Christine McVie has expressed an interest in permanently re-joining her old band Fleetwood Mac.

McVie, who left the band in 1998, said to The Guardian: "I like being with the band, the whole idea of playing music with them. I miss them all. If they were to ask me I would probably be very delighted… but it hasn't happened so we'll have to wait and see." This September McVie joined Fleetwood Mac onstage at London's O2 Arena, to perform 'Don't Stop' with the band.

On her reasons for quitting the group, McVie told The Guardian. "I think I was just music'd out. I suffered from some kind of delusion that I wanted to be an English country girl, a Sloane Ranger or something… and it took me 15 years to realise that it's not really what I wanted at all."

Her ex-husband, John McVie, was recently diagnosed with cancer, leading Fleetwood Mac to cancel their Australian and New Zealand tour so he can seek treatment. When asked how he was doing, she responded: "really good. He's having his treatment in LA right now, but they caught it really early so he should be up and running in a couple of months."

Bookmakers recently stopped taking bets on Fleetwood Mac headlining Glastonbury Festival in 2014. Ladbrokes were previously offering odds of 1/4 on seeing the band headline the Pyramid Stage in June next year. However, following an increased period of speculation and Fleetwood Mac's recent UK tour dates, the betting was suspended.
