*Nsync reach out to fans

*Nsync are going to lend a sympathetic ear to their fans - and offer advice.

The BBC's website <http://www.bbc.co.uk/> will run the group's advice column from December 4-17. Teens with problems are urged to write in and ask the boys for their help, Music 365 reports.

"It is great to be able to give something back to our UK fans n they have been really supportive," read a message from the band. "We can't wait to get answering the problems and between us we've been through a lot of ups and downs and we will be pulling on all our experiences to try to help others."

Teens can write the boys with their questions at nsync@bbc.co.uk.

*Nsync isn't the first pop act to act as an advice columnist though. Earlier this year, pop star Britney Spears answered teen questions on the same site.

In more *Nsync news, the boy band recently finished filming an ad discouraging under-age drinking.

The group's PSA is expected to air during the Super Bowl broadcast on January 28, 2001.
