Gay singer George Michael’s partner has refused to take part in a gay celebrity Wife Swap episode with TV presenter Michael Barrymore.

Kenny Goss ruled out the switch at the Terrence Higgins Trust celebrity auction at Christies this week, where a dinner date with his partner was auctioned off.

He said, “it aint going to happen,” dashing the hopes of Mr Barrymore who had hoped they could join him on a one off special of the hit Channel 4 series.

Alternatives are being touted as Elton John with his partner David Furnish or ER actress Alex Kingston, according to reports.
