He was said to be “wounded” with grief and headed off to the countryside.

He said: “I will be spending Christmas in the countryside with some friends. I can’t stand all the Christmas trees or lights around London.

“It makes me so sad, I just want it over and done with.”

And of the prospect of finding love again, he added sadly: “There will never be anyone ever again, that is the truth.”

He also vowed to never speak of the day he found the star dead.

He went on: “I don’t think I want another wound in my body. I don’t see the point in telling the worst day of my life to the world. George was one of a kind, I have lost a unique man.”
