British boyband Busted have been warned to halt their party-loving lifestyle for fear the chart-topping trio are heading for meltdown.

Band members MATT JAY, 20, Charlie Simpson, 18, and James Bourne, 20 - are concerning record bosses who fear the boys are spiraling out-of-control with their hedonistic lifestyle.

An insider says, "Bosses fear Charlie, Matt and James may burn themselves out by partying to excess.

"There's a real contrast between their fresh-faced looks at the start of their career and how they look now.

"They have been warned to cut out their boozy nights on the town. To crack the States they need to keep it together.

"They've been told to watch their step or they could lose everything."
