Ex-BUSTED stars MATT JAY and James Bourne are finding it difficult to adjust to life without former bandmate Charlie Simpson.

The CRASHED THE WEDDING hitmakers devastated devoted fans earlier this month (JAN05) by announcing the end of their chart run so Simpson can pursue a career with new group Fightstar.

Jay and Bourne, who are now both forging new careers in the music business, are finding it difficult being left behind.

Jay says, "Charlie leaving has left us a bit winded. We've spent a long time as a trio and suddenly it's no longer. Of course it's difficult to adjust."
