Busted 'Temporary' Split

Subscribe to Busted alerts

British chart-toppers Busted have confirmed reports the band are splitting - but insist the hiatus is only temporary.

Original bandmembers MATT JAY and James Bourne have clashed with the group's heart-throb Charlie Simpson, who was trying to balance his Busted commitments with his rock side-project Fightstar.

In a magazine interview last week (ends07JAN05), Simpson said, "It was a fun job but I'd never claim Busted was anything other than a pop band. Busted is not the ideal band I'd like to be in by any stretch of the imagination."

After weeks of speculation about the future of the CRASHED THE WEDDING trio, their spokesman admitted yesterday (12JAN05), "Charlie is doing Fightstar at the moment. Matt and James are taking a break.

"Busted will reconvene in due course."
