Michael Barrymore - Michael Barrymore Works In A Garden Centre. That Happened.

Capping off his remarkable fall from grace, Michael Barrymore now works part-time at a garden centre in Brentwood, Essex. Yes, Brentwood, Essex of The Only Way Is Essex fame. The 60-year-old Strike It Lucky host can be regularly seen stacking shelves and wheeling around barrows full of muck, though he doesn't ask for a dime in return from the Tomlins centre.

"I don't get paid for it. I help out because I enjoy gardening," he told a stunned shopper, according to the Daily Mirror, "People come over and wish me well. Sometimes I walk around with them to show them the plants. I stack the shelves, and often I'm wheeling around heavy sacks of compost." The comedian works at the outlet three days a week and has become something of an attraction for local shoppers, helping them with what to look out for and checking stock levels. 

Barrymore had a reasonably successful career in television before it all came to an abrupt end when the body of 31-year-old Stuart Lubbock was found in the star's swimming pool. Lubbock died during a party in March, while Barrymore was placed at the centre of the police investigation though charges were never brought against anyone attending the bash. 

He tried to kick start his career with Celebrity Coach Trip and Celebrity Big Brother.
