Andre Ridgeley has signed a deal to write a book about life as one half of Wham! as well as his friendship with George Michael.
Wham! sold close to 30 million records worldwide from their formation in 1981 to their break-up in 1986. Their hits include Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, Careless Whisper and Last Christmas.
The book will look back at when the pair first became friends as school children in the 1970s but mainly focusing on Wham!’s five-year “rollercoaster of success” taking in “the scrapes, the laughs, the relationships, the good and the bad”.
