Busted hunk Charlie Simpson is obsessed with space - he'd like to become an astronaut, and even thinks he saw a UFO once.

The YEAR 3000 heart-throb admits he'd like to be the second pop star in space.

He says, "I'm fascinated by the universe. There's so much out there that we don't know about.

"In fact, I'd love to go into space like Lance Bass from 'N Sync almost did. I'd let everyone go into space.

"I'm pretty sure that I saw a UFO once. I was on a harbour and saw a big, flashing red-and-green thing, moving really fast in the sky."
