How to remove head- and footlines for pages between chapters?

I have a problem that I'm not able to solve with LaTeX: I'm in book mode. Then LaTeX leaves a blank page just after the table of contents to start the first chapter on an odd page. Before it I have configured LaTeX with fancyhdr to make my own header and my own footer (which contains the page numbers).

I want to leave this page without any header, how can I do that ? Thank you !

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.



all pages with no text (generated in order to have chapters start on odd numbered pages) will be completely empty.

can be used for a single page (maybe in combination with \pagebreak), but because the length of the table of contents might change (and therefore the last page of the table might have an even number), here


from the first answer is probably better. (Except when you want other empty pages to have foooter and header, of course.)
