George Michael's boyfriend tried to revive him for an hour

Fadi Fawaz spent an hour trying to revive George Michael.

George, 53, died suddenly at his home over Christmas and his boyfriend Fadi's frantic phonecall to the emergency services has now been revealed, in which he revealed his partner was "cold and blue" in his bed.

He told the operator: "It's George Michael, I think he's dead. He's in bed."

"He's cold. He's blue and very stiff.

"I've been trying to wake him up for the last hour but it's not possible. He's gone. He's blue. He's cold."

When the operator asked if it was an expected death, he replied: "No, no, no. I've been waiting for him to wake up for hours and he wouldn't so I went to wake him up and he was gone. He's not there."

He was then then told not to disturb the body until the death was verified.

Fadi previously told police that he slept in his car on Christmas Eve (24.12.16) before discovering George the next day.

Meanwhile, police recently ruled out foul play in their investigation into the star's death, even though the exact cause of death has still to be established after the first postmortem proved inconclusive.

Fadi - who dated the singer from 2012 until his death- had been interviewed by police on two occasions since he discovered George's lifeless body but was told by police that he is not part of their investigation.

George's cousin recently admitted he suspects the singer died of an accidental drugs overdose.

Andros Georgiou claimed the iconic musician returned to taking "hard drugs" towards the end of his life, but is adamant that George did not commit suicide.

He said "Hard drugs had been back in his life.

"I just think he took too much of something, mixed with antidepressants and other drugs he was on - with alcohol. I think his heart just stopped beating."
