Guitarist Serge Pizzorno denied the rumours outright on Twitter, stating: "Incoming message..."To all our beautiful fans out there, rest assured that there is no way were are doing a f***g Snowman cover. Sergio x"

Noel Gallagher and Editors were also recently named as possible performers of a new version of the song.

Channel 4 confirmed plans to make a new version of the classic 1982 film last December. It was originally stated that 'Walking in the Air' would be replaced with a new original song.

'Walking in the Air' was performed by Peter Auty in the original film, while Aled Jones scored a big hit with his version in 1985.

Nightwish and The Maccabees are among other bands who have attempted cover versions in the past.
