Heidi Range doesn't dread going to work any more now Keisha Buchanan has left The Sugababes.
The pop trio - whose only remaining founding member Keisha left in September and was swiftly replaced by Jade Ewen - have had to deal with allegations from fans that Keisha was unfairly ousted, but Heidi says things in the group have never been better since Keisha departed.
The 'About A Girl' singer said: "It's such a difference, we don't dread coming to work any more! We laugh all the time now."
Bandmate Amelle Berrabah - who checked into a private clinic in Austria for three weeks in October to be treated for "severe nervous exhaustion" - also insisted she, Heidi and Jade are getting on great and feels the group is much stronger following Keisha's exit.
She added to Britain's Star magazine: "Our personalities really gel. It feels so natural and like we've all been together a lot longer.
"Jade fits like a glove. She looks great, she sings great and we couldn't be happier that she's part of the group."
