ATOMIC KITTEN singer Natasha Hamilton has slammed critics who claim the girlband are splitting due to tension between her and bandmate Jenny Frost.

Reports were sparked when Natasha had her hair cut in a similar style to Frost's, prompting the blonde singer to immediately alter her style.

But Natasha - who has temporarily disbanded the group to spend more time with baby son JOSH - insists there is no truth in the whispers, as she, Frost and fellow Kitten Liz Mcclarnon remain the best of friends.

She says, "So many people were trying to make out that me and Jenny didn't get on - it all started because of a haircut - we're really not that sad!

"Jenny wanted extensions and I wanted my hair short. She was going to do it anyway."
