I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have turned on Boy George after he accused Matt Hancock of ‘kicking off’ by asking him to wash potatoes for dinner.

The singer, 61, was assigned with cleaning duties by new camp leader Matt, 44, and his deputy Charlene White and was seen undertaking his new tasks on Monday.

But things became tense as the celebrities were presented with their dinner of camel shoulder, with the former health secretary asking whether the side of potatoes could be washed before being cooked.

‘He’s trying to cook up drama!’: I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! viewers have turned on Boy George after he ‘kicked off’ over Matt Hancock asking him to wash potatoes for dinner

The new camp rules mean the voted leaders cannot help with any of the jobs in camp while the other stars must only do the chores assigned to them.

After Matt asked if the potatoes could be cleaned, George fumed and accused his co-star of ‘kicking off’ with the request, before raging ‘you f**king clean them’ behind his back.

However, viewers were quick to take to Twitter to criticise the Karma Chameleon hitmaker of ‘grasping at straws’ for a row and ‘looking for drama’ as they pointed out washing up was simply his assigned role.

One person said, ‘Would Boy George rather eat dirty potatoes #ImaCeleb,’ while another commented: ‘Boy George is trying to cook up unnecessary drama.’

A third disbelieving viewer wrote: ‘Did Boy George really get annoyed at Matt suggesting the cleaning team help by washing the potatoes?’

And a fourth quipped: ‘Boy George just grasping at straws now. Man just wanted a clean potato #ImACeleb.’

Another called for him to be voted out in the first public elimination, adding: ‘Boy George to be voted out please. I’m no fan of Matt but him asking nicely to clean the potatoes and this grown man is crying over it?? Next.’

Other viewers called George a hypocrite for getting annoyed over Matt asking for potatoes to be washed days after he raged over a ‘horrible’ dinner of mushrooms.

Raging: But things became tense as the celebrities were presented with their dinner of camel shoulder, with the MP asking whether the side of potatoes could be washed by George

‘Boy George getting annoyed that Matt Hancock wanted the potatoes washed as if he didn’t kick off about mushrooms the other day,’ one tweeted.

The tension began when Matt, who is not allowed to get involved with chores in his new role as leader, asked the camp if the potatoes could be cleaned for dinner.

‘Do you think washer-uppers could clean those potatoes? Because those potatoes are quite dirty,’ he asked.

Scarlette Douglas told him it was a ‘good idea’ before George accused Matt of getting ‘feisty’ and enjoying his power as he spoke about the request in the Bush Telegraph.

‘Matt was seen getting a little bit feisty earlier on when we were about to cook the meal,’ he fumed. 

‘The bag came down and there were some potatoes and Matt started telling everyone he wanted them washed, and I was like ‘oh, she’s loving this bit of power’.’

Later speaking to his campmate Seann Walsh, George then accused Matt of ‘kicking off’ by asking him to wash the potatoes.

Anger: After Matt asked if the potatoes could be cleaned, George fumed and accused his co-star of ‘kicking off’ with the request, before raging ‘you f**king clean them’ behind his back

‘Matt’s kicking off, he’s a bit enjoying his power,’ George said as his co-star Seann laughed. ‘Clean the potatoes, you f**king clean them!’

‘Food divides people, it really does,’ he added as he spoke in the Bush Telegraph.

His latest rant comes after tension was already brewing over cooking in main camp after George ranted about the ‘horrible’ mushrooms last week.

The pop star branded the camp’s meal of mud crabs and mushrooms as ‘horrible’ and said it made him feel ‘sick’ as he criticised presenter Charlene’s culinary skills.

He added that he was a ‘good cook’ in the first sign of tension as he, Chris Moyles, Scarlette Douglas and Olivia Attwood joined the celebrities in the main camp.

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, 42, 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.’

Oh dear! He branded the camp's meal of mud crabs and mushrooms as 'horrible' and said it made him feel 'sick' as he criticised presenter Charlene's culinary skills

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

Since, George hasn’t been assigned cooking duties but was instead given cleaning chores by new leader Matt and his deputy Charlene.

However, George isn’t the only one that has been clashing with Matt after Charlene and Sue Cleaver were accused of making sarcastic comments about the Tory MP.

After Matt got picked by viewers for his sixth consecutive trial, Charlene, 42, and Sue, 59, made some comments about it that rubbed fans the wrong way.

Viewers flocked to Twitter and branded Charlene a ‘nasty piece of work,’ while another said Sue was ‘sneaky’ for making the jibes.

‘There’s something really sneaky about Sue. Not fussed on Charlene either,’ one viewer tweeted. 

Another added that the pair should do the next Bushtucker Trial, writing: ‘Sue and Charlene need to do the next trial.’ 

Another added: ‘Worst year of I’m a Celeb ever. One person doing everything, ten do nothing and then moan about him not getting 11 stars. Get lost Sue and Chris [Moyles] and Charlene.’

