Pete Burns speaks about dying in last ever interview on Channel 5 tonight


Pete Burns's last television interview airs tonight in which the music star speaks candidly about dying.

The Dead or Alive frontman passed away suddenly last month aged 57.

Pete Burns: The Last Interview airs at 10PM tonight (Tuesday, November 8) on Channel 5 and features clips from before his death as well as tributes to his life from friends and family.

In the show, the iconic Celebrity Big Brother housemate talks openly about dying following a stay in hospital.

He says (via DS): "It was a lovely feeling dying, I can remember being in the hospital, all wired up to tubes and thinking, if only you'd take these tubes out, it feels so nice, it felt so, it felt like being in a bath of velvet. It was such a nice feeling, everything felt so soft and floppy and I wanted to go."

The 'You Spin Me Round' hitmaker also opens up about ageing, revealing: "I'm not very comfortable with the idea, technically, of ageing, I'll never look forever young, but I'll look as best as I possibly can and I'll look surreal.

"I'm going to take the step in the next 10 years of surreality because I'll no longer look earthly. I don't wanna look like a 65-year-old geezer, you know, and I can't really see it happening."

The one-off special also includes tributes from Pete's husband Michael Simpson, his Dead or Alive bandmates and friends including Toyah Willcox and Pete Waterman, as well as his former fellow Celebrity Big Brother housemate George Galloway.

Pete Burns: The Last Interview, 10PM, Channel 5.
