The 49-year-old actor - who was fired from the show in 2011 after rowing with its producer Chuck Lorre and subsequently threatened him and Warner Bros with $100 million lawsuit - has confessed he would love to return to the hit comedy in a "classy" way.

He told E! News: "The chances would be 100 percent. If they want to do it.

"I just want to do it classy. I want to do it in a way that still services what the show is today, and also honours what it was when I was there. Who knows? I'm sure they are over there right now, pen to paper, trying to figure something out.

"If it's not done properly, then there is no reason to do it. But it's a pretty smart group over there and I'm sure they will figure something. Something that makes sense to everyone."

A representative for the star added: "A balloon was floated so to speak..And everyone kind of went hmm, that could be kind of interesting. And that is the state where it is at."

However, sources have since revealed there is no truth to the statements and insist Charlie - who played Charlie Harper on the show from its beginning in 2003 - has had no contact with the CBS show's producers with regards to reprising his role.

An insider said: "Charlie has not had any conversations with the Two and a Half Men producers regarding a return. There has been no back and forth."

Charlie's character was killed off the sitcom in 2011 and was replaced by Ashton Kutcher in the role of Walden Schmidt.
