George Michael Released From Hospital
Singer flying home for Christmas after a month battling pneumonia...
George Michael has been released from the Vienna hospital where he has spent the last month fighting pneumonia, it has been revealed.
The 48-year-old pop star is reported by Austrian broadcaster ORF to have been discharged this morning - and is apparently flying back to London this afternoon.
George was rushed to the private AKH Hospital when he was taken ill on November 20, and it had initially been feared that he might have to stay there for months.
But he'll now be able to celebrate Christmas at his home in Hampstead.
George has been forced to cancel a swathe of gigs on his Symphonica tour - including 14 in the UK alone. They are expected to be rescheduled.
