Boy George’s vocal coach bravely reveals his secret

“My name is Christopher David Mitchell. This is the secret I’ve kept for six years”. With these opening words Boy George’s vocal coach tells of his crash from West End career to depression, and his final triumph, being open about his life-changing illness. For six years Christopher, a 33-year-old former model and singer signed to a top agent, told no one about his condition: a stoma and ileostomy bag as a result of ulcerative colitis. Working with Christopher and leading doctors at St Mark’s, the National Bowel Hospital, in Harrow, we’re reaching a wide audience, helping others facing the same life-threatening disease.
