The Sugababes have made a resolution to crack the US in the New Year.

The British girl group - who have had a difficult year after the last remaining original member Keisha Buchanan left the band in September to be replaced by Jade Ewen - plan to launch a full blown assault on America in 2010.

Heidi Range, 26, said: "We're planning to go over there next year. We can't wait. We don't know when it will be as we have so much to do in the UK first, but it will happen."

Heidi - who is also joined in the trio by Amelle Berrabah - believes the girls have as much chance as anyone to crack the US.

She said: "There's room for everyone in the US. We've delayed our new album until next year. Hopefully, by then, we'll have all moved on and can just talk about music."
