Busted hunk Charlie Simpson has angered his religious family by adopting the pose of a crucified JESUS - although the cheeky singer claims he was simply re-enacting a scene from TITANIC.

The sexy pop-rocker can often be seen stretching his arms out when he is on stage as if he is assuming the position of

the religious figure on the cross.

However, the THAT'S WHAT I GO TO SCHOOL FOR singer's brother and father are devout Christians, and have taken umbrage at Charlie's apparent lack of respect.

Charlie shrugs, "My brother and dad were really offended by it - they're properly religious and got really upset.

"But I wasn't trying to copy Jesus, I was copying JACK from Titanic."
