George Michael fans have been urging the UK government to allow them to erect a statue of the late singer outside his North London home.

The campaign comes a week after the Last Christmas singer died suddenly on Christmas Day.

So far, over 1,500 signatures have been penned to the petition and it is likely to keep on growing.

The campaign was launched by John Vasiliou on saying the statue was ‘in honour of the music and songs he wrote for all his fans’ and he plans to deliver the petition to the British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Commenting on the petition, Anna H wrote “George Michael was a philanthropist, a heroic spokesman for the gay community and an exceptional artist of his time.

“As the USA has their Hollywood walk of fame, Britain should honour this musical icon in their way, by erecting a statue in memory of the late George Michael … to pay their respects to a true British icon.”

The Wham star is also set to be honoured at the British LGBT awards later this year.