Sue and Charlene didn’t seem too happy that Politician Matt was voted by the public to complete yet another trial, his sixth consecutive Bushtucker Trail.

‘He must be quite funny doing the trials,’ Sue said in the camp.

Having their say: Some viewers flocked to Twitter and branded Charlene a 'nasty piece of work,' while another said Sue was 'sneaky'

‘Do you think they will get bored of it or do you think they will just carry on. There is a lot of anger isn’t there?’

Charlene replied: ‘Yeah, they’ll just carry on, it’s an outlet.’ 

Sue sarcastically added to camera: ‘I can not tell you how surprised I was that Matt got picked for the trial. Knock me down with a feather.’

During Deserted Down Under, Matt said he had ‘no idea’ why viewers once again voted for him to take on the gruesome challenge – and his sixth trial yet.

He told hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly: ‘There’s nothing I can do about it, I just throw myself at the Trial.’

The challenge saw Matt being buried alive for eleven minutes, during which he would have to retrieve keys to unlock eleven stars. 

And in true I’m A Celeb style, he was joined by insects and critters as well as a selection of snakes – his worst fear – during his sixth consecutive gruesome trial.

Viewers watched as he forced to reach his arms into small holes to search for the keys but struggled at first.

Seemingly horrified by his companions, he called out: ‘Something’s going up my leg! It’s inside my shorts.’

The lights then cut out and Matt was forced to complete the rest of the challenge in total darkness.

But the Tory MP appeared less than impressed at the end of trial when he was told he had bagged seven out of a possible eleven meals for camp.

‘I just managed to keep really calm. I had to be gentle with them [the snakes] but they were fine,’ he said. 

Oh dear! The former health secretary, 44, has so far taken part in six consecutive trials to win food for his campmates - but has finally been spared the next Bushtucker trial

‘My biggest fear [was snakes]. I kind of feel like I’ve faced that. I’ve conquered a fear.’

He noted: ‘It’s not 11 is it? Fine for dinner, haven’t hit it out of the park.’

However, after completing his sixth trial, Matt has finally been spared from facing the next Bushtucker Trial, it was announced during Monday’s episode.

Matt has so far taken part in six consecutive trials to win food for his campmates, but the public has now decided that Babatúndé Aléshé, Chris Moyles and Boy George will all face Angel of Agony on Tuesday.

Following the announcement, made by Ant and Dec, the MP threw his hands in the air with glee – while viewers rejoiced that his screen time will be ‘limited’ as they flocked to Twitter.

One user wrote: ‘Matt’s clearly not phased by the Trials, unfortunately. It’d be much more satisfying if he was a whimpering mess. So, LETS STOP VOTING FOR HIM!! We need a whimp, so the camp starve and it causes tension!! #ImACeleb.’

Others added: ‘Great to see other camp mates going to do trial. Fed up of Matt doing them all,’ and, ‘finally a trial that doesn’t have matt hancock in it.’

A fourth penned: ‘As soon as Matt said he’s enjoying the trials, the public decided he’s not doing the next one.

Another concluded: ‘No trial for Matt thank f**k, limit his screen time now and vote get him the f**k out that jungle the horrible [rat emojis] #ImACeleb.’

Worried! George certainly did not look happy about the decision

In another challenge during Monday’s episode, viewers were stunned after Owen Warner and Scarlette Douglas failed to complete the Meals On Wheels task, formerly known as the Dingo Dollar Challenge.

Hollyoaks actor Owen, 23, and A Place In The Sun presenter Scarlette, 35, were tasked with taking on Jungle De Change, which saw them trying to identify and count different currencies from around the world.

However, while campmates are usually given as much time as they need to complete their mission, the pair were unable to finish the game successfully as they battled against the clock.

One other person posted: ‘THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IVE SEEN A TIME LIMIT (I swear it has taken some of them a whole day to finish them as well bc u will see them in day and then when they’re talking about it it’s night??)’

After failing to win a treat for the camp, Owen said: ‘I’m feeling very disappointed, very deflated.

‘I’m not the smartest geezer about, which is probably why I got put to do that. I feel a bit awful… I feel really tight that I’ve let the campmates down a little bit.’

Elsewhere on Monday, Mike said he once ripped his trousers at wife Zara’s 30th family birthday party to reveal his boxers which read ‘nibble my nuts’ to Princess Anne.

The former rugby player, 44 – whose wife Zara is 20th in the line of succession to the throne as the niece of King Charles – admitted he had a problem with ‘exaggerated dancing’ at special occasions, saying he often ‘sl*t drops’ and tears his clothing.

Discussing smart attire in camp, he explained: ‘I love a suit. My problem with suits is I over exaggerate dancing at weddings… I rip a lot of suits, trousers and stuff.’

Comedian Seann Walsh laughed: ‘Course you do.’

Mike continued: ‘The old sl*t drop gets me every time. I went to a wedding, ripped a suit, they were like, “Oh my God, what are you going to do?” I was like, “Don’t worry I’ve got a spare.”

