Former A1 heart-throb Ben Adams has confessed he once slept with a Thai prostitute.

The TAKE ON ME singer, 23, decided to pay for sex during one of the defunct pop group's many tours of Asia.

Adams explains, "I think you've got to try everything once.

"I was in this strip bar and all these naked girls were massaging my hands, and I just thought, 'Oh well, I'll try it once', and went with this other girl.

"It didn't really do a huge amount for me. It's always like, if you can sleep with people without having to pay them, then why f**king bother."

Adams is launching his solo career with the R+B single SORRY this week (begs30MAY05).
