The BBC has announced that it is changing the broadcast date of the next episode of Who Do You Think You Are?, starring Boy George, to accommodate the episode of Our Girl that was missed due to Wimbledon overunning at the weekend.

Boy George's episode of the celebrity family history show was originally due to broadcast on Monday 23 July, but will now be showing on Wednesday 25 July at 9pm on BBC One.

Boy George, whose real name is George Alan O'Dowd, shot to fame in the 1980s as the lead singer of Culture Club and has had a long career as a singer, songwriter, DJ and fashion designer.

His episode of Who Do You Think You Are? will see him visiting Ireland to trace his ancestry and discover why his maternal grandmother was found wandering the streets of Dublin as a child.

He will also uncover tragic ties to one of the most turbulent periods of the country's history.

Series 15 of Who Do You Think You Are? has proved as popular as ever, with Olivia Colman's episode attracting 3.9 million viewers.

The remaining episodes of the series, starring Shirley Ballas, Marvin Humes, Robert 'Judge' Rinder and Jonnie Peacock, will air on Mondays as normal.
