First there was McBusted, but now are Busted getting back together WITH Charlie Simpson?
Everyone this is NOT a drill, but our favourite pop-punk band from our childhood might be reforming. And we’re screaming like 13-year-olds all over again.
Now, we know there was McBusted, and that was AMAZING – six handsome lads jumping about and getting sweaty on stage together? Yes please – but there was always a Charlie Simpson shaped hole that needed to be filled. And it seems like it might finally be.
According to The Sun, a sources said: ‘Busted are re-forming by the end of the year and Charlie is part of the band again. I’ts amazing because Matt and James have always said there’s more chance of pigs flying than Charlie coming back to Busted.’
(Why are pigs making their way into the news so much this year?)
‘But this is something that has been secretly discussed for a number of months – it was important the three guys felt they could work together again and get along as friends.’
In 2011, Charlie made it prertty clear that he never, EVER wanted to rejoin Busted, after leaving in 2005 to focus on a more serious music career with Fightstar, saying that he wanted to make it ‘unequivocally clear that I have no interest whatsoever in rejoining Busted and I never will. But with McBusted’s success of you know, a sell-out arena tour and album success, could Charlie be re-thinking his decision?
Well, we’ve got our fingers crossed that he has, and here are 5 reasons why…
1.) What I go to School for
We get to dig out our school ties and white shirts again! And actually, you know what? The preppy look is bang on trend for autumn so working a pleated skirt would be something Gok Wan would even approve on.
2.) Air Guitar
We’re not going to lie, but we’ve not been hitting the gym as much as we probably should have done recently….OPPS. BUT, with Busted back on the scene and all those are guitar jumps in the air that we’ll be joining along with, those boys will have our fitness back in shape in no time.
3.) Friends forever
We hate seeing people fight or not get along, so the fact that Charlie is reforming with the Matt Willis and James Bourne surely means that whatever happened in the past is water on the bridge and they’re all having slumber parties now where there’s no doubt that Charlie is plaiting James’ hair while Matt has a face mask on.
4.) More music
With the trio getting back together, we’re hoping so more amazing new music in our lives. Sure we still sing along Year 3000 like it was the year 2000, but with McBusted’s stuff making us jump around like a bunch of kangaroos, it’d be pretty swell if they could work their magic and release a 2015 Air Hostess.
5.) Double trouble!
Don’t get us wrong, we LOVED McBusted, but with Busted getting back together, that means McFly are also back on the scene. And that just means two times the amount of gorgeous guys with instruments that we can get excited over. Good to have you back boys!
C’mon Busted – make our wishes come true!
