Channel 5 are to air a new documentary about the life of George Michael this week.

The Double Life of George Michael will delve into the late singer's turbulent past throughout his career.

The two-hour special will examine the last years of the pop icon, concluding with his death on Christmas Day in 2016.

It will also look at the contrast between his supposed inner demons, and his much-loved public persona.

The programme will air on Thursday (June 21) at 9pm on Channel 5.

Following the documentary, a repeat of The Nation's Favourite George Michael Song will be shown at 11.05pm.

The special follows last year's Channel 4 documentary Freedom, which was in part directed by the late singer himself. Watch a clip from that film below:
