It won’t be well-organised like The Rolling Stones
Sir Ray Davies
While Sir Ray, 74 recently revealed surviving members, younger brother Dave, 71, drummer Mick Avory and himself have been working on a new album, he also spoke about the band performing together again.
He says of the Waterloo Sunset hitmakers getting back together for the first time in two decades: “It won’t be well-organised like The Rolling Stones.
“You must praise The Rolling Stones for being great at publicity and a great band, great at organising their careers.
“And Mick Jagger has done an incredible PR job and it’s kind of inspiring to see them doing it.
“But The Kinks will probably be playing the local bar!”
Sir Ray Davies has hinted to a Kinks reunion – but his brother has denied the claims
But Dave appears to be in the dark over the prospect of The Kinks gigging again, posting on Facebook: “We haven’t discussed shows or anything else at the moment.”
He does at least confirm they have talked about making new music, saying: “Me and Ray have spoken about the possibility of us working on a new album.
“Ray has a few songs he wants to finish. I have three or four songs I’ve written with Ray.
“We’ve been talking about it for some time now.”
Lenny Henry joked that he looks like Denzel Washington now he’s slimmer
HAVING shrunk into a shadow of his former self lately and showing off a much slimmer frame, Sir Lenny Henry now reckons he looks like a Hollywood film star.
At a recent bash attended by Day & Night the 59-year-old referenced his three-stone weight loss by saying to the audience: “I know what you’re thinking – Denzel Washington is much better looking in the flesh!”
The comedian, right, started shedding the pounds in 2014, having discovered he was “a little bit diabetic”, and previously put his newly acquired svelte physique down to “eating broccoli and not much else”.
Whatever you’re doing Lenny keep doing it because it’s obviously working.

• RIHANNA is the latest high-profile celebrity to hit out at Donald Trump’s much-criticised child separation policy.
The Bajan beauty, 30, took to social media yesterday to support a San Diego federal judge who ruled that all immigrant children detained and separated by the Trump administration must be immediately returned to their families.
Alongside a screen-grab of the judge’s ruling, Rihanna wrote: “Breaking news. Hopefully this includes the 1,500 children misplaced.” RiRi is not the only celeb to lash out at the President over the scandal.
Day & Night revealed on Saturday that Latina icons were especially angered by his plans – with JENNIFER LOPEZ calling it a matter of “basic human rights and decency” and EVA LONGORIA stating that “families belong together”. Trump has since performed a U-turn after widespread international condemnation.
Jane McDonald is in no hurry to get married
• SHE’S been engaged to musician boyfriend Eddie Rothe since 2011 but singer Jane McDonald is in no rush to tie the knot after admitting her track record “isn’t great”.
The 55-year-old, whose Cruising With Jane McDonald show recently won a Bafta, admits of Eddie, 64: “Marriage is on the back burner.
“My track record isn’t great, let’s be honest. And we’re very happy as we are. But I will do it one day.” The singer has already experienced two failed marriages.
Bizarrely she first dated former Searchers drummer Eddie in 1980 for six months but both went their separate ways before getting back together three decades later.
