“I just want to say hello, so hi.”

Boy George also discussed his upcoming 60th birthday on the show, saying he feels “much more confident at this point” than he was around the age of 18.

When asked why, he said: “I think breathing more. I literally mean like meditation, all the stuff, all the work that I’ve done on myself over the years but particularly this year, because I went back into therapy and really got a chance to look at myself.

“I’ve never had a year off.

“For me it was the luxury of self-discovery. Getting back into my craft.

“I make art as well, basically being creative, which I feel I’m really lucky to do what I do.”
