    Boy George has fuelled fears he could I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! as Matt Hancock joins camp.

    The pop legend almost lost his mum in the pandemic and opened up about his heartbreak just hours after the former Health Secretary entered the jungle.

    He told A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette Douglas during Wednesday's (November 9) show: "You know, beginning of the pandemic my mum was in hospital.

    "I wasn’t allowed to see her. I thought she was going to die.

    "I was tweeting Greenwich Hospital going, ‘Please look after my mum.’ I used my name, I was like ‘Please look after my mum.’ And they did, she was fine… I feel like, I don’t want to be sitting here like I’m having fun with him.

    "It’s difficult for me because, you know, had something happened, if my mum had gone, I wouldn’t be here now.

    "I would have gone when he walked in."

    Boy George in the Bush Telegraph continued: “If I had lost my mum, I would go.

    "And I feel a little bit selfish, you know, just kind of. Everyone’s so nice to him and I was like Jesus, what we gonna do?

    "I don’t want to spoil this experience for myself. I’m not good at hiding what I feel. Especially when it’s something so strong."

    Loose Women star and journalist Charlene White didn't waste time in quizzing the the wisdom of the politician flying to Australia when the Government has been stable "for five minutes".

    Charlene asked Matt: "So why did you do it?"

    Matt responded: "Because there’s, honest truth, is because there’s so few ways in which politicians can show that we’re human beings, so I just thought it would be good to do that. I’ve got a sense of adventure.

    "If I can use this to sort of peel myself back a bit and just be me, it’s better."

    Charlene replied: “But I can imagine it would not have gone down well at all at home? You have to expect that. Because Parliament is still sitting, we’re not in recess, you know…"

    Matt said: "I genuinely think that because we’ve now got sort of stability that is…"

    Charlene stated: “We’ve had stability for all of five minutes Matt.”

    Matt replied: “Rishi’s great, he’ll be fine.”

    Charlene said: "But you can understand if people aren’t very happy at home about it?"

    Matt said:"I understand that. But I also.. of course I get that, right. But I also just think that sometimes you’ve got to do things differently."

    Charlene said: “I’m not sure going on I’m A Celebrity is the way to do it but you’re doing you and it’s a decision you’ve made and honestly it will be fascinating just to see.”

    Matt said: “Do things a bit differently, eh?”

    I'm A Celebrity continues on ITV at 9pm tonight
