The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr has reportedly blocked Harry Hill from releasing a medley of the band's tracks.

The TV Burp star, who is releasing an album of comedy songs, apparently wanted to include a short selection of Smiths songs sung in the style of George Formby.

However, Marr has refused the comedian permission to release the parody, according to The Sun.

A source said: "He's already on his third choice of album title and now Johnny's had a sense of humour bypass."

Record label executives previously denied Hill's requests to call his album Sgt Pepper's Volume 2 or Bright Side of the Moon.
