Busted say there was NO animosity despite brutal break-up and 10 years apart

Pop band Busted have insisted there was "no animosity" between them despite a brutal break up and 10 years doing their own thing.

Charlie Simpson, Matt Willis and James Bourne spoke to This Morning’s Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford about their time together, their homecoming and their new album.

The threesome reunited in 2015 after Charlie left the band back in 2005, forcing their break up after two No.2 studio albums.

But when compared to the brother band Bros, whose tumultuous time together was featured in a hit documentary, the band said there was "no animosity" between them when they came back together.

James said: "With us we’re a different dynamic to Bros. All creative relationships go wrong if they’re not in a certain way, but with us communications has been a big thing when it goes well.

"Our communications were at our best for this album."

Charlie added: "We went for a while without seeing eacho ther but when we got back together, there was never any animosity to get over.

"We just needed to get to a point where we are on the same creative page, and when that happened, it was all good."

For Matt, he has a simple wish, which is to get a No.1 album having had three Top 5 albums, bit never one getting that top spot.
