George Michael has lost 7kg since quitting drugs

Singer George Michael has been undergoing counselling for his cannabis use, and as a result has stopped eating junk food and lost a large amount of weight.

He says, “I’ve been in counselling for substance abuse for nearly 10 months, and part of the advantage of that is I’ve dropped about 7kg. All my old clothes fit me!”

The 48-year-old singer also discussed his time in prison – where he spent four weeks last year for driving while under the influence of drugs into a photography shop in north London – claiming it was a “logical experience” because of where he had got in his life.

He explained, “I felt I had a bill to pay and I thought that prison was a logical conclusion to a very dark chapter.
