New album, McBusted, and a wedding: Charlie Simpson discussed it all on ITV's 'Lorraine.'
Charlie Simpson has finally opened up on a few issues that have been plaguing him for years - namely, his relationship with his former Busted bandmates Matt Willis and James Bourne, who have since formed supergroup McBusted. Speaking this morning on ITV's Lorraine, the now solo singer and guitarist was happy to chat about his life lately.
On having recently re-discovered his friendship with Bourne and Willis, Simpson said. "I hadn't seen them for a long time, six or seven years, and it's been really nice. Almost rebuilding our relationship so I'm pleased - everyone is in a good place, everyone is enjoying doing what they're doing and it's all good."
However, Charlie made sure to point out that his 2005 departure, subsequent folding of the band, and seven years of not seeing Matt and James wasn't due to hard feelings between the group members. "There was never any animosity between me, Matt and James. They're doing the supergroup now and I'm really happy for them," he revealed.

Mcfly and Busted: two guitar pop camps unite for a UK tour. Can this work?
At first we thought it was a hoax now we're doing the Busted jump for joy at the news that early noughties boybands McFly and Busted are finally teaming up to bring us an entire UK 2014 tour under the portmanteau McBusted.
Back In The Day: Busted & McFly Were Rivals In Their 2004 Heyday.
McBusted will see the Mcfly line-up of Harry Judd, Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Tom Fletcher unite with two of the three original members of Busted: Matt Willis and James Bourne. Charlie Simpson, whose departure for heavier rock in 2005 caused Busted to split, will not feature in McBusted but he has wished his former bandmates success.
Who hasn't dreamed of the day we'd get to year 'Year 3000' and 'Five Colours In Her Hair' on the same stage?
Suppress your squeals! Calling all fans of early millennial guitar pop: two of your favourite bands, Busted and McFly, are combining to form one powerful supergroup. The inventively named McBusted will be touring the UK next year with tickets on sale this Friday from 9pm.

Tom and Giovanna had a special message for their fans.
Tom & Giovanna Are Expecting A Baby.
The pair took advantage of the upcoming Autumnal holiday to announce Giovanna's pregnancy in a novel and rather adorable way. The short ditty shows the couple, who recently married, gathering up pumpkins, playing with their cat and carving away busily whist the track plays.
Tom Fletcher's wedding speech was probably a little different to the stuttering start-stop effort of the average Groom. The McFly singer married his girlfriend Giovanna Falcone last May, though waited until this week to post a video of his wedding speech, or should that be wedding song?
Yep, you've guessed it, the singer-songwriter who's had seven No.1 singles decided to sing to his bride after claiming he was too nervous to deliver a speech. Before launching into the track (to the melody of various McFly songs), Tom said, "I don't have any idea how to write a good speech but I do know how to write a song, so I hope this isn't cheating my way out of it too much." The 15-minute ditty began with Fletcher crooning, "Recently I've been, having a wedding, I've married this girl, who's out of this world, believe me." Was it as sickly as it sounds? Probably.
Nevertheless, Fletcher managed to get through it while entertaining his guests, including best friends Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones. He sang, "Thanks to my best men, you are the best friends, that I know I will ever have, you're more like brothers, sometimes lovers but we won't tell them about that.We've been together for what feels like forever but I'd do it all again and again, but we're only getting started and I know McFly will never end."
