Boy George slammed for throwing drink as Jill Scott named Queen of Jungle

I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here came to an end last night, with Jill Scott being crowned Queen of the Jungle - but one of her campmates wasn't ready to give up the limelight.

When Boy George returned to the I'm A Celeb studio with the rest of this year's contestants to celebrate Jill's win, viewers at home called him out for 'trying to make it about him'.

While Ant and Dec revealed that Jill had won this year's competition, her cast mates erupted into cheers and applause, while Boy George chucked his drink up in the air.

Boy George was one of the contestants who was like marmite to I'm A Celeb fans this year, as he struggled to cope with camp dynamics and rules.

Unfortunately for the 'Karma Chameleon' singer, launching his drink into the air to celebrate Jill's win was the final nail in the coffin.

"Boy George wanting the spotlight by chucking his drink", tweeted one unimpressed fan.

"Boy George throwing his drink over himself cuz the attention is on somebody else", wrote a second.

"Boy George trying to make it about him by chucking his drink?" complained a third.

And a fourth, irritated viewer pointed out: "All the celebs were looking at Jill... apart from Boy George, he was looking for the camera pointing at him. Urgh. Well done Jill."

The musician wound up being the fourth celebrity to exit the jungle this year, after competing in his share of Bushtucker trials, clashing heads with the former health secretary, and opening up about his time behind bars.

After her win was announced, Ant and Dec told Jill that a whopping 12 million people had voted in the final.

"I think I’m going to owe my grandma a lot of money for the 12 million votes", she joked.

Meanwhile, Hollyoaks star Owen Warner came second in last night's I'm A Celeb final, followed by Matt Hancock in third place.

Earlier this week, fans of the ITV reality series were worried that the politician might actually have stood a chance at winning the show, after sparking intense outrage for signing up in the first place.

In his exit speech, after being booted from the jungle, Matt Hancock got on viewers' nerves one last time by 'gaslighting the nation', as one fan put it.

During his sit down with Ant and Dec, he gave similar one-liners as he had to his fellow contestants, suggesting that people don't know the real him.

"I carry with me expectations," he explained. "People think they know me but actually they don't.

"They know Matt Hancock from the TV and from the media."
