If we're top believe a word he says - and frankly, why not, as it's Christmas? - Princess Diana really fancied George Michael. Blimey, it's lucky she never actually paired up with him, because can you imagine how awful it would have been for her caught, the eyes of the world upon you as you lived in a loveless marriage with a man who could never really love you back?

“There were certain things that made it clear she was very attracted to me. There was no question.

“I think we clicked in a way that was a little bit intangible. It probably had more to do with our upbringing than anything else.

“She was very like a lot of women who have been attracted to me because they see something non-threatening. Maybe it’s because I take care of my sisters — women seem to like that.”

George was brought up over a restaurant in a dingy town in Hertfordshire while Diana was raised at a massive country house in the English countryside. You can see how the similar backgrounds would have made them click, can't you?

Simon, Bushey is not dingy. Ok it's got a Harvester but actually Harvester is the only place we can go for a meal now because of our tiny, loudly shouting, children. And, OK, the bit that's nearer Watford is a bit dingy. But some of it is quite nice and it doesn't even have a wine bar! So where George hung out in his teens I can't imagine. Maybe it was the Harvester? Maybe the wine bar has shut since he left and took his custom with him? I can only imagine him in Wine Bars somehow with Andrew and their hair and a couple of girls in pale pink clamdiggers.

I should apologise to the good people of Hertfordshire for casting unfair aspersions - I wasn't aware that you had access to a Harvester.

Having said that, surely a county totally covered by a cloud of semi-liquid benzene must be considered at least partially dingey...
