Tom King and Elsa Charretier Sitting in a Tree, T-W-E-E-T-I-N-G. What could their secret project be? No idea, but we bet it's about P-T-S-D.

So we guess this counts as at least partial confirmation of Rich's rumours, which is sure to make that smug bastard happy. "Pip pip," we can imagine him saying right now. "You 'eard it 'ere first, you did." Shut up, Rich!
More details soon.
