Pop superstar Britney Spears' mum LYNNE insists the pair are so alike, they are more like sisters than mother and daughter.

Spears Sr claims she shares a close bond with her superstar offspring.

She explains in a posting on Britney's official website: "It was so funny, Britney and I hadn't seen each other for a week while she was away and wouldn't you know it - the first day we saw each other we were both dressed alike and wearing the same colour - chocolate brown.

"Even when we're not together we still share the same idiosyncrasies."
