British pop star Dido and her producer brother ROLLO battled bitterly over her latest album Life For Rent.

The 32-year-old has worked with Rollo, a member of dance act Faithless, on both her hit LPs - but confesses the pair frequently clashed.

Dido says, "We fought because we're both always adamant that we're right.

"Sometimes, I'd be screaming, crying and thumping my fists on the floor until I got my own back.

"One time I really lost it, I was really tired and just snuck into a corner, curled up in a ball, crying and shouting until Rollo found me.

"But the great thing about working with Rollo is that we always know what we want to hear in the end - we just have different ways of getting there."
