Boy George told The One Show presenters he is “much more confident at this point”, nearing 60, than he was when he was around the age of 18.

"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.
