44-year-old Fadi was the one to discover the body of 53-year-old George on Christmas Day, after he died of heart failure.

In a Sunday People interview, Fadi said: “There will never ever be a lover in my life after George. I do not have anyone in my life and there will never be anyone ever. That is the truth.”

A few months ago, fans were saddened to learn that a planned tribute concert to George, organised by Esther Rantzen, had been shelved.

Esther said at the time to The Mirror: “There will no longer be a tribute concert because his family said no.”

“It was a real shame as I’d have loved to celebrate his music and give the fans a chance to say goodbye – and it would have been to benefit his favourite charity, too.”

George’s estate said: “We don’t usually comment on private or business matters.”

And fans are still paying tribute to him, leaving gifts and flowers in the garden outside his home almost a year after his untimely death.
