Huey Morgan has reignited his long-running feud with Damon Albarn after ten years.

The Fun Lovin' Criminals frontman branded the Gorillaz star an "egomaniac".

"When any band gets a lot of success there is a crossroads you come to, and you can take it like a man, or turn into a prat like the dude from Blur, Damon Albarn," Morgan told the Daily Star.

"He's an a**hole. He is like an egomaniac. He said something to me one time and he didn't even know me. He almost got a slap."

The pair nearly came to blows in a London nightclub in 2000 after Morgan took offence when Albarn - who had only met him a handful of times - attempted to hug him.
