I'm A Celeb: Boy George slammed for calling Charlene 'controlling'

I’m A Celebrity 2022: ‘Can Boy George leave Charlene alone?’ Singer is SLAMMED by viewers after he criticised the presenter for being ‘controlling’ with the cooking

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans were left unimpressed when Boy George criticised Charlene White for being ‘controlling’ on Tuesday’s episode.

The singer, 61, claimed the presenter, 42, was being overly bossy when it came to cooking in camp, but he has since come under fire for his comments.

After the scene aired, viewers took to social media to discuss the tension as fans pleaded with the Karma Chameleon hitmaker to ‘leave her alone’.

During dinnertime, the celebrities were given kangaroo sausages and lady fingers for dessert. 

Charlene said of the sausages: ‘Slice them small and stir fry them with the spring onions.’ 

Boy George in the Bush Telegraph said: ‘It’s so weird, that [food] bag comes down and Charlene just turns into an entirely different person.

‘It’s amazing, she issues orders and tells everyone what to do. I’m like, ‘Wow’. You know, it’s like, ‘Who are you?”

He added: ‘Charlene she just issues orders. For me as an observer of my own feelings, it’s mind blowing.’

Tension: The singer, 61, claimed the Loose Women presenter, 42, was being overly bossy when it came to cooking in camp

Viewers were unimpressed with this however and many felt Boy George was being unfair towards Charlene.

One fan said: ‘Why is boy george crying about how Charlene get the cooking done? Just be grateful you have food like’.

Another said they would vote for Boy George to do the next Bushtucker Trial, writing: ‘boy george thinking he can get away with talking to the nations sweetheart charlene like that?! next trial is yours.’

One user added: ‘Can Boy George leave Charlene alone?’ and another said: ‘Real funny that Boy George can chat [about] Charlene but can’t say it to her face’.

Reaction: Viewers were unimpressed with this however and many felt Boy George was being unfair towards Charlene

Another wrote: ‘Boy George attacking Charlene, protect her!’ while one fan said: ‘My girl Charlene is in the right Boy George is just a hater’.

Another person joked: ‘You hearing that George – it’s Charlene’s kitchen not yours.’

A different person quipped: ‘Someone needs to humble Boy George.’

After washing up, Scarlette walked back into camp and said to Boy George: ‘Didn’t fancy helping BG?’

Boy George said: ‘I just feel like Charlene’s very controlling. She tells you what to do and it really rubs you up the wrong way.

‘I’m struggling with that, but I’ll get over it. It’s fine, she’s very sweet as well so it’s a real contradiction.

‘There’s this controlling side and then there’s this caring side and it confuses me.’

Uh oh! Boy George in the Bush Telegraph said: ‘It’s so weird, that [food] bag comes down and Charlene just turns into an entirely different person’

He added: ‘Charlene she just issues orders. For me as an observer of my own feelings, it’s mind blowing’ 

As he spoke Charlene walked in, causing for some awkward tension.

In the awkward swipe, Boy George said he wouldn’t be told what to do by ‘a bossy boots’ as he shared his dismay at the ‘kitchen hierarchy’, which saw Charlene and Mike Tindall offer to cook.

Speaking to Chris Moyles, he fumed: ‘I felt sick afterwards, I don’t think the mushrooms were cooked. I feel like there’s a bit of hierarchy in the kitchen with Mike [Tindall] and Charlene, there’s this patriarchy.

‘I don’t want to be told what to do by someone, quite a bossy boots.’

Reaction: Fans picked up on the rumbling feud between the pair and took to social media to share their thoughts

Radio presenter Chris, 48, admitted in the Bush Telegraph after their conversation that Boy George doesn’t like ‘authority’ as he commented on his rant.

Boy George said he was a ‘good cook’ as he shared his desire to have a go at feeding the main camp.

He added: ‘When someone’s already decided they’re in charge of the kitchen, it’s difficult to have your say.’

Unimpressed: Boy George said he wouldn’t be told what to do by ‘a bossy boots’ as he shared his dismay at the ‘kitchen hierarchy’
