BUSTED star MATT JAY has laughed off reports he's dating British MTV presenter Emma Griffiths, insisting incriminating photos of the pair have been misconstrued.

The SLEEPING WITH THE LIGHTS ON singer is close friends with Griffiths and couldn't contemplate having a relationship with her - chiefly because she's too attractive for him.

He says, "A picture of us kissing outside a nightclub came out. It was only on the cheek but it became this big thing. Emma's one of my best friends and she called me up the next day laughing and saying 'apparently we're dating'.

"I was mortified - she's totally out of my league!"
