Boy George has hit out at Matt Hancock's real reasons for joining I'm A Celebrity and tells the UK fans not to believe anything the former MP says.

Boy George has launched a scathing attack on his former campmate, Matt Hancock, claiming the disgraced MP misled the public about his motivations for appearing on I'm A Celebrity.

According to NME, the musician attacked the Tory MP for saying he participated in the ITV reality program in exchange for a 'pardon' for his Covid rule-breaking and policy failings.

However, Boy George stated in an explosive news interview that Hancock is just interested in expanding his name and becoming a ‘rock star’ in the eyes of fans.

After finishing third in the competition, behind actor Owen Warner and Lioness Jill Scott, the MP has declared his intention to leave parliament and has published a tell-all book about his time as Health Secretary during the epidemic and his affair.

When entering the jungle, the West Suffolk MP and former health minister stated that his constituency would be his ‘first priority’, arguing that the reality TV program would be an ‘honest and unfiltered’ means to engage with people.

Karma Chameleon singer George, who initially disagreed with the former health secretary on the show, has now issued a warning:

‘Don't believe anything he says about why he did it.'

‘He did it because he wants to kick up his heels and have a good time’, he told The Sun on Sunday.

The singer reveals:

‘We all know that politicians are real people. We also know everyone wants to be a rock star, everybody. Especially politicians’.

Boy George continued:

‘Ultimately, they are doing it for a bigger profile, a bit more attention, hopefully showing people a different side’.

Hancock's political career may end soon

Hancock exceeded many people's expectations by getting to the final of the ITV reality program. However, the former Health Secretary finished third behind the winner, Euro 2022 champion Jill Scott, and Hollyoaks star Owen Warner in a popular vote.

During his stay in the wild, he was voted to perform a variety of Bushtucker Trials and was quizzed by fellow participants, notably George, about his management of the coronavirus outbreak.

According to the Sun, his final choice to join the show while Parliament was in session resulted in his suspension from the Conservative Parliamentary Party and criticism from Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and MPs across the political scale.

Hancock said this week that he would not run in the upcoming general election to ‘influence the public debate’ from outside Parliament.

Co-stars react to Matt Hancock's controversy

After exiting the jungle, Hancock was mocked when he joined a comedy show with co-star Seann Walshwas.

The campmates attempted to quiz the MP on his tenure as Health Secretary, his affair with Tory assistant Gina, and explanations for taking part in the program while still working in parliament, as shown on ITV.

Hancock said that he was joining the program for 'forgiveness' and that he had strayed from his wife of 15 years just because he had 'fallen in love'.

Many of Hancock's co-stars stated they tried to separate their opinions on the politician from 'Matt' after quitting camp to keep things cordial on the program.

However, after she left, ITV reporter Charlene White stated her time in camp was completely different once Hancock came because she had to 'walk a tightrope' and the 'fun stopped' when the MP arrived.
