Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have reunited in the studio.

The Beatles legends sent fans into a frenzy about a reunion of the iconic group on Monday (20.02.17), as the only two surviving members, but it appears McCartney was just laying down some bass guitar on Starr's forthcoming solo album.

Alongside a photo of the pair, Starr, 76, wrote: ''Thanks for coming over man and playing Great Bass. I love you man peace and love. (sic)''

Starr also shared a picture with musician Joe Walsh, with the caption: ''And look out Joe W came out to play. What a day I'm having. Peace and love. (sic)''

The pair are working on the 'All You Need Is Love' drummer's follow-up to 2015's 'Postcard From Paradise' and it's the first time McCartney has recorded with his band mate since 2010, when he provided bass for 'Peace Dream' and 'Walk With You' on Starr's 2010 record 'Y Not'.

It comes after McCartney - whose last releases were 2015's 'All Day' with Kanye West and 'FourFiveSeconds' with Kanye and Rihanna - was dubbed a ''really talented magician''.

The 74-year-old musician was recently spotted showing off his trickery at a party in Los Angeles, and onlookers have described his act as ''really good''.

One fellow party-goer said: ''Sir Paul is a really talented magician. He often performs tricks during any showbiz bash he attends. He's actually really good, people are always so shocked.''

It has been claimed that The Beatles legend is thinking about expanding his career prospects and making his magic tricks available for hire.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: ''He even mentioned that he would have to start hiring himself out for parties.''
