George Michael narrowly escaped death last year after contracting a serious bout of pneumonia, but it seems he is well on his way to making a full recovery, judging by pictures of the singer enjoying his sunshine holiday this week.
Fadi Fawaz, George Michael’s boyfriend, posted a picture of them cuddled up on his Twitter page with the caption: “Isn’t he cute?!”
In the picture, George Michael is seen smiling widely while hugging Fadi Fawaz, who is also beaming with delight.
In another close-up shot of the pair, they are seen grinning from ear to ear as they don sunglasses to shield themselves from the bright sunshine.
While George Michael has not disclosed where he and Fadi Fawaz are holidaying, he did reveal they are still in the “southern hemisphere”.
And it seems the sunshine is doing wonders for George Michael’s recovery, as he has been keeping his followers updated with his progress on his Twitter page.
George Michael wrote earlier this week: “People, I’m excited….just finishing a ballad that I think is going to make you think my eighties self has been re-born hich I suppose it has in a way 🙂
“Even my tracheostomy scar is healing nicely in the sun, was looking a bit Bride of Chucky for a while.
“Spoke to doctors before I came away and they told me my recovery is way quicker than can usually be expected so I’m happy as Larry!”
George Michael recently revealed he is hoping to find time to play the 14 dates he originally shelved on his Symphonica tour last year after he was taken ill.
The singer said: “Realistically, I can’t see my vocal cords being ready till the summer.
“But then I have to think about people losing out if they are on their summer hols. So, September seems most likely.”
