The Masked Singer UK's latest series came to an end over the weekend with musician Charlie Simpson being crowned the winner, but the singing star has already hinted it won't be long before he's back onstage again.

Simpson was unmasked as Rhino on the quirky ITV celebrity singing contest but is best known for his early noughties pop rock career as a member of Busted.

Busted has sold more than five million records and won two Brit Awards but sadly parted ways back in 2004. However, Simpson has now hinted he could soon be reuniting with bandmates James Bourne and Matt Willis.

Chatting in a recent interview on ITV's Lorraine, the singing star revealed there's a chance fans will see the trio join forces again to celebrate a special milestone.

"So, there may be some plans," Simpson teased. "It is the twentieth anniversary of Busted this year. So, yes. I’m sworn to secrecy again… but there may be some stuff in the pipeline."

Willis and Bourne teamed up with fellow pop-rock group McFly back in 2013, forming the supergroup McBusted. The duo later reunited with Simpson in 2015 and released Busted's third studio album, Night Driver, the following year.

At the end of 2019, the group embarked on a hiatus to pursue solo projects but if what Simpson says is true, fans could soon see the band back together once more.
