Boy George became the tenth star to confirm their participation in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here as he touched down at Brisbane Airport on Saturday.

The singer concealed his recognisable face with a giant lion mask while wearing a black suit, which he teamed up with coordinating trainers.

Upon his arrival Down Under, he told The Sun: ‘I’m here to do a version of the Lion Queen,’ adding that he ‘hopes’ the mask will stay on in-camp.

Asked if he will be eating any creepy crawlies, the vegan star said: ‘I’m a Lion Queen, I have told you. I love all creatures.’
