He added: "I ruined part of my vacation when I was on Spring Break with the kids, my phone blows up.

"Seven hundred text messages, 400 emails. Everybody's trying to FaceTime me to see, and I fooled everybody."

Michael – who has a legion of fans who adore his iconic smile – then reassured viewers: "Gap Nation, I'm here to stay. I'm not going anywhere. April Fool's."
