Hancock will enter the jungle as an extra campmate after his Tory whip was suspended.

Chief whip Simon Hart said: “Following a conversation with Matt Hancock, I have considered the situation and believe this is a matter serious enough to warrant suspension of the whip with immediate effect.”
