Busted fans were getting excited this morning at new rumours the band could reform with original member Charlie Simpson.

It's been ten years since Charlie left the band but according to The Sun, he's now open to a reunion tour with Matt Willis and James Bourne.

A source said: "Busted are re-forming by the end of the year and Charlie is part of the band again. It's amazing because Matt and James have always said there's more chance of pigs flying than Charlie coming back to Busted."

The insider said Charlie would continue to be part of band Fightstar at the same time. Hmm. So far Charlie hasn't commented so we'll file this one under 'we don't know if it's actually true but let's keep our fingers crossed'.

Charlie left Busted in 2005 to focus on Fightstar and his solo career. Matt and James went on to collaborate with McFly and form supergroup McBusted.

When we caught up with Charlie last year, we asked him if he was fed up being asked why he wasn't part of McBusted. He told us: "It doesn't bother me, it was inevitable I would be asked about it. I'm glad they're having a good time, I went through a long time of not speaking to them [Matt Willis and James Bourne] at all so it was nice to get back in contact when they rang me and said they wanted to do it. It's good man, everyone's having a good time."
