George claims he is still amazed he managed to stop himself “doing a Gemma Collins” — marching out of the jungle camp after just a few days, as The GC did in 2014.

Speaking to The Sun, the pop icon confessed: “I am a bit of a stomper-outer, I spent the whole of the 80s saying I was going to leave Culture Club. My manager calls it my marching, when I start going, ‘That’s it I’m leaving’.

“So I was amazed how I was able to stop myself from doing a Gemma Collins. I can remember watching her quit and thinking, ‘That could be me’.

“The thing is, the jungle is designed to drive you crazy and it works, because everything in there is impossible. So there were times when I said, ‘If this isn’t beneficial to the show, I’m not doing it’.

“That’s what happened in the stand-off with the buggy. Basically Sue Cleaver, who is younger than me, had a buggy back after a trial but they wouldn’t get me one.

“My view is if the cameras are on, the lights are on and it’s beneficial to the show, I’ll trudge over any mountain you like covered in animal entrails. But when the cameras are off . . . 

“Sue had her buggy and Ant and Dec have gone off in a lovely Range Rover, and I’m like, ‘OK, now there’s a duty of care issue, there’s no way I’m walking up that hill.

"I’m 61, I’m asthmatic, I’m pulling that card. And there’s no reason for this. Unless you can give me a really good reason why I should walk up that hill, I’m not walking up it’.

“All the crew kept passing the buck, so I just sat in a wheelbarrow, thinking ‘I’ll sunbathe. I’m just going to sit here while they sort this out’.

“Then I thought, ‘They’re not going to get me a buggy’, but it had gone past reason, so I dug my heels in, thinking, ‘No, I’m getting a buggy. If I’m not getting a buggy I’m getting a helicopter’.

“Then I ran into the shed, locked it. This guy from the crew unlocked it. Then I locked it again. Then I started chanting.
