Friends star David Schwimmer is something of a superfan of ’80s icon Boy George, it has emerged.

The ‘Karma Chameleon’ singer, who is gay, appeared with David on BBC One’s The One Show last night, with the latter tuning in via video link.

David, 54, was asked a question about his TV show Intelligence, but instead said: “First of all, I have to say I’m a massive fan of Boy George. I just want to say hello, hi.

“There’s talk of Danny Mays playing my dad”

On his upcoming biopic, The Boy said: “There’s talk of Danny Mays playing my dad. there’s talk of some really interesting people to play my mum – I was thrilled!”

Asked if he’ll make a cameo, the star – whose new single ‘Best Thing Since Sliced Bread’ is out now – replied: 2I don’t know. Maybe I could play a bouncer.”
