Sugababes star Jade Ewen wants to find a boyfriend - but doesn't have the time to look.

The sexy singer - who recently joined the pop band following The Departure of founding member Keisha Buchanan - wants to date but is constantly busy with her hectic work schedule.

She told Britain's Metro newspaper: "I still haven't got a boyfriend. You know what is mad? You actually do not have the time. I think it was actually two weeks ago the last time I even saw my mum. You meet people all the time but you never get the chance to really get to know anyone. There are people around and there was someone and I thought, 'Oh, he's cute.' But I haven't had that chance to explore that avenue."

The Sugababes - who are also comprised of Amelle Berrabah and Heidi Range - are preparing for the release of their new album 'Sweet 7', which is due to come out in March 2010, and have been promoting latest single 'About a Girl'.

Keisha recently revealed she had forgiven her former bandmates and held no grudge towards Jade.

She said: "I've cried so many tears. I'm over the worst. I believe I am stronger for it all. The girls are my friends. I'm certainly concerned about them and wish them only the best.

"There's no hard feelings with the girls, it's time to move on."
