LATEST: CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION stars Jorja Fox and George Eads have been invited to rejoin the show after being sacked following a salary row.

Bosses at the show's American network CBS felt the couple had staged a joint hold-out for a payrise when they didn't show up for work last week (ends16JUL04) and they were both fired.

Eads has since publicly apologised, insisting he simply slept in.

Fox has already been rehired, while Eads is still in negotiations to rejoin the cast.
