Singer George Michael says he's scrapped his drug-taking lifestyle and now gets his "highs" from watching Coronation Street. The North London resident says he made the lifestyle choice after brushes with death and the law.

The 51 year-old has told the Big Issue, he has not smoked marijuana for 18 months. He says he instead enjoys binging on episodes on Coronation Street because it's more of a laugh.
