With their re-released single heading for number one (the phrase "moving as assuredly as a lion towards an elderly okapi" is the one we'd heard), The Ordinary Boys are basking in something of a post-Celeb BB glow right now. The band's tour has been radically extended to meet demand, although the number of people calling for tickets who realise they're not going to be watching Preston touching Chantelle's bottom is probably low.

The dates now read:

Dublin Ambassador (March 16)
Belfast Mandela Hall (17)
Glasgow Barrowlands (19)
Manchester Academy (20)
Nottingham Rock City (21)
Leeds University (23)
Bournemouth Solent (24)
London Brixton Academy (25)
Folkestone Leas Cliff Hall (26)
Brighton Dome (April 21)
Birmingham Carling Academy (22)
Liverpool University (23)
Edinburgh Corn Exchange (25)
Newcastle Carling Academy (26)
Norwich UEA (27)
Bristol Carling Academy (29)
Cardiff University (30)
Exeter University (May 1)

Chantelle's bottom is currently denying it will appear as support, although it has said it might consider a guest appearance at the Brixton date.
