SUGABABES singer Keisha Buchanan almost irretrievably damaged her friendship with her ex-bandmate Mutya Buena during their time touring the world together.

Buena, 20, left the ROUND ROUND trio in December (05), and Buchanan admits the pair are only now patching up their differences.

She says, "We never really did have arguments, we just never spoke to one another.

"We're trying to make up for it now. I think our friendship kind of became broken along the way."

Buena was replaced by Amelle Berrabah.
