Chris Moyles reunited with his former roommates as he returned to luxury after his stint in the jungle.
The 48-year-old radio DJ became the sixth star to be voted out on Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity after admitting he was “ready” to go.
He was received like a hero by his friends and family, who gathered in the hotel lobby to see him when he arrived at the Marriott Hotel.
Chris beamed broadly as he strolled through the hotel lobby before being greeted by former roommate Boy George and the couple hugged.
The Radio X presenter was also catching up Charlene White, Scarlette Douglas, Sue Cleaver and Babatundé Aléshe.
Although Chris admitted he’s had his ups and downs in the jungle with Matt Hancock, the MP’s girlfriend, Gina Coladangelo, came down to greet him in good spirits.
The former housemates looked in good spirits as they caught up as a group in the hotel lobby after Boy George missed attending the welcome party the day before when Babatúndé was evicted.
A viewer told MailOnline: “George was the only celebrity not to greet Baba after he was voted out of the jungle on Thursday morning local time.
“It was disappointing because he’s still part of the cast and was a big figure at camp, it didn’t go unnoticed that he wasn’t there.
“Anyone else can be a good sport but he seems to have just washed his hands with it now.”
A source close to George added: “He was busy filming social media content for the show that they needed and was sticking to their schedule.
“He was then made up in a hurry before an interview, he didn’t miss Baba’s return on purpose.”
Baba lasted a day longer than George and became the fifth celebrity to be voted out.
On Thursday, George addressed his inability to follow rules when he took to Instagram for a Q&A.
When asked by a fan, “What was your biggest desire in the jungle?” George replied, “My biggest desire in the jungle was freedom, I wasn’t told what to do.”
But it was Chris’ time to shine on Thursday when he became the sixth housemate to be chosen from this year’s series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
The radio DJ was named by show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, with comedian Seann Walsh in the final two of the public vote.
Chris took his seat for his exit interview and said: “I said on the Bush Telegraph this morning, ‘I’ve got this now, I’d really like to stay,’ before adding, ‘I’m disappointed that Matt Hancock is more popular than me !’
Former Health Secretary Matt made the controversial decision to appear in the jungle survival series this year.
Speaking of the West Suffolk MP, Chris said: “To be fair I really struggled with that, I hit him a bit. I separated Matt Hancock from Matt.
“We had to live with him and he won the stars and got us food.
“I have massive problems with Matt Hancock, but I have fewer problems with Matt.”
Chris said he felt like a “competition winner” going into camp, adding, “I never got over the surreality of it all. I was often the last to go to bed, and I’d go to the dunny, and I’d look back and be like, ‘Wow!'”
He added: “It’s such a privilege to be able to do this… It’s a real honor to be a part of it. I know I won’t appreciate until I’m out.’
