Boy George has some famous friends

I'm A Celebrity contestant Boy George has some friends in high places after living a life in the limelight.

And it turns out that the 'Karma Chameleon' singer is the godfather of Big Brother icon Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace.

Aisleyne got her TV start back in 2006 when she joined the Channel 4 reality series and immediately ruffled some feathers and eventually finished in third place.

Since then, she's gone on to appear in Big Brother spin-off shows like Big Brother's Big Mouth, Big Brother's Little Brother, and Big Brother's Bit On The Side among other reality shows.

Former I'm A Celeb contestant Nicola McLean reminded us recently that Aisleyne has a close relationship with music legend and godfather Boy George.

Speaking to her Instagram followers this week, Nicola said: "You know my best friend Aisleyne? That’s her godfather. I think he’s going to be brilliant."

And her story tracks, too.

A few years back, Boy George shared a throwback photo of himself with baby Aisleyne to social media. Alongside the snap, he wrote: "Holding a bay @Aisleyne1 too cute!"

Aisleyne replied to the post: "Omg thank you for being my coolest kindest ‘uncle’ back then."

Boy George is Aisleyne's god father.

And that isn't Boy George's only link to the reality TV world, either.

The singer is also close friends with The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley, and is also the godfather of Dorit's daughter Phoenix.

In fact, when the series regular first appeared on the Bravo show, she revealed that Boy George lived with her, and he's pretty much part of the family.

Dorit 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," she said. "You kind of get more intimately connected, and that's definitely what happened."

Celebrities - they're just like us.

Boy George must have learned a thing or two from his reality TV friends, since he's already stealing the show on I'm A Celeb.

Viewers at home were in stitches when Boy George and Owen Warner met but Owen had no idea who he was, asking the singer his name as soon as he arrived.

Unfortunately, this wasn't Owen's only faux pas of the night, as he also got slightly confused about who property expert Scarlette Douglas arrived was.

It was Boy George who had to explain to him: "She's from A Place In The Sun"

Not understanding, Owen replied: "Whereabouts?", to which a stunned Boy George then clarified: "No, like the TV show."