‘They were like, “Who brings a spare suit?” Someone who rips a lot of trousers brings a spare suit.’

Red-faced: Mike said he performed a 's**t drip' at wife Zara's 30th birthday party to reveal his underwear which said 'nibble my nuts' to which Princess Anne (pictured) said: ¿I'd rather not'

Red-faced: Mike said he performed a ‘s**t drip’ at wife Zara’s 30th birthday party to reveal his underwear which said ‘nibble my nuts’ to which Princess Anne (pictured) said: ’I’d rather not’

He added: ‘Zara had like a 30th birthday, it was a disco 70s themed one, I was dancing on the dance floor, I had like flares on, full outfit but it was quite tight, nothing ever fits – rugby player’s bum and legs – so I was dancing with my mother-in-law and I did a sl*t drop in front of my mother-in-law.’

In the Bush Telegraph, Seann said: ‘Mike sl*t dropped in front of Princess Anne and that is not the end of the story… that’s already, what are you thinking?

Mike, who shares children Mia, eight, Lena, four, and Lucas, one, with Zara, continued: ‘Ripped my trousers, straight in front of her. It happened to be that my boxers that I had on at that time said “nibble my nuts”.’

The amusing tale prompted Seann and fellow comedian Babatúndé Aléshé to applaud him.

Mike, who recently spoke out about his first ‘boozy’ date with Zara, said: ‘As I’ve turned round, she’s gone, “I’d rather not.” I’ve gone, “I’m going” and walked off.’

Seann concluded in the Bush Telegraph: What a legend. Absolute legend. I would love to go to a party with Mike.’

And Mike wasn’t the only one recalling tales on Monday, as Chris Moyles also shared candid details about his shock exit from Radio 1 ten years ago.

Speaking to Matt Hancock, 44, Chris, 48, revealed how he first learned he was getting the axe when he was called into an urgent meeting.

He claimed he was told in the meeting that they would imminently announce that Nick Grimshaw would be taking over his radio show after 15 years, much to his upset.

Chris fumed that he was left ‘cross’ after his sudden exit as they handled it ‘badly’ by giving him mere hours notice, but admitted: ‘Everything happens for a reason.’

‘I knew that Radio 1 is a conveyor belt and you might be there for a year or you might be there for 15 years, but you’re going to fall off the end at some point,’ Chris began. 

Former health secretary Matt commented that ‘politics is like that,’ before asking Chris for more details on his exit.

Claiming he asked for the chance to reveal his sudden exit himself, he continued: ‘I left happy, I was a bit cross after I left and I was cross… they handled it so badly, so badly.’

Fuming: He claimed he was told in the meeting that they would imminently announce that Nick Grimshaw would be taking over his radio show after 15 years, much to his upset 

‘So I went in with my agent and the controller and we sit down and he goes, “Look, this isn’t very easy, I think it’s time we wrapped the show up. We’re going to announce in the news at half 10 that Nick Grimshaw’s taking over”.’

Chris said things got heated between the controller and his agent before he decided that he wanted to announce himself that he was leaving the radio show.  

‘I said to the boss, ”You can’t do that.” He goes, ”well if we don’t do that, it’ll get out.” I said, ‘Well up until 60 seconds ago, I didn’t know about it. So, after 15 years, you can’t do that. I have to announce that I’m coming off the breakfast show and we have to work out what’s happening.’

He said the next day, they finished the show and made the announcement.

‘I was just like, ”Okay, alright.” But, they gave us three months to say goodbye, which was great. So I said, ”you know, thanks for everything, cheers”.’

Chris said he then took a year off work and went to Los Angeles for a month and soon met his partner, Tiff. 

‘Yeah, so everything happens for a reason,’ he said. 

Chris in the Bush Telegraph added: ‘When you do the breakfast show on Radio 1 you get these amazing opportunities coming your way, but you always know in the back of your head, one day that will finish.’

As reported by The Sun, he said: ‘The story goes I was too old for the show. I was 38 when they took us off. They recently hired some DJs who were that age.

‘The show is yours for a while – it is like renting a house for a bit.’

MISSING ANY BIG OCCASIONS? The Men’s World Cup. I am going to find it weird not being able to know how the men are getting on in the tournament. Hopefully they will still be in the tournament when I come out of the jungle

ROLE IN THE CAMP: Helping hand. I like to help people if they aren’t having a good day

BEST ATTRIBUTE: Hard worker. I will always find a way to add value. I am also very honest

DREAM CAMPMATE: Another sports person would be great as it would be someone to bounce ideas off.

CLAIM TO FAME: Politician

PHOBIAS: Snakes. I don’t thankfully suffer from claustrophobia –or I think I don’t!

BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION YOU WANT TO DISPEL IN THE JUNGLE: Politicians are people too and it will be nice for people to see me as me. We are human too

ROLE IN THE CAMP: I like to muck in, and I think I will be collecting a lot of firewood. I like cooking too
