BUSTED star MATT JAY has vowed to quit his wild party lifestyle after rekindling his romance with ex-girlfriend HOLLY DAVIES.

The WHAT I GO TO SCHOOL FOR singer's frequent binge drinking jaunts since splitting with Davies last November (03) have left pals deeply concerned about his welfare, but now they're confident their reunion will encourage Jay to curb his hedonistic ways.

One friend says, "When Matt first became single he absolutely loved it. He was happy to put a few notches on his bed post. But after a few months he started feeling lonely and empty.

"His bandmates Charlie Simpson and James Bourne are both spoken for. So after a gig they'd go home to their girlfriends and Matt would party on his own.

"It got worse on the band's recent trip to America. Matt realised how much he loves Holly. They are taking it one step at a time. But privately Matt has admitted that Holly is the one for him."
