George Michael is seen dining out with friends in what is believed to be the last photo taken of the singer.

The singer’s death at the age of 53 was announced last night with the suspected cause being heart failure.

In the final snap of the Careless Whisper star taken on September 14, Michael is seen eating out with friends in a restaurant in Oxfordshire.

The reclusive singer, who found fame as part of Wham! in 1981 and had a string of hits including Last Christmas, seemed to have put on weight.

Michael reportedly passed away peacefully at home in Goring on Christmas Day.

His publicist announced in a statement: ‘It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period.

‘The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage.’

The troubled star, whose real name was Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, had struggled with substance abuse in the past with several rumoured stints in rehab.

He once told The Guardian: ‘People want to see me as tragic with all the cottaging and drug-taking… those things are not what most people aspire to, and I think it removes people’s envy to see your weaknesses.

‘I don’t even see them as weaknesses any more. It’s just who I am.’
