Former Busted star Charlie Simpson is set to walk down the aisle next week (beg16Jun14). The British rocker has confirmed he is preparing to marry his partner shortly before the release of his second solo album, which is due out later this summer (14). Simpson has not revealed any further details about his bride-to-be or the ceremony, but insists he is excited about tying the knot. He tells U.K. TV host Lorraine Kelly, "I'm getting married next week. Which is scary - it's all been a bit crazy, releasing an album, getting married, but I'm looking forward to it.." When asked whether he will be singing at the wedding, Simpson shrugs off the suggestion but reveals his backing band will be playing at the reception. He adds, "I don't know (about singing at the ceremony)... I think if it wasn't my job then it might be nice, but because I'm a singer... I'm worried it looks a bit (tacky)... (But) my backing solo band are my wedding band."
