And the Culture Club star, whose real name is George O’Dowd, said he had finally agreed to appear on the show to hasten his return to the spotlight.
He said: “If you want to compete in the world then being part of telly is part of that.
“This is the biggest show on TV and that is why I am doing it.
“And now I have made the decision, I don’t want to focus too much on what the experience might be like, but my intention is it is going to be amazing.
“It’s three weeks without make-up and three weeks is nothing. I have just done seven weeks on tour.”
And he plans to use his spirituality to win over his fellow campmates and secure the crown for real.
George, who is a Gemini, said: “I will be 1,000 per cent asking them what star sign they are.
“Star signs give you an idea of who people might be. But I am going to really try not to get wound up in camp. I like to think I am a positive person.”
He said: “With a rugby game you know what you are going to get and when it gets hard, you know what it looks like.
“This is something you can’t predict. Your ability to roll with the punches is something you have got to have.”
