UK return for George Michael after illness

Singer George Michael will be back in the UK for Christmas after leaving hospital in Vienna, according to reports.

The former Wham! frontman was treated for pneumonia in Austria after falling ill in November while on tour for the first time in three years.

Doctors said he had to be treated in intensive care because of the "severity and extension" of the illness.

The tour began in Prague in the Czech Republic in August and saw him play 45 shows in 35 cities before his illness forced the tour to be cancelled.

He was due to play UK shows on his Symphonica tour until the week before Christmas.

Michael (48) spent a month in prison for drug-driving last year.
