For many years, Martin Kemp, 60, has been heavily rumoured as being the male alongside Shirlie Kemp, 59, in the Last Christmas video. The hit festive song was released back in 1984 and featured singers George Michael, Andrew Ridgeley and backing singers Pepsi DeMacque and Shirlie.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, host Kate Garraway quizzed the pair about the classic festive video.
Much to the presenter’s surprise, Martin and his wife revealed he was never actually in the clip.
Shirlie revealed that her cameo was in fact with a different boyfriend at the time.
“I had a boyfriend, he was an actor,” the singer began to explain as Martin jokingly interrupted: “Shirlie was two-timing me with an actor!”
She continued: “He was an American actor, but everyone thought that was Martin but it wasn’t.
“So, let’s say that now, Martin wasn’t in the Last Christmas video.”
The Spandau Ballet star went on to say: “But you’re right, it is an iconic piece of 80s video and it’s absolutely wonderful”.
The pair went on to pay tribute to late George, who died on Christmas Day in 2016 aged 53.

A few months after his death, authorities said he died of natural causes, including heart conditions and fatty liver.
Wham! had been together for five years, selling over 28 million records and 15 million singles.
Reminiscing about their time together, Shirlie said she thought about George “everyday”.
“There’s not often a day that goes by that those people you lost and loved aren’t in my thoughts.

“But Christmas, I thank him really, because he gave me some of the best Christmas’ I ever had.
“I’m so grateful for that, because he knew how to create magic and always invited us around his house.”
The mother-of-two added George wouldn’t want them to be sad over the festive period when thinking of him.
The late singer is who brought Martin and Shirlie together.
In 1988, they went on tie the knot at a lavish wedding in St. Lucia.
They share two children together; Harley, 32, and Roman, 28.
The latter is a host on Capital Radio and has also appeared on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
