George Michael

George Michael is being kept in hospital by doctors to monitor head injuries he received in a car accident last week. It has now emerged that the singer, travelling as a passenger, apparently fell out of the car while being driven down the M1 at 70 miles per hour.

A spokesperson for Michael said yesterday: “I can confirm that George remains in hospital but purely as a standard precaution for observation because he suffered some bumps and cuts to his head. But he’s making good progress, he’s fine and he’s really looking forward to getting home”.
