Morrissey to read Morrissey book

Morrissey has reportedly been released from a US hospital

Morrissey fans will get two for the price of one after actor David Morrissey agreed to read the audiobook version of his namesake's memoirs.

The former Smiths singer has topped the UK best-seller list with his book, Autobiography, which sold just short of 35,000 copies in its first week.

It sees the famously private chart star disclose details of how his first relationship with a man came in his 30s and grumble at length about the perceived injustices of a court battle over royalties involving his former bandmates.

The 457-page book also includes his brushes with famous names including writer Alan Bennett.

The unabridged digital download, voiced by the Walking Dead star David Morrissey, is released on December 5.

The actor has previously spoken about his plans to make a film based on the autobiography of eccentric rock star Julian Cope who shot to fame with Liverpudlian post-punks The Teardrop Explodes.

Morrissey himself is reported to have been released from hospital in America, although it's unclear how he ended up there in the first place.

The singer had whiplash and other injuries, but according to True-To-You.net has been allowed to leave a Los Angeles hospital now.

The website reported: "Morrissey has now been discharged from Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles following treatment for concussion, whiplash and an arm injury.

"Morrissey would like to thank the medical staff at Cedars-Sinai for their 'outstanding level of care and attention'."
