It looks like George Michael wants to get back together and make some music with Wham! pop partner Andrew Ridgeley.

Michael enjoyed massive success when he teamed up with Ridgeley to form Wham! in 1981 but disbanded in 1986, leaving fans distraught.

The pair, now, both 51, set the dance floors alive with their biggest hits Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go and Club Tropicana.

Michael is currently promoting his new single Feeling Good, a cover of Nina Simone’s sampled 1965 hit. Q Magazine asked Michael what his biggest regret was.

“Splitting Wham!, says Michael. “Also, not asking Kate Moss to join Wham!”

Michael also reveals he spoke to Ridgeley recently, about a Glastonbury Festival appearance. According to Mojo Magazine, that meetup was earlier this year.

He (Ridgeley) came round and cooked,” says Michael. “We were talking about a Wham! reunion at Glastonbury in the fallow year.”

Wham! reunited briefly in 2012, at an after party following Michaels’ performance of Freedom at the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony.

“We had Muse there, the Spice Girls, Oasis with both Liam and Noel, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Kate Hudson and Doctor Who!,” says Michael.

“I think we ruined the official Olympics party, as anyone who was anyone was at my house,” says Michael. “Kate Moss and David Austin were the last two standing.”

Wham! released three albums and sold 25 million records in the time that they were together.

During his 33-year career, George has sold over 100 million records worldwide and has released six solo albums.
