Harry Hill forced to scrap Smiths medley from new album

Representatives of Johnny Marr have been in touch

Harry Hill has been asked to remove his medley of songs by The Smiths from forthcoming album ‘Funny Times’.

The track was originally due to feature Hill covering the likes of ‘Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now’, ‘Girlfriend In A Coma’ and ‘Panic’.

However, the comedian’s spokesperson has now confirmed that Johnny Marr‘s representatives have been in touch and asked Hill not to include the songs.

‘Funny Times’ is due to be released on November 8. It also features ABC‘s Martin Fry on a cover of Burt Bacharach and Hal David‘s ‘This Guy’s In Love With You’.
