George Shelley: I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!
November 2015.


The legendary Lord of the Rings star phoned into last night's I'm A Celebrity…. Get Me Out Of Here NOW! from Los Angeles to share his support for George.

"I met Union J when they were at the Pride of Britain Awards about a year ago and then I went to see them on stage and George and I have hooked up a bit since."

Ian went on to say that George is doing "brilliantly" so far, and joked: "And, of course, he looks gorgeous!"

He added: "George has inner strengths, mark my words. I think he will go right to the end. Can you see him hugging absolutely everybody? He's got a lot of love in him, has George. He is stronger than he seems. He may seem like a willowy youth but there is a lot of strength there."

I'm A Celebrity continues at 9pm on ITV.
