“I like Alex. He"s great. But I love the drag thing. I love Roxanne," the Daily Star quoted him as saying on TV show Chatty Man. George added that he was particularly impressed with Reid during his stint in reality show Big Brother.
He said: “There was one point where Vinnie Jones was being nasty and Alex went: 'Do you want a cup of tea, mate?" I thought I need to be more like that. It"s a brilliant way to handle people. Like everyone else, I originally thought: 'This guy"s probably an idiot." But straight away I thought: 'No, actually he"s a very sweet bloke." The right man won."
Even George planned to enter the Big Brother house but was banned owing to a court order that put him on probation after a jail term for falsely imprisoning a rent boy. However, he added: “I don"t think I could have handled it."
