I may not be as brilliant this time round, warns Phil Collins

PHIL Collins has warned his comeback may not see him match his solo career in which he became one of the top five musicians of all time.

Although he promises to be much better than anything recorded since 2000, Collins asks fans to be patient.

Collins said: “Remember how with You Can’t Hurry Love I made a record that was better than anything Tamla Motown ever put out and forced Diana Ross to change her name?

“This time round I’ll probably just eclipse a bit of the Motown canon, such as all the stuff by Stevie Wonder. I am still semi-retired, after all.”

He added: “And remember that thing I did of not requiring people to wear a jacket? Now I’ll probably require it a bit.”

Collins also hopes to restart his film career, but warned that if he was to star in a remake of The Long Good Friday it may end up being only as good as The Godfather.

GCHQ opens to public

GCHQ has opened its headquarters and outstanding collection of confidential data to the public for the first time. 

Anyone who pays the £1.50 entrance fee plus 50p Gift Aid donation is free to wander around the iconic circular building near Cheltenham, messing with whatever they like. 

GCHQ director Dr Helen Archer said: “We’ve been keeping ourselves a secret for too long. 

“We’ll set up a proper tour at some point with velvet ropes to keep the kids off the decryption engines, but for now it’s a free-for-all. 

“Visitors can choose to monitor Chinese state cables, watch drone footage of CIA biological warfare testing or read the truth about Diana’s death.

“Attendance at our lunchtime Meet the Spies! sessions in the subsidised canteen is soaring, and for a real thrill just type your own name in and read about all the times we’ve watched you for nothing but our own amusement.”

Father-of-three Bill McKay, visiting the facility with his children, said: “What is it? GHCQ? Never heard of it. 

“We only came in because it was raining.”
