Abba's Benny Andersson has hinted at an Abba reunion - despite the band vowing never to re-form.

In an interview with The Times, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny, the male half of the spandex-clad Swedish pop quartet, offered fans a glimmer of hope.

Asked if they would consider a one-off performance that could be beamed around the world, Benny said: "Yeah, why not?"

He continued: "I don't know if the girls sing anything any more. I know Frida (Anni-Frid Lyngstad) was in the studio," adding: "It's not a bad idea, actually."

Referring to the last song on the Super Trouper album, The Way Old Friends Do, Bjorn quipped: "We could sing The Way Old Folks Do."

The band members, who split in 1982, previously dismissed any suggestion of a reunion, insisting they would never take to the stage again.

The group whose hits include Dancing Queen, Take a Chance on Me and Money, Money, Money sold 370 million records.

Benny and Bjorn are promoting their new musical Kristina which opens at London's Royal Albert Hall on April 14.
