British singer Natasha Bedingfield can't wait to leave the apartment she shares with her famous brother DANIEL - because she's tired of tidying up after him and putting up with his surprise guests.

The THESE WORDS star, 23, admits she's always got on with her singing sibling, but feels it's time to be independent.

And she won't miss Daniel's annoying habits, such as bringing home celebrity pals like Lionel Richie without warning her, and leaving his dirty socks around the house.

She explains, "I've been living with Dan, but I'm really excited about buying my own place, because I've always lived with him.

"I'm staying in London though."
