Harry Hill has been forced to drop a parody Smiths medley from his new album after guitarist Johnny Marr refused to give permission.
The TV Burp comic had recorded versions of the Smiths greatest hits in the ukulele style of George Formby as a hidden track on the forthcoming Funny Tunes. It was even advertised in the track listing.
But now, just over four weeks before release, the track – which mixed Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now, Girlfriend In A Coma and Panic – has had to be dropped.
