BBC Introducing Berkshire presenter Linda Serck claimed the Leeds band, who last played the twin festivals in 2009, would be on this year’s bill during an on-air discussion on BBC Radio Berkshire, saying: “I know because I interviewed them recently, and they told me.”

Ricky Wilson and co. have been among the names circulating online in the last couple of months, and featured in our Reading & Leeds rumours round-up last week.

No acts will be confirmed until 7:15 this evening, but internet rumours last week suggested The Cure would be one of the headliners this year, while Foo Fighters possibly dropped a hint over their rumoured headline spot by posting a recording of their debut Reading show from 1995 on their website at the weekend.

Reading Festival 2012 takes place in Richfield Avenue, Reading on 24-26 August.

Leeds Festival 2012 take place in Bramham Park, Wetherby, Leeds from 24-26 August
