Teenage popstars THE Sugababes are insisting they all get on well, despite long-running rumours of a rift.

The FREAK LIKE ME hitmakers are at pains to insist they are great friends, even though Heidi Range, who replaced Siobhan Donaghy in the band, is said to be unpopular with fellow Sugababes Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan.

Mutya says, "We don't need to prove to people we get on by hugging and kissing each other."

Heidi adds, "We get on a lot better than those bands you see pretending to be perfect on telly. We don't really fight. I don't know why people think that Mutya and Keisha are nasty."
