Default Was Boy George the biggest loss the show ever had?

It's no secret he had signed a deal to enter but the court stopped him from entertaining just before the series started.

Boy George has himself said it is a decision he is thankful for as the show wasnt the best route for his career.

So the answer is do we think we lost out on a potential best housemate ever?

Maybe not on Boy George's level but she's much more famous than most of the CBB Housemates we've had over the years.

I reckon she would've been a fantastic HM

We had so many great potential housemates
Whitney was in Talks but walked away last minute, Bobby Brown and Bobbi Kristina agreed to go in then quit days before,

Dog and Beth both had their Visa rejected

Charlotte Church held talks but decided against it

Whitney was a big miss. Guess she couldn't be without her drugs.

Mess did they actually nearly have Whitney

And which series was Boy George signed for? I'm sure he's said he would be interested in the US version, so here's hoping he can get on that at some point!

She was in deep discussion but when it came to signing a contract she decided against it then made a massive comeback a year or so later
