Peter Hook has said that he hopes to make peace with his former New Order bandmates.

The 55-year-old bassist claimed that he is no longer "determined to f*** [the band] over", after Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert decided to reunite without him.

Speaking on Sky Arts' Jo Whiley Music Show, he commented: "I would like to get on with my life to be honest.

"I have come to the conclusion that it would be better to bury the hatchet and sort it all out and get on with it. Unfortunately the other side, don't seem to be doing that."

Referencing REM's recent split, Hook continued: "It was quite interesting the way Michael Stipe said he was proud the way they had done it and of their legacy.

"If there is one thing I'm not proud of, it is the way New Order have done it. It's very, very sad actually.

"I suppose in a way it helps you understand the process people go through together when they are in a group. It's like a marriage. You are together for so long you literally do drive each other crazy."
