The Darkness rocker Justin Hawkins finds the pressures of constant touring tough on his love life - but is grateful for his family's support.

The GROWING ON ME singer has already suffered a split from fiancee SUE WHITEHOUSE, who is also the band's manager, late last year (03), so appreciates the stability his relatives have provided during his meteoric rise to fame.

Justin says, "Everything is cool in my mind with how it's going. But, you know, the way that my life is at the moment, you've just got to take it one day at a time.

"It is a struggle being on the road. My friends and family worry about me but I'm getting myself together this year.

"My folks are always on the phone wherever I am in the world, which is really nice."
