McFly and Busted have hinted at plans to form a supergroup with a press conference announced for Monday (November 11).

The bands have invited the media to hear their announcement in London next week, suggesting they have a joint project planned for 2014. The invite to the press conference includes the line, "The ultimate pop supergroup is coming!"

However, the 2013 incarnation of Busted will be without Charlie Simpson, who is not rejoining bandmates James Bourne and Matt Willis at the event. Responding to a tweet about the press conference, Simpson confirmed that he will not be a part of what the two groups have planned.

It was Simpson's decision to quit the band and focus his attentions on post-rock band Fightstar in 2005 that led to Busted splitting up. Fightstar went on hiatus in 2010, with Simpson now focusing on his solo material.

McFly and Busted performed together as McBusted at McFly's 10th anniversary shows at London's Royal Albert Hall earlier this year. The supergroup performed Busted songs 'Year 3000' and 'Air Hostess', as well as McFly's 'Shine A Light' during the concert.
