Michael Barrymore has revealed that he is moving to Barcelona, ​​Spain, “to change his life for the better” in a TikTok video.

The former television presenter, 72, said he is already looking for the “villa of his dreams” in these idyllic towns.

Michael was previously one of the UK’s top stars, but his decades-long career ended after the death of Stuart Lubbock in 2001 following a party at his Essex home.

Captioning his post, he wrote: “Never be afraid to change your life for the better #michaelbarrymore #movingabroad.”

Explaining why he decided to move boats, Michael said: ‘Hey guys, yes, I’m moving to Barcelona. Now I am 72 years old and I realize that quality of life is the most important thing for me, so I am going to Spain.

‘I love the place. It is not the Spain I grew up with, there are all the tourist packages that we all know, this is continental Spain, it is incredible.

‘The culture there and the people and just the art and everything. I started looking for houses in Girona and the Catalonia area in March.

‘I’ve already flown a couple of times to look for places and see what I like. Once I decide which villa I like, I’ll probably go for Lloret de Mar, of course I’ll take Dave with me and of course I’ll take you guys with me.

So don’t worry, I’ll vlog everything and you’ll be with me throughout this story.

‘Until I find my dream villa, I’ll find out everything I can about it, download Duolingo and learn the language. I can not wait.’

This comes more than 20 years after a young man was found dead in his pool after a party at his house and Michael virtually disappeared from public life.

The TV presenter lost his job at ITV shortly afterwards in 2003 and was rarely seen again until he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in January 2006, managing to finish in second place.

A series of attempts to revive his career followed, but they were often overshadowed by the ongoing investigation into the death of Stuart Lubbock.

Between that year and 2019, Barrymore and others were arrested and questioned on multiple occasions, but no charges were ever laid and the star eventually sued Essex Police for wrongful arrest, although she withdrew her £2.4 million compensation claim after which a court ruled was for “nominal” damages.

But the TV personality has taken her career back into her own hands by building a loyal fan base on the social media app TikTok.

Michael posts several videos a day and has amassed 1.7 million followers, many of whom leave him messages of love and support.

Michael is no stranger to the stage, having performed sold-out shows before his career collapsed in 2001, when Lubbock, 31, was found dead in the pool of his Essex mansion after the star hosted a late-night party. .

He has always denied having knowledge of what happened.
