George Michael has been arrested after his car smashed into a shop in the early hours of the morning.

The Faith singer, who recently extended a stay in Sydney because he was having such a good time, was caught on CCTV mounting the curb in his Ranger Rover and ploughing into Snappy Snaps in Hampstead, north London.

The shocked former Wham! star then got out of his vehicle waited for police to arrive.

He was not breathalysed and insisted to officers he had not been drinking. However, he is thought to have been tested for drugs at a north London police station.

No drugs were recovered and the 47-year-old star was released on bail until August.

The incident is the seventh time Michael, who openly admits to being a cannabis user, has been in trouble with police about his driving.
