BOOKMAKERS have this morning suspended betting on Oasis re-uniting to headline music festival Glastonbury.

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher sent out a flurry of cryptic tweets last night, which lead to the decision.

Between 6.30 and 9pm last night the singer tweeted five separate messages spelling out the band's name before writing "Oasis", signed with "LG".

His messages on the social networking site came on the day that Glastonbury resale tickets were made available to the public.

Oasis came to an end in 2009 after guitarist and main songwriter Noel Gallagher quit the line-up, after years of friction with his brother Liam, the group's singer.

Liam said as recently as February: " There is no band. So, no, I won't be getting involved, anyway. If there is a reunion, I won't be in it."

It was thought that the notoriously fraught relationship between Liam and Noel was at a low ebb - it was believed they weren't even speaking.

46-year-old Noel said he has already been asked by a studio to make a biopic about the band, and is considering the offer, despite being estranged from his younger brother Liam.

He told The Sun: "People have seriously approached me about that. It's something that's very strange but very tempting."

The band were one of the biggest of the 1990s, selling well over 70m records and dominating the charts.

They had eight number one albums in the UK and a string of hits including 'Roll with it' and 'Wonderwall'.
