Michael seemed in high spirits after being delivered home by bodyguards and his partner Kenny Goss, telling photographers he was ‘fine’, and it felt ‘fantastic’ to be free.

The sorry star was jailed last month for driving whilst under the influence of drugs, after he crashed his range rover into a Snappy Snaps shop front in North London.

But now it seems he’s desperate to turn his live around, and paid tribute to friends and fans in an impromptu speech outside his Highgate home.

‘I want to be out. I want to go out,’ he said, making a brief appearance to admire the sunny skies. ‘You will get sick of me from seeing me about.’

‘So if you could all take a few pictures, I’d really appreciate it,’ he continued. ‘Fantastic, what a beautiful day. I just want to say thank you to everybody who supported me in there.

‘It’s been inspirational and I’m coming out here on my own so that you’ll realise that I just want to start again. Do you know what I mean?’

And it seems prison could even have inspired the outlandish singer, with friends saying the expierience has left him ‘reinvigorated musically’ and determined to get his career back on track.

‘Ooh, by the way… I’ve just thought of a really good idea for a song,’ he told photographers as he stepped back inside. “It’s going to be nothing to do with prison.”
