Boy George moves to British jungle camp

He was once a world star. And Boy George still enjoys great popularity. But the Culture Club singer has already crossed a few valleys in his career. Now he is also exploring the shallows in reality TV – he will participate in the British version of the jungle camp.

“I’m a celebrity… Get me out of here!” committed a real coup. The British version of the jungle camp has now deployed cult singer Boy George for the upcoming season, which kicks off in November. That reports the “Daily Mail”.

It is said that the singer pays dearly for his performance in the TV show. In fact, it is said to be the “largest contract of all time” in the format’s 20-year history. According to the report, the Londoner is expected to raise £879,000, or just over a million euros, to participate.

“It’s beyond exciting that we signed Boy George,” said a production source. “It has been a long time since we were able to attract a major global star to the show and he will undoubtedly attract viewers,” the informant is sure. The singer is a “national treasure” who is also very popular in Australia. He is therefore the perfect addition for the return of the show Down Under. After the format was last produced in Wales, UK due to the pandemic, it is now being re-recorded in Australia for the first time.

Vegan food as a condition

Earlier this year, during an appearance on the show “Saturday Night Takeaway”, Boy George hinted that he was planning to participate in “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” could imagine. In conversation with the moderator duo Ant & Dec, who also guide through the British jungle camp, he made it a condition that the show takes into account his eating habits.

The singer has been vegan for years. “If there’s a vegan version, I’m in,” Boy George says. The only question is how he plans to complete the jungle food testing under this premise. But he might also get a very special celebrity bonus.

Boy George was born George Alan O’Dowd in 1961. With the Culture Club formation and hits such as “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” or “Karma Chameleon” he acquired world fame in the early 1980s. Later he was also active as a solo artist and DJ. After his band reunited in 2014, he is currently reunited with Culture Club. Although he was never able to build on the great successes of his musical early days, the 61-year-old still enjoys great popularity.

social work and imprisonment

Boy George also experienced many lows in his career. He was arrested several times for drug possession. In 2006, he was sentenced to five days of social work in the US. The photos of the singer cleaning the streets of New York went around the world. In 2009, Boy George spent four months behind bars in his native Britain for hitting a call boy while under the influence of drugs.

Boy George is now one of the few really big stars to embark on the jungle camp adventure so far – be it in Britain or in Germany. A-listers on “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!” Until now, there have been former “Star Trek” actor George Takei, singer Limahl and former Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon. In Germany, the promises made by actor Helmut Berger, ex-transport minister Günther Krause and Hollywood star Brigitte Nielsen, who even participated twice, were celebrated as a major coup d’état.
