BOY George’s new single from his first album in 18 years has been filmed in a Charlton church which is kitted out as a boxing ring.

The Karma Chameleon singer, who grew up in Eltham, shot the majority of new release King of Everything at the Benefice of Charlton St Thomas’ Church.

The 52-year-old former Eltham Green School pupil shot to fame as the front man of Culture Club and returns to his Greenwich roots for his new album This Is What I Do.

The icon said: "The video is pretty much a direct narrative of the song. We shot the bulk of it in a local gym where I grew up in South London.

“We used all real people and went for character to give the clip a filmic quality.

“Our mum was a lady we encountered while location scouting and our wife and dog Paris are the director Mike Nicholls' neighbours.”

The video tells the story of a boxer and his disappointed wife and is written by Boy George and longtime writing partners John Themis, Kevan Frost and Richie Stevens.

It is due to be released on October 28 on his own Very Me record label followed by UK tour dates. For tickets visit
