teaming with Paul Weller and Bruce Foxton on new single.
The article didn't have any confirmation from Wiggins, Weller, Foxton, any of the others said to be involved, or their spokespeople. Just one anonymous source:
A source said: “It’s all incredibly exciting and has been in the pipeline for some time.
“Everything has finally been signed off though, and a date set for mid-February.”
The Mirror's article has now vanished from its website - very possibly as a result of this post on Weller's Official Facebook page:
Mike Dawes at MailOnline, the Huffington Post and the Express all repeated the story based solely, it seems, on the Mirror's anonymous source. There doesn't appear to be have been any fact-checking by any of them - just some copy-and-pasting. The Express article was published after the Weller denial.
Five days on, all three articles remain live and uncorrected.
