George Michael Appearing On Tv Quiz Show

GEORGE MICHAEL is making an extremely rare TV appearance this Christmas (DEC03) - on British quiz show WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE.

The FAITH singer agreed to join a host of other stars - including Irish singer RONAN KEATING and POP IDOL judge SIMON COWELL - on a special Christmas Day (25DEC03) version of the hit show, with all proceeds going to the celebrities' favourite charity.

A source on the ITV programme says, "George has been out of the public eye for a long time now, so we're very lucky that he's given up his time for the show."

And the source reveals George particularly hit it off with Keating when they filmed the show in London on Wednesday (10DEC03) - and even discussed plans for a possible collaboration.

They say, "They really had an amazing amount in common, so they decided to continue their evening together. George and a friend joined Ronan and his wife for a meal at ODETTE's. They talked late into the night and decided they should work together musically in the future."
