Emma confirmed she and Matt were expecting their third child in December last year (15), less than a month (Nov15) after it was confirmed he would be reuniting with his bandmates to play a series of dates in the U.K. and Ireland.

The British TV presenter being in the final stages of her pregnancy has given the Year 3000 rocker a scheduling headache, as the group's tour begins next month (May16).

However, Matt insists that he will not have to rush off stage to be with his wife, as he's been told her specific due date is before the tour begins on 11 May (16).

"She (Emma) is due before we go on tour," he tells BBC breakfast TV presenters Dan Walker and Louise Minchin. "I am promised that she is due before we go on tour. We'll be fine, I'll just be popping home a lot to do that type of stuff."

Busted fans have been waiting for more than a decade to see the band's original line-up back together, as the band split in 2005 after lead guitarist Charlie Simpson's departure.

The other two members, Matt and James Bourne united with British pop-rock contemporaries MCFly to form MCBusted in 2013, but it was not until late last year the trio patched up their differences to enable a full reunion.

Speaking about how they decided to get back together, Charlie says, "Me and James hanging out together again and these guys came over to my house a couple of times. Through that we figured there was a creative common ground."

The long wait for Busted's return has seen lovers of band scramble to get their hands on tickets for one of their 20 scheduled gigs.

Matt says, "We were blown away by the response. I don't want to brag but we sold out 100,000 tickets in an hour."

Busted's Pigs Can Fly tour begins at London's SSE Arena and finishes at Birmingham's Barclaycard Arena on 4 June (16).
