Happy Mondays set to reunite with their original line-up?
UPDATE: A spokesperson for the Happy Mondays has said that they have no immediate plans to reform with their original line-up.

Happy Mondays are to set to reunite with their original line-up, according to tabloid reports this morning (December 5).

The band have reunited twice before, most recently in 2004, but without founding members Mark Day, Paul Davis, Rowetta Satchell and Paul Ryder, the latter of whom had sworn he wanted nothing to do with the band again when they split for a second time in 2000.

However, according a report in The Sun, a reunion of the band's original line-up and a full tour is being planned, with a documentary also set to filmed about the band’s reunion.

A source told the paper: "After the success of The Stone Roses reunion, there's a real clamour to get the group back on the road and document it properly. Shaun and his brother Paul have a notoriously patchy relationship but they're willing to sort things out for the sake of the band."

They continued: "Happy Mondays have had offers from film companies, including Film4 and Sky, who want to follow them for the reunion. There will be gigs next summer and a re-release of their classic album 'Pills 'n' Thrills And Bellyaches'. A DVD will also be released of the comeback shows and the documentary."

The band have released five albums during their career, with their most recent effort 'Uncle Dysfunktional' coming out in 2007.
