Yesterday, George Michael insisted nobody would be interested in his odd behaviour if it wasn't for Elton John.

Today, Elton John has screeched "You what?":

He told a friend: "Did I crash George's car? Was I found slumped over the wheel in Hyde Park? No."

The friend said: "Elton has been sober for 14 years and only ever sought to help George.

"He's been there. He's had his problems and accepted responsibility. He never blamed anyone.

"Elton is shocked and very upset he's been dragged into this. He's getting on with his life.

"George needs to start taking responsibility for his own actions and stop blaming everyone else. It's a terrible shame."

It's good to hear that, despite George's accusations, Elton is "getting on with his life" - we had pictured him sat at home, unable even to ring Interflora.
