Spandex-clad rockers The Darkness are planning to make their next crazy outfit from an assortment of fan's underwear - which includes a pair of Courtney Love's knickers.

The GROWING ON ME performers are famous for their outrageous stagewear, and were inundated when a British radio presenter invited fans to post the band their underwear.

Singer JUSTIN HAWKINS says, "(TV Presenter) Zoe Ball asked women to send their knickers in to her show and make a catsuit out of them for me to wear.

"So I've got all these knickers of various sizes and smells, enough to make a suit, a cape and some sort of headgear. The first pair that turned up were Courtney Love's."
