You can pretty much guarantee that no one sitting on the M1, on Thursday afternoon (May 16) would have attributed the traffic jam to George Michael falling out of his car at 70mph. But, that’s exactly what happened, and the WHAM star has been kept in hospital.

He was found on the road by paramedics at the scene of the accident after tumbling from his range rover ON THE MOTORWAY. His spokeswoman said: "Following the traffic accident on Thursday, we can confirm that he is still in hospital. We are keen to stress it's purely as a precaution for observation.” Despite the seriousness of the accident, Michael is said to only have suffered minor injuries, which is somewhat of a miracle. "He did suffer a couple of bumps and bruises to the head and that's why they are keeping him in - to keep an eye on him. He is doing better. He is making good progress and is looking forward to getting out." What the spokesperson should address is exactly how exactly George Michael is alive and not the opposite: dead.

Don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of George – his performance in Extras was funny – but if you fall out of a car on the motorway, at 70 miles-per-hour, you should be dead. Not morally, geometrically. Anyway, we’re glad he survived this ordeal, and we wish him the best in his recovery. Piece of advice: stay in the car until it’s completely stopped.
