Rachel Stevens has snubbed her former S CLUB bandmates by neglecting to mention the group in her new album.

Her on-off beau, British TV actor Jeremy Edwards, is the subject of glowing praise in the credits for new LP FUNKY DORY, and she even find the space to thank S Club creator SIMON FULLER - but Hannah Spearritt, JON LEE JO O'MEARA, BRADLEY McINTOSH, Tina Barrett and PAUL CATTERMOLE, who went their separate ways when the pop group split earlier this year (MAY03), are ignored.

Rachel gushes about Edwards, with whom she recently split and reunited, "Jez, thank you for always listening and for always being honest and true. It means so much to me."

And she waxes lyrical about Fuller, writing, "Your support, guidance and vision has been paramount to my success. You truly are unique."
