Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has tweeted to confirm that Oasis are not playing Glastonbury this year.

Bookies had suspended bets on the band playing after Liam Gallagher sent a cryptic series of tweets, using letters to spell out the name of his former band.

This year's Saturday headliner still hasn't been announced.

It's 20 years since the release of Oasis' debut album Definitely Maybe.

Eavis confirmed the band wouldn't be appearing in a simple tweet, responding to someone asking her directly.

Gallagher's tweet could have been linked to the fact he was pictured this week with Oasis band mate Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs.

The pair apparently had a drink together, with Bonehead tweeting the word 'pub' in a similar style to Liam's message.

Arcade Fire and Kasabian are the headliners for the Friday and Sunday nights of the festival, held in Somerset at the end of June.

The Black Keys, Dolly Parton and Lily Allen are some of the other acts performing over the weekend.
