boy-georgeFilming is about to start on a one-off tv drama following Boy George’s rise from obscurity to pop super-stardom.

Worried About The Boy stars Matthew Horne of Gavin and Stacey fame and Marc Warren from Hustle.

The Culture Club frontman will be played by newcomer Douglas Booth.

The show, part of BBC Two’s eighties season, covers the androgynous star’s early days as a cloakroom attendant to the release of hits like Karma Chameleon and Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?

Horne will play Culture Club drummer Jon Moss and Warren takes the role of Visage front man Steve Strange.

Nicola Shindler, from Red Production Company, said: “I was very excited at taking such an iconic British character and showing a different side to a story everyone thinks they know.

“The early Eighties magical setting of the Blitz Club and the New Romantics is fun, visual and new to TV drama.?
