Adam Ant has sparked rumours that he is to make a comeback album and has already started work on it.

The former pop star, who has suffered from mental illness in the past, won the 'Icon' award at Monday's Q Awards, but has not released new material since 1995.

However, a 'source' told The Sun: "Adam is back on track again. He's had a difficult few years, but has finally found his focus. His new material is really strong and he's going to come back stronger than ever in the new year."

Ant himself spoke in praise of Kaiser Chiefs at the Q Awards, saying: "They're great. They've got it just right. They have a good pop sensibility. I'd record with them in a flash. If they'd have me, that is."
