Face of tragic pop leg­end found in chip shop car­ton

Sunday Sport - - NEWS - By SI­MON DEAN si­mon@ sun­daysport. co. uk

GE­ORGE Michael is not dead – he lives on in a smear of MUSHY PEAS that came with Darren Ken­sit’s chippy fish sup­per last week.

Darren had just pol­ished off his take­away treat at his home in Crewe, Cheshire, and was tidy­ing up when he found the face of the for­mer Wham! singer in the pea car­ton.

The 41- year- old ulphol­stery de­signer said: “There was a shape in the pea residue, down the side of the poly­styrene cup.

Buck­ets

“At first I thought it was the face of Peter Sut­cliffe, the York­shire Rip­per. But then I looked a bit closer and it came to me… it was Ge­orge Michael!”

As a gay, Darren is a huge fan of Ge­orge Michael’s mu­sic, and he wept buck­ets when the singer dropped dead of a heart at­tack on Christ­mas Day at his home in Gor­ing- on- Thames, Oxon, aged 53.

Darren said: “It was a great com­fort to see Ge­orge in the pea juice. It was a bit like hav­ing him back in our lives.

“I’ve writ­ten to Ge­orge’s old man­age­ment team to see if they’d like to take the car­ton on tour. But I’ve not heard back yet.”

Mean­while, it was re­ported last week that Ge­orge’s fu­neral has been de­layed as the coroner is still await­ing the re­sults from tox­i­col­ogy tests on his body or­gans, to as­cer­tain if drug in­ges­tion had played a fac­tor in the singer’s death.
