The Housemartins - The Housemartins set reunion criteria

The Housemartins will reform if The Smiths get back together.

The 'Caravan of Love' hitmakers - who split in 1988 after five years together - famously had a pact never to reunite, but have now slightly relaxed their stance safe in the knowledge their strict criteria is unlikely to be met.

Former bassist Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, said: '' We've changed it to, 'We'll only reform if The Smiths reform first and they won't reform until the royal family abdicates', so I think we're safe on that one.''

Norman is now best known for his DJing but admits it has taken until now for his 13-year-old son Woody to be impressed by his work.

He said: ''He's just beginning to realise now he's 13 that his dad does have a cool job.''

And the 50-year-old star - who also has four-year-old daughter Nelly with wife Zoe Ball - is hopeful his son could one day follow in his musical footsteps.

He added in a radio interview: ''He's just got a bass off his godfather, so obviously that's a tradition in the family I'd like to continue. Bass players traditionally are the most well grounded, intelligent members. And they get the best chicks. Always.''
