Pop trio Destiny's Child got a shock on Monday night (01NOV04) when two obsessed fans were discovered hiding outside the group's London hotel rooms.

Beyonce Knowles, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland were returning to the British capital's Sanderson Hotel after a day promoting their new album DESTINY FULFILLED, when their security guards spotted the determined devotees waiting in the corridors outside the band's $1,800 (GBP1,000) a night suites.

A source tells British newspaper DAILY EXPRESS, "As the band got back to their hotel their security team did a quick sweep and found two fans hiding near their rooms.

"They had been posing as guests and I think they were just desperate to meet Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle. While it is unlikely they posed any risk, the breach of security did highlight the constant need for vigilance."

Earlier in the day, Destiny's Child caused chaos at Piccadilly Circus' Virgin Megastore music store, as thousands of fans queuing to see their idols, spilled onto the road, leaving police to re-route public buses.
