Sir Ian McKellen is backing George Shelley to win 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!'

The 'Lord of the Rings' actor has revealed he's become good pals with George and his Union J bandmates since meeting a showbiz event and thinks the 22-year-old hunk could go as far as to be crowned King of the Jungle.

Speaking to Joe Swash and Laura Whitmore on spin-off show 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! NOW!', he shared: "I met Union J at the Pride of Britain awards about a year ago and I went to see them on stage and we've hooked up since."

Asked how he thinks George is getting on in the jungle, he added: "He's doing brilliantly. Of course he looks gorgeous but you know. George has inner strengths, mark my words - I think he'll go right to the end.

"He hugs everybody. He is stronger than he seems. He may seem a little weak but there is a man in there and he'll do well.

"As long as he's smiling, he'll be fine."

Meanwhile, the 76-year-old star ruled out ever appearing on the popular reality show himself.

He said: "I am not going into any jungle. If I did I'd have a pillow with me. I'd be no good because I'd have a pillow."
