Blue hunk Duncan James has started work on his solo album even though the chart-topping boyband haven't officially split up.

The ALL RISE singer, who became a father on Saturday (26FEB05) with the birth of TIANIE-FINN, has begun work on his debut disc this week (begs28FEB05), only days after his band were forced to cancel their British tour due to bandmate Lee Ryan's throat problems.

A source says, "Dunc hasn't ruled out writing a track for his daughter."
