Michael was one of TV’s favourite entertainers during the ’90s.

However, things changed when Stuart Lubbock was found dead in Michael’s pool at his £2million home in Essex.

Mr Lubbock was found unconscious in the pool following a party, and had sustained internal injuries, suggested he was sexually assaulted.

Michael has always maintained his innocence, insisting he had no involvement in the death.
