A story in The Sun suggested that the group’s reunion show at last year’s Reading and Leeds Festivals weren’t one offs and they have more gigs planned this year.

"Although there are no signs of new songs, the boys have realised that they can take a nice payday by playing each summer,” a source told the paper.

"They bagged more than £1million for Reading and Leeds in 2010 and, although they won't get as much for Glasto, it will still be a good earner” the source added.

According to the eagled-eyed paper, Doherty wrote on his blog that "There's some offers for Libertines gigs”, before later deleting the post.

The band are also rumoured to be playing at Hyde Park this summer with support from Brother.

Today (Friday) Beyonce has confirmed that she’ll be playing Glastonbury Festival 2011 while U2 and Coldplay remain likely to headline as well.

Pulp, Fatboy Slim, Jessie J, Arcade Fire and The Chemical Borthers are also rumoured to perform.
