Review! I’m A Celeb Boy George looks unrecognizable in an unearthed snap taken after his 2009 jail stint while under house arrest with girlfriend Vicki McKellar (right).
He claimed he was high on cocaine and having a psychotic episode and was now clean and sober.
On the night the photo was taken, the singer was bald, no beard, and wasn’t wearing one of his signature hats or flamboyant makeup.
It was shared by Vicki McKellar, who was George’s pen pal while he was in prison and showed up in a sparkly ‘666’ t-shirt during a party celebrating his release.
Vicki said, “He wore a devilish 666 t-shirt to highlight his prison ordeal.”
“George had said his May 11 release date was a time for celebration, so he held a soiree at his home in Hampstead, north London, which is now for sale.

“George’s 48th birthday was coming up and he invited me along with his friends and family.
“I was standing spreading bread for the guests when he came up to me and asked, ‘Why are you only spreading one side of the bread? We are not in prison now.”
She continued: “He had a mark on his ankle as, despite being released from prison for good behavior, he still had to remain under house arrest for six months.
“After his 7 p.m. curfew, he wasn’t allowed to leave his house.”
Playwright Vicki said she and George danced in the kitchen and sang Buddhist songs, as well as his own record Bow Down Mister with Jesus Loves You.
She said: “George was standing right on the edge of his living room and he was like, ‘Can I stand here? Will I be dragged back to jail if I surrender a toe?’
Latest project: George is currently enjoying an appearance on the ITV show I’m A Celebrity
Vicki, from St Albans, became George’s biggest fan after seeing him perform Do You Really Want to Hurt Me on Top of the Pops in September 1982.
She said: “I remember staring at the TV screen, mesmerized. I fell in love, or as much as one can be in love at six years old.’
“When Karma Chameleon hit number one a year later, I met George for the first time.
“It was at Brent Cross Shopping Center that the whole band signed their first book When Cameras Go Crazy. George signed my book and I almost passed out when he kissed me.
“The next time I met George, I was outside the Red Bus recording studios. I pushed my way through the crowd of fans and George told my mum she looked like Elizabeth Taylor! She was so excited!’
Vicki was at Snaresbrook Court with his brother Kevin when the pop icon was convicted of assaulting and falsely imprisoning male escort Audun Carlsen.
Assault: In December 2008, Boy George was convicted of assaulting and falsely detaining Norwegian male sex worker Audun Carlsen (pictured) during a ‘psychotic episode’.
‘It was such a shock when George went to jail,’” Vicki said.
Vicki revealed she wrote to George while he was serving his sentences at Pentonville in London and Highpoint North prison in Suffolk, and he wrote back a touching letter thanking her for her unwavering support.
She said: “I sent George a book called Only Love is Real: Soulmates Reunited by Doctor Brian Weiss. I knew George was spiritual and that he would love it.
“George wrote back to me straight away and I still treasure that letter to this day.”
Vicki said: “George had said his May 11 release date was a time for celebration so he held a soiree at his home in Hampstead, North London, which is now for sale (pictured).
In his letter, Boy George wrote: “Dear Vicki. I bless you for your kind letter and support throughout this surreal chapter. Thank you also for the book which I will add to my extensive library.
“It’s a perfect gift because I read a lot, prison is the perfect opportunity. Please trust that I am in good spirits and looking forward to the future.
“God bless you and lots of love to you and all you love. Bottom up! G.’
Boy George and his brother Kevin invited Vicki to their mother Dinah’s house for Sunday roast.
She said: “There George played me a demo of a beautiful song called ‘Lights’ which he wrote about his friend Paul Starr who sadly died of AIDS.

“I don’t think it was ever released, which is so sad because it really deserved to be a big hit.”
She said: “After the trial, George’s brother Kevin was devastated, as was I, that George had been jailed.
“A friend asked Kevin on Facebook and he accepted the request. He started texting me and ended up asking me out.”
She said they went to George’s Hampstead mansion, which is currently on the market for £17million, and it was there Kevin confessed he was in love with her.
Vicki said, “Then we kissed…very passionately! I had to break it off here because there was no way I wanted things to continue at George’s house while he was in prison at the time.
“But Kevin and I were together for a year before our relationship fell apart.”
Vicki is a co-creator of The Marilyn Conspiracy, a play which received rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe and will now be staged in a London theater next year.
Vicki laughed at George’s ’80s pop star singer and friend Marilyn.
She said: “No, my play is not about him! But about Marilyn Monroe and the tragic last days of her life and why I firmly believe that she was murdered.
“It’s wonderful how George has transformed his life since those dark days in prison and I’m so proud of him
“Now I’m praying George wins I’m a Celebrity 2022 and is crowned King – or Queen! – of the jungle.’
As Boy George sells his lavish Hampstead home, the Culture Club still sings at the Church of the Poison Mind… or are they victims of their own success?
Having originally left the band in 1986, lead songwriter George enjoyed a successful solo career following the release of debut single Everything I Own the following year. To date he has released 12 solo albums while also working as an established DJ.
Famed for his androgynous sense of style and heavy use of makeup, George only spoke publicly about his sexuality in 1995 when he published his autobiography Take It Like A Man, in which he confirmed he was gay.
Moss, the band’s drummer and George’s secret lover in their early years, formed Heartbeat UK after Culture Club broke up. He also dabbled in the acid house scene of the late ’80s before releasing music with the bands Promised Land and Yeah in the ’90s.
He is a father of three with ex-wife Barbara Savage, who also owns an estate near George, north London.
After the band broke up, bassist Craig attempted to establish himself as a solo artist with the release of debut single in 1988. In 1988 he released a solo single I’m A Believer. However, the track failed to chart in the UK Top 40 and was his only release outside of Culture Club.
In the ’90s, Craig started his own dance label, SLAMM Records, and executive produced hits from Mr. & Mrs. Smith and Mankey.
He also performed with Kid Creole and the Coconuts.
After leaving Culture Club, Hay formed This Way Up to moderate success and released the singles Tell Me Why, If I Can’t Have You and Louise in 1987. The debut album Feeling Good About It was released in the same year.
In 1989 he moved to Los Angeles and began writing and developing music for emerging artists before turning to compositional work.
To date he has worked with the legendary Hans Zimmerman and is responsible for the music of the TV shows Cracker and The Dead Zone.
