I’m a Celebrity contestant Boy George has a famous goddaughter who is also well known for starring in reality TV.

The ‘Karma Chameleon’ singer, 61, has been entertaining viewers in the Australian jungle since he entered on November 6.

His Buddhist chanting, tea-time tantrums and evident dislike of new campmate Matt Hancock has had thousands of gripped viewers in stitches.

Though some fans took issue with him labelling fellow contestant Charlene White as ‘controlling’.

It’s now been revealed that Boy George also has a showbiz goddaughter in Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, 43, as reported by The Sun

The Big Brother icon got her big break on the Channel 4 reality series in 2006 and quickly caused chaos in the house.

She eventually finished the series in third place.

Since then, she has appeared in a number of Big Brother spinoff shows such as Big Brother’s Big Mouth, Big Brother’s Little Brother and Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, among others.

She also featured on the series again as a ‘house guest’ in 2015 after Channel 5 acquired the rights to broadcast the show.

Ex I’m A Celebrity star Nicola McLean, 41, recently told her Instagram followers that Aisleyne has a close relationship with pop legend and godfather Boy George.

She said: “You know my best friend Aisleyne? That’s her godfather. 

“I think he’s going to be brilliant.”

In 2015, Boy George shared a throwback photograph of himself with a baby Aisleyne on Twitter.

He captioned the picture: “Me holding Aisleyne as a baby!”

Aisleyne replied to the post, writing: “My beautiful ‘uncle’ George.”

Interestingly, that isn’t Boy George’s only link to reality TV circles, either.

The singer is also a close friend of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley, 46, – and is also the godfather of Dorit’s daughter Phoenix.

When Dorit first appeared on the show, she told people that Boy George lived with her and that he was ‘pretty much’ part of the family.

She explained: “I think when you stay in someone’s house and you live in their lives and you’re playing with their children and you see them as a couple, it’s different.

“I mean, he sees us before bed, he sees us first thing in the morning, and it’s not like this lunch date per se.

“You kind of get more intimately connected, and that’s definitely what happened.”

An unlikely – but very funny – partnership has even formed between Boy George and Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner in the jungle.

When they met, Owen had no idea who Boy George was, immediately asking the ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ hitmaker his name.

Unfortunately for Owen, he again slipped up when he didn’t know who property expert Scarlette Douglas was.

Boy George explained to him: “She’s from A Place In The Sun.”

Still confused, Owen replied: “Whereabouts?,” to which a shocked Boy George clarified: “No, like the TV show.”
