Pop pin-up Jessica Simpson is urging teenage girls to cling onto their virginity until they wed - because the wait is worth it.

The singer tells men's magazine BLENDER that her wedding night was extra special as a result of her decision.

Simpson, who wed longtime lover Nick Lachey earlier this year (03), says, "It was the most amazing moment of my life. I'm so lucky I didn't lose my virginity in the back of a Jeep or something.

"Instead, I had this amazing elaborate wedding and I topped it off with that."
