Global singing sensation and icon George Michael has died on Christmas Day, aged 53.

Police are describing the death as "unexplained but not suspicious".

They said paramedics attended his home in Goring in Oxfordshire at 1.42pm today - where he was declared dead at the scene.

His publicist announced he has "passed away peacefully at home" at 11pm last night.

The full statement read: "It is with great sadness that we can confirm our beloved son, brother and friend George passed away peacefully at home over the Christmas period.

"The family would ask that their privacy be respected at this difficult and emotional time. There will be no further comment at this stage."

George Michael has sold more than 80 million records worldwide in a career spanning four decades - but his life in recent years has been dogged by controversy, including when he nearly passed away in 2011 from illness.

George made an in the round appearance at Sydney's Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Party in 2010 and resided in Potts Point for a substantial part of recent years.

Here is his show from Mardi Gras thanks to chicagojes as media were barred from filming the performance even though the room was full of camera phones. lol

RIP George, you will be missed.
