It's emerged during the last half-hour that the self-styled 'King of Pop', Michael Jackson, who died suddenly last night, WILL honour his commitment to complete 50 shows at London's O2 Arena next month.
The singer died last night in Los Angeles after suffering a fatal heart attack, but a spokesman said this morning that Jacko loves his UK fans, and did not want to disappoint them.
Rastus Boogie III, head of the Michael Jackson fanclub in the US, told us:
"Michael loves his UK fans, and does not want to disappoint them."
He went on to say that, despite the entertainer's by-now rigormortisised state, he would do his utmost to perform at the O2 Arena, and that the shows, if managed sensitively, could still be a success.
Jermaine Jackson, who featured in the Channel 4 show, Big Brother in 2007, said:
"He was a big fan of Jade Goody. The two were so much alike."
