Douglas Booth has said he was nervous about kissing Mat Horne for a forthcoming Boy George drama. The 17-year-old actor plays the Culture Club singer in BBC Two drama Worried About The Boy, while Gavin And Stacey star Mat plays drummer Jon Moss, who had a relationship with Boy George. Describing the kiss, Douglas said: "It was fine, you know, it was very professional and no tongues, it was absolutely fine." He continued: "Before it, because I've never done a screen kiss before let alone kissed a guy, so I was like, 'where's this going to take me, what's going to happen?'. "Before the scene I was a bit nervous, but once you do it, it just kind of happens. You're George in the scene, you do it, and then you're Douglas. I don't feel like I've kissed Mat Horne, George has kissed Jon Moss." Douglas, who was born a decade after Culture Club topped the charts with Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?, added: "I wasn't hugely familiar with their music because I was born in 1992 so I missed the whole heyday but since filming I love it." Worried About The Boy is on BBC Two on May 16.
