George Michael: Desert Island Discs highlights

In 2007, George Michael was Kirsty Young's castaway on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs.

He described his life as having felt "self-destructive", going on to talk about love, loss, his sexuality and drug use.

Michael did not choose any of his own songs for his castaway list, but recounted the tragedy which inspired Jesus to a Child.
