The shocks keep coming. What a year for losing our best-loved stars. Now 53-year-old George Michael has been so sadly taken from us.

George came to prominence with his musical partner, Andrew Ridgeley, as the highly successful duo Wham in the 1980s!

A string of hits followed for the band before they parted company, most noticeably the all-time classic Last Christmas.

George then went solo and became a worldwide superstar.

He did have his personal problems, but his music was always of the highest quality. A short, but very intense life.

He was very gifted and talented, and 2016 has been a horrendous year for losing much-adored stars.

George Michael was up there with the very best of all time, but sadly this was his last Christmas among us.

However, from now on, every Christmas - perhaps for eternity - we will listen to the sounds of his Last Christmas.
