Chas and Dave split!

While the pop establishment mourn the news that someone has quit the Sugababes (is it Mutya?) it’s been confirmed that Chas & Dave are to split.

The cockney double act have called time on the band following the death of bass player Dave’s wife, who lost her battle to lung cancer in July.

Chas, 69 and Dave, 64 had performed their arsenal of global smashers including 'Snooker Loopy', 'Ain’t No Pleasing You' and 'Rabbit' for over 30 years and recently had a resurgence thanks to prestigious support slots with The Libertines.

It’s not all doom and gloom though, Chas (vocals, piano, guitar) is going to carry on in the new guise of Chas & His Band and will start touring from 2010.

Kind of puts the whole Michael Jackson news into perspective. RIP C&D.
