The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins is teaming up with ASH singer TIM WHEELER to create a new band.

The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE star wanted his new side project to remain secret and is furious he accidentally revealed that he's asked Wheeler to co-write some songs for his new rock act, WHITE SLAVE.

Hawkins says, "Justin asked me to work on this project, White Slave.

"Ash are going on tour with the Darkness at the end of the year (04) and were going to work on some songs.

"I'm not supposed to talk about it, but I can't wait, its going to be brilliant.

"Writing in a different key is fun. I'll be practicing my falsetto. That's it, it's supposed to be secret, I can't believe I said that much."
