Boy George told Lorraine Kelly at the time: “My mum’s good she’s back home now. She was in hospital for two days.

“Luckily it was not corona related, so that was good, and it wasn’t what we initially thought, so that was [good].”

He added: “My mum’s 82 – it’s not the best place for her to be.

Our hearts prayers and love go out to Boy George and his family right now.

“But having said that, the people at Greenwich Hospital were so great to her, and I managed to speak to her on the phone and that was really funny.”
