The New Wave pioneer was greeted by the sound of his classic hit Karma Chameleon as he stepped into a five-star hotel after becoming I’m A Celeb’s fourth evictee.
He refused to do any TV appearances following his 18 days in camp but he has finally broken his silence on his time in the jungle in an Instagram live video.
George, 61, answered questions from fans on I’m A Celebrity’s official Instagram account and one of them was: “Which of your songs best described your jungle experience?”
George replied: “My new one it’s called You Can Do This I was humming it in the camp and it became my kind of little mantra.”

He then delivered a line from the chorus, adding: “You can do this, let me help you get through this…”
George also said his biggest craving in the jungle was “freedom” and “not being told what to do” and said he missed coffee more than make-up, adding: “It was nice not seeing myself for two weeks. It will never happen again.”
The pop legend told his fellow campmates in the ITV reality series that he threatened to quit Culture Club when his bandmates opted against releasing Karma Chameleon.
Boy George said: “Karma Chameleon they hated. They hated it. They were like, ‘It’s the final nail in our coffin, it’s rubbish’ and I had to fight to get it onto the record. I had to say, ‘If you don’t put it on the record, I’m leaving the band.’”

The singer also discussed how his family reacted to his androgynous fashion choices when he was younger.
He told his fellow jungle stars: “My mum would say [to my dad], ‘Look at what’s he’s wearing’ and my dad used to get his paper [and drop it down to look] and go, ‘If he wants to get beat up let him go out’ and that was it you know?”
