BUSTED singer Charlie Simpson is venting his rock ambitions with underground band FIGHT STAR.

Frontman Simpson, 18, is keen to take his sideline rock group on tour around Britain after performing a preview gig in a tiny club in Camden, North London.

However, the teenage heart-throb is not planning to part company with his CRASHED THE WEDDING bandmates MATT JAY and James Bourne, despite his foray into a harder sound.

One gig-goer says, "Their (Fight Star) tunes were NINE INCH NAILS' HURT and their own song AMETHYST, which rocked."

A source adds, "This is a great way for Charlie to experiment with his music without affecting Busted."
