The former Oasis rocker has opened up about the last encounter he had with the Careless Whisper singer, who sadly passed away on Christmas Day 2016.
In a special interview with Matt Morgan, when asked what the last thing George Michael ever said to him was, the Wandering Star singer replied: “I was at a party at his house one night, and there was a lot of stuff going on in the back garden, and we were in this room with a DJ playing.
“There was a few of us in there and for some reason everybody kind of… one by one… left, and I was left behind this big fucking oak door.”
He continued: “And I was just about to leave and George came in. He didn’t see me. I was behind the door and he came in because someone was playing one of his tunes… and George came in dancing like George Michael.”
He concluded: “The last thing he would have said to me was, ‘see ya later mate'”.
Asked if he felt sad about losing the singer, he said: “Yes, good guy. Actually on the day that he died, we were on holiday and [my wife] – Sara is a HUGE fan. When push comes to shove, he – is for her – ‘it’ and she wept uncontrollably all day. “She was fucking in a mess.”
