Gorgeous George Hamilton

Gorgeous George c. 1960

"You're sixty six years old, you've finally got your head together
and your ass is falling off!"

George Hamilton
(b. 1939)

I can't believe George Hamilton has quit the jungle!!

I've really enjoyed watching I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, and George was my absolute favourite. He's always laughing, he's lovely, funny, very easy going and his stories are fabulous. I particularly like his relationship with Kim Woodburn which was a joy to watch.

He told Kim he doesn't need or want to win it, he would rather one of the younger ones (Stuart) won as he is at the end of his career and they are at the beginning. When he came out he told Ant and Dec he'd like Gino to win. I'm pleased about that as I really like Gino. I do absolutely love Kim and she would make a great winner.

On the plus side, the show has massively changed the public perception of him which is fantastic and well deserved. I'm sure he'll be very much in demand.

George starred in over a hundred films and TV shows, the most well known being Godfather III, Evel Knievel, Love at First Bite, Crocodile Dundee and Dynasty, but was more well known for his perpetual tan, his sharp dressing and his way with the ladies. Here is a gallery dedicated to 'Gorgeous George' and (some) of his women.

I have to agree I will miss the touch of class the Gorgeous George brought to the jungle.. Go he was a dude in his day .. and how Beautiful was Britt Ekland..If we only realised how lovely we all are in our youth. I am sure there would be fewer "issues".
Well it will have to be me future second husband to win Gino all the way x

Ooo- has he, they're all quitting this year.
I've not really got into it this year, couldn't stomach all the bugs.
Wow, he's gone through a lot of women, all beautiful.
