I'm A Celeb: An unapologetic Boy George eats Sue Cleaver's banana

I’m A Celebrity 2022: ‘I hid the skin in my pocket so I wouldn’t get caught!’ Boy George is unapologetic as a hungry Owen Warner and Jill Scott discover he ate Sue Cleaver’s leftover banana after soap star’s exit

Boy George caused controversy during Tuesday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! after quickly eating Sue Cleaver’s banana behind his campmates’ backs after she left the jungle.

Coronation Street actress Sue, 59, was the third star to be voted off the show on Monday and singer George, 61, took the opportunity to gobble down Sue’s leftover food before any of the other camp residents got their hands on it.

Having visited the Bush Telegraph to discuss Sue’s exit, Culture Club star George returned to the camp to enjoy the spare fruity snack, leaving forever hungry Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, and former footballer Jill Scott, 35, unimpressed.  

Sneaky: Boy George, 61, caused controversy during Tuesday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity after quickly eating Sue Cleaver’s banana behind his campmates’ backs following her exit

After they noticed the banana discrepancy Owen asked George: ‘You had one last night and one this morning?’

Boy George said: ‘Mmm, I thought it was Sue’s.’

A shocked Owen hit back: ‘Without asking?’ 

Unimpressed: Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 23, was shocked George had helped himself to the banana without asking

George laughed: ‘Says the man who has had more food than anyone in this camp.’

Owen replied: ‘Could have asked first though.’

Owen said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘So last night the bananas we got for dessert we saved for breakfast this morning. There was nine. There’s one short. 

Farewell: Coronation Street actress Sue, 59, was the third star to be voted off the show on Monday and singer George took the opportunity to gobble down Sue’s leftover food

‘George confesses, he’s had Sue’s banana. Don’t steal food from me!’

However, an unperturbed George sang in camp: ‘Oh yes, I had two bananas, two bananas today…’

Explaining himself in the Bush Telegraph, the Karma Chameleon hitmaker said: ‘I had a banana last night and then obviously Sue left this morning and there was an extra one, so I took it and I ate it and I hid the skin in my pocket so I wouldn’t get caught!’

Hunger strikes: Former footballer Jill Scott, 35, also quizzed George on why he had helped himself to the food

Earlier in the episode, Owen had said how even the mention of foot was making him feel more hungry.

After Jill and Sue had a discussion about sushi before her departure, Owen complained: ‘Why does everyone insist on making me hungry?’

Radio DJ Chris Moyles said: ‘To be fair, anything would make you hungry’

In the Bush Telegraph, Owen said: ‘I’m having the time of my life in here but I’m so, so hungry. 

‘Everyone’s chatting about food and it’s making me even more hungry and I feel like I’m going mad. Please just stop chatting about food.’

Askew: Former rugby player Mike Tindall admitted: ‘It’s a tough morning. It’s almost like I’ve gone through a divorce,’ after Sue’s departure

Elsewhere, the group discussed Sue’s exit after it was revealed she’d come bottom of the public vote by hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, which prompted the actress to excitedly yell: ‘I’m going!’

Comedian Seann Walsh joked in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Sue has gone. Obviously she is over the moon about that, hid it well.’ 

Owen said: ‘She’s an amazing woman and I feel honoured to have met her.’

Former rugby player Mike Tindall admitted: ‘It’s a tough morning. It’s almost like I’ve gone through a divorce and a political break up in one sitting. 

‘I lost my camp wife and the Odds and Sods lost their deputy, which left a vast hole.’

Boy George, who was named as being in the bottom two of the public vote with Sue, said: ‘I was kind of like, I’d like to stay, I’d like to go. Either would be good because you’re onto the next adventure.’

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! continues at 9pm on Wednesday on ITV1 and ITVX.
