Hawkins mocks Darkness reunion rumours

Justin Hawkins has laughed off rumours that The Darkness are planning a reunion tour.

Earlier today, a report in The Sun claimed that the singer has "buried the hatchet" with his brother and former bandmate Dan. It also suggested that the group had bonded following the birth of drummer Ed Graham's son.

However, writing on Twitter about the speculation, Hawkins joked: "I was startled to read that I've been spending time with a small child that I didn't know existed! Congrats Ed, I think...

"Neither Dan nor I were aware of a 'bitter feud' that has lasted half a decade. We've been at war for over 30 years."

He added: "Whoever paid this 'source' should really ask for their money back, because what they have bought is essentially horse s**t. If there was any truth in the Darkness reunion rumour then it wouldn't be a rumour.

"However, delighted to read that The Sun would be glad to have us back. Warmed my cockles no end!"

The Darkness, who scored hit singles with 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love', 'Growing On Me' and 'Love Is Only A Feeling', split in 2006.
