Pop star Boy George, recently released from jail for imprisoning a rent boy in his London apartment, is to be locked up again, but this time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, reports Daily Star. The former Culture Club singer, 48, will join other celebrities in the next season of the popular British reality series and says he is the happiest he has ever been and that his stint in jail made him change for the better.

“I had prison coming to me. It wasn’t that big a surprise, I kind of knew it was going to happen,” he reveals. “I just thought I’m going to make this work for me. I got a job quite quickly and worked in the kitchen,” he adds.
