BLUE singer Simon Webbe once appeared as a nude model in a steamy sex manual.

The hunky singer's saucy past was unveiled during an appearance by the ALL RISE band on a British TV chat show last night (6OCT03).

Show host, comedian Frank Skinner, stunned the 24-year-old by holding up a picture of him, taken from explicit book HOW TO BEHAVE IN BED by RICHARD MacDONALD.

Techniques taught in the raunchy text, published three years ago (00), include an entire chapter dedicated to the art of oral sex.

While Simon sat speechless, Skinner told the studio audience, "This is an emotional book on sex. Don't deny it's a great read. And there are things I wouldn't have quite got were it not for the illustrations." He then turned to Webbe and teased, "You alright Simon? You look a bit shaken. You look great in here."
