Pop star George Michael has denied his civil partnership ceremony with partner Kenny Goss was called off over reports he "cruised" for sex with strangers.
Michael and Goss recently marked their 10th anniversary as a couple
"It's never been an issue between us," he told Channel 4 daytime presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan.
The 43-year-old phoned the programme to deny reports of an encounter with a man on London's Hampstead Heath.
He said the "wedding" ceremony had been put back over fears of "intrusion" by the press.
"With all the rubbish I've had to put up with in the last six months, we wouldn't get a small private wedding, which is what we want," he continued.
"I wanted something small and quiet, but I don't even think we'd get away with that at the moment."
The former Wham! singer begins his first UK tour in 15 years this September.
Extra concert dates were added in April after early ticket sales exceeded expectations.
