Former ALL SAINTS singer Mel Blatt is unable to enjoy Justin Timberlake's raunchy adult incarnation - because she knew him when he was just a boy.

Blatt, who is launching her solo career with new single U DO ME WRONG, remembers touring with Justin's old band 'N Sync at the height of her girl group's success, but remembers a much more innocent Timberlake than the one currently portrayed in the media.

Mel remembers, "I've known him for years. We did a US tour with 'N Sync and they were lovely, very funny.

"Justin was just a kid though, so now I'm like, 'How dare you be sexy and have all these people wanting you!' I still think of him as 17."
