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

Meanwhile, the star has briefly returned to screens over the years.

He appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories in 2019, and briefly starred on This Morning last year.

Speaking to the Mirror in 2013, Michael said he was planning on making a comeback with some acting work.

He told the newspaper: “I was offered something yesterday. It is actually for an acting part. I think the role will surprise people. It’s dark.

“When I read the script I was excited and got a good feeling about it. Acting’s my comfort zone. That’s what I grew up doing, but comedy took over.”

Michael also uses Twitter to connect with fans.
