Boy George wants to date Simon Cowell

Boy George has fantasised about dating Simon Cowell.

The 54-year-old singer - who declared he was "militantly gay" in 2006 - has admitted he finds the music mogul "very sexy" and often dreams about hooking up with him.

He explained: "I've always felt Simon might be part of my future. I have this weird feeling that somehow we'll either have dinner together or maybe we'll become lovers. I love watching him on his shows. I think he's very funny and he's very sexy. I'm in love with him."

But, although the 'Voice' mentor enjoys watching the talent show boss on screen, he has admitted he's glad he chose the BBC One singing programme over Simon's 'The X Factor' - although he claims he was offered the chance to join the ITV panel - because he can talk more freely.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "'The X Factor' was talked about but I am really glad that I got this gig -- it's the best gig. It feels like you can really contribute.

"One of the things I was worried about was how much influence I would have and I have been surprised.

"You are really involved. That suits me. You want to do the best job you can and walk away saying, 'I tried, I didn't dial it in, I was passionate'. That's how I feel."
