By George! Now you'll have to be the fat one, Boy George tells Kent impersonator Matt Endersby
by Hayley Robinson
Boy George has been showing off his dramatic weight loss to
But Matt Endersby, who works as an impersonator of the
1980s pop icon, won't be going on a diet any time soon.
The 45-year-old, from Milstead in Swale, was lounging
around a hotel pool when he saw the images of the Karma
Chameleon star in a national newspaper.
The photos showed Boy George - real name George O'Dowd
- boasting a slim, chiselled face... a far cry from his
bloated former self.
Married father-of-two Matt said: "I did get a bit panicky about
it to start with. People messaged me saying, 'Have you seen him,
are you going on a diet?'.
"I even sent Boy George a text message saying, 'Thanks mate, now
I'll have to go on a diet'. He texted me back saying, 'No, now
you'll have to be the fat one'.
"It's not prompted me to go on a diet. There's not many places
you can grab a healthy salad at 3am when you're out in London.
"I'm going to be the fat Boy George. People say I look more like
him now because his face is thinner.
"I don't think it will make a great deal of difference to what I
do because I get asked to do a lot of Boy George from the 80s and
he didn't look like he does now, then.
"I supposes if it did start to affect my bookings then I'd have
to think about going on a diet though."
