Boy George made the most of life outside the jungle as he enjoyed a day at the beach on Friday.
The 61-year-old singer swapped the Australian outback for the sandy shores of Surfers Paradise after being voted off I’m A Celebrity on Tuesday.
Enjoying a relaxing day in the sunshine, the Culture Club singer strolled barefoot along the sand while snapping selfies.
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.
Asked by a fan: ‘What was your biggest craving while in the jungle?’, George responded: ‘My biggest craving in the jungle was freedom, was not being told what to do.’
After leaving the show, George snubbed doing ITV’s post-exit interviews, failing to make an appearance on any of the channel’s morning shows the day of his eviction.
He was also reportedly ‘desperate’ to go home but is contractually obliged to stay in Australia until the ITV series has ended.
Sources close to the Karma Chameleon star told MailOnline: ‘He wanted to go home immediately, he doesn’t want to hang around.
‘If he had his way he would be on a plane already but he wasn’t allowed to do that.’
It comes after George was refused permission to fly back to the UK from Australia after the homesick star demanded a waiver from the I’m A Celeb final.
The diva-like singer became the fourth celebrity to be voted off the show on Tuesday night, and is ‘desperate’ to go home but is contractually obliged to stay in Australia until the ITV series has ended.
He also snubbed doing ITV’s post-exit interviews, failing to make an appearance on any of the channel’s morning shows the day of his eviction.
Sources close to the songstertold MailOnline: ‘He wanted to go home immediately, he doesn’t want to hang around.’
They continued: ‘If he had his way he would be on a plane already but he wasn’t allowed to do that.
‘His aim of going into the jungle was for the world to see the stripped back version of him, no hair, makeup, costumes, or hats – he didn’t actually care how far he went in the competition.
‘The fact he has to stay in Australia for days now is an annoyance to him, he isn’t fussed about sticking around for the final but that’s what he has to do.
‘He’s travelled across the world his entire career and has seen Australia before so there’s really no reason for him to be here, especially as he isn’t concerned with catching up with his co-stars on the other side.’
MailOnline has contacted George’s representatives for comment.
The diva-like behaviour continued after Wednesday night’s show which saw George snub Babatúndé Aléshé’s homecoming party after he became the fifth celebrity to be axed from the show.
He was the only former campmate not to greet his co-star at the luxury Marriott hotel, refusing to join the friends and family that gathered to congratulate comedian Baba following his departure at the hotel reception, which has been a jungle tradition for years.
While George wasn’t present, Baba, 36, was welcomed home by his former campmates Charlene White, Scarlette Douglas, and Sue Cleaver, as well as the likes of Matt Hancock’s girlfriend Gina Coladangelo, who embraced him with a hug.
It’s fair to say George has won himself a reputation as a diva while in the jungle.
He infuriated his camp mates by meditating noisily through the night and has been caught bitching about his co-stars, mainly Matt Hancock.
In contrast to his evicted co-stars including Charlene White, Scarlette Douglas and Sue Cleaver, the Eighties icon does not feel obliged to continue supporting his campmates, having previously admitting to pals that he didn’t care when he was evicted and wasn’t signing up for the show to make friends.
He will now be staying at the JW Marriott Gold Coast hotel alongside the other evicted campmates and their friends and family, as well as his sister and nephew, who have joined him in Australia.
During his time in the jungle he accused his campmates of not ‘being themselves’ but when quizzed by Ant and Dec about who he was referring to, he refused to comment.
He also threatened to quit the show altogether when Hancock arrived, telling viewers if his unwell mother had passed during the pandemic, he would have walked from the series.
George said: ‘It’s difficult for me because, you know, had something happened, if my mum had gone, I would have gone when he walked in.’
George was in the Australian jungle for 18 days before finding himself in the bottom two alongside close friend, radio DJ Chris Moyles.
He reportedly banked the highest fee to appear on the series this year, earning a whopping £500,000 for his jungle stint.
The singer told hosts Ant and Dec on Tuesday that he was ‘happy’ to be leaving camp, adding: ‘I am so looking forward to getting back into control.’
He was the first contestant in the show’s history to customise the uniform celebrities are forced to wear, telling MailOnline ahead of entering the jungle that he didn’t seek permission from ITV to make the style adjustments.
George said: ‘Well, I didn’t ask permission. They sent me the hat and it was just too small. So I just chopped it up.
‘To be honest with you, you know, I got sent two shirts. I didn’t think I would get away with that. I just did it.’
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues on Friday at 9.15pm on ITV1 and ITVX.
