George Michael: 'The Smiths Are Reforming'
George Michael has told the Guardian that the Smiths are reforming.

The singer, who was formerly a member of Wham! in the 1980s, during which the Smiths were also in operation, took part in a Q&A with the Guardian this weekend (via Gigwise). The final question of the Q&A was, "Tell us a secret," to which Michael responded: "The Smiths are reforming." On that bombshell, and with no further elaboration, the interview was over.

The Smiths themselves, who split up back in 1987, have consistently played down rumours of a reunion.

Elsewhere in his Guardian Q&A, George Michael revealed that watching "Coronation Street" is his guiltiest pleasure, and that he wants Paul Newman, who died in 2008, to play him in the film of his life.

A joke or a promise?
