Scarlette Douglas has been defended by her A Place In The Sun co-star Leah Charles-King following her conversation with Boy George about his conviction last night. The presenter said her co-star Scarlette was simply “asking what everyone’s thinking” after the Culture Club star branded the chat “inappropriate”.
While doing chores in the jungle, the 34-year-old property expert told George she didn’t know the full story, but that she had heard he was involved with “some guy in handcuffs and a radiator”.
He immediately insisted it was “not true,” adding: “It’s not true, no radiators.”
Scarlette replied: “Oh, just handcuffs,” which prompted the singer to add: “But the radiator bit wasn’t true, but thanks for bringing it up.”
She went on to say: “Sorry, it wouldn’t surprise me if that was a fake story.”
He explained: “Sometimes these things, they go into the ether, and people keep saying them and they become folklore.”
George added that if it was true, he “wouldn’t be working now”.
She chimed in: “I don’t even know what the full story was, I just remember hearing handcuffs and radiator.”
Boy George replied: “Good job I know what the full story was. The best way to explain my thing, Scarlette, if I beat someone up there would be photographs. And there were none, because it didn’t happen.
“So when you beat someone up, the first thing the police do is take a photograph and they show them in court. There were no photos because I didn’t do that. But I did do one thing. I did handcuff him, yeah.
“Because I’d handcuffed the guy I’d already assaulted him. So, when I said ‘I did it’, I thought, I’ll tell the truth, they’ll let me go home. I went to prison for four months. I was on tag for four months as well.”
He added: “Do you know what, people in prison were amazing to me. They loved me.”
In the Bush Telegraph after their chat, the Culture Club star fumed it was “inappropriate” for her to bring up the story.

He said: “Scarlette blatantly talked about my court case. I thought it was inappropriate what she did, actually.
“I thought she shouldn’t have said what she said to me. And I thought I handled it really well as it’s a big sore point for me when people say things like that.”
The Karma Chameleon hitmaker was jailed in 2009 over the attack on Audun Carlsen.
He was ordered to serve 15 months but was given an early release after four months.
A spokesperson for George said the incident happened during “a psychotic break 15 years ago whilst in the midst of a well documented drug problem”.
“Not only has he been a pillar of society ever since, but he also remains sober to this day.
“He apologised publicly on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories four years ago and we are very proud of him for his rehabilitation.”
