Latest on Michael Jackson’s death

Wow, so I have a few days off to go to Glastonbury and the biggest entertainer on the planet dies, aged just 50. Unbelievable. Michael Jackson in 1993 (Rex)

I bought tickets to one of Michael’s O2 Arena dates and was really looking forward to seeing him, as I saw him live in Australia in 1996 and it was by far the best concert I’ve ever been to. I’d gone in with high expectations but he completely blew me away.

I’ll keep on top of the story of his untimely death as it develops – the latest news is that pills have been seized from Michael’s mansion, and that his mother has been granted temporary custody of his three children.

Meanwhile, we’ve compiled celebrity tributes to Jacko, led by Madonna who said she “can’t stop crying over the sad news”. We’ve also got his life in pictures, starting out as an 11-year-old in the Jackson 5.

Michael led a largely unhappy life – including a tempestuous relationship with his father and, in his adult life, allegations of child abuse – but in turn he brought happiness to millions. There will never be another like him.
