BUSTED singer James Bourne may be madly in love with girlfriend and housemate Kara Tointon, but he regularly invited lady visitors to his hotel room during his single days.

The rocker, 20, admits he hid female companions from the media and his management when the trio first leapt to fame in late 2002.

Bourne boasts, "All the time. It was never that hard to hide them. This was at the beginning though. We weren't that famous whe we stayed at THE INTERCONTINENTAL."

Meanwhile bandmate MATT JAY adds, "We were coming back from a club once and there were loads of press outside the hotel so the girl I left the club with had to enter the hotel round the back."
