Boy George pictured at Surfers Paradise after I’m A Celeb elimination

Boy George has been enjoying some downtime in Queensland after his elimination from the I’m A Celeb jungle.

The singer, 61, was pictured frolicking along the beach in Surfers Paradise, joined by his sister, agent and nephew.

Looking a little overdressed for the sunny beachside setting, the music icon wore an all-black ensemble with a purple and orange beanie.

The Culture Club singer was the fourth contestant to leave the show, cheering as he was voted out of the jungle.

He later confessed he was glad he left when he did, but insisted he had an “amazing time” roughing it at the camp.

It comes one week after he threatened to quit the show in an explosive rant at the crew after they refused him a ride in a golf buggy.

The singer told crew that he was exhausted and demanded to be ferried back to camp in one of the crew buggies, as Coronation Street’s Sue Cleaver was, but when he was denied, threw a tantrum.

Stunned producers desperately tried to persuade him to stay, eventually calming the singer down after the meltdown, which followed on from a rough Bushtucker Trial.

It was the latest flare-up involving the singer, who had vowed not to be a diva before heading to the filming location in northern NSW.

He claimed he had managed to tame his wild ways with yoga and Buddhism, and not waste his energy on “pointless” squabbles.

Earlier in the season, however, the star blasted campmate Scarlette Douglas after she tried to quiz him on his criminal past.

In 2009, George was sentenced to 15 months in prison for the false imprisonment and assault of Norwegian model Audun Carlsen.

When Scarlette asked him what had happened, he snapped: “That’s not true … it’s not true.

“But thanks for bringing it up. Sometimes these things go into the ether and become folklore. Good job I know what the full story was.

“The best way to explain my thing, Scarlette, if I beat someone up there would be photographs.”

He went on: “There was no photos because I didn’t do that. But I did do one thing. I did handcuff him, yeah.

“Because I’d handcuffed the guy I’d already assaulted him. So, when I said, ‘I did it’, I thought, ‘I’ll tell the truth, they’ll let me go home.’

“I went to prison for four months. I was on tag for four months as well.”

He later raged in the Bush Telegraph: “Scarlette blatantly talked about my court case. I thought it was inappropriate what she did, actually.”
