As a doctor ordered Natasha Hamilton to take powerful medication for clinical depression following the birth of her son Josh 15 months ago, friends fear the Atomic Kitten star is becoming dangerously thin. “Her thighs and arms are like sticks – she’s never been this skinny before,” a pal told The People. “Tash used to have a much fuller figure but she is just a shadow of her former self. It’s gone past the usual lean pop star look and now it’s just unhealthy. She’s working so hard and she’s not eating enough for the energy she’s using.”
The Glasgow Daily Record reports Atomic Kitten flew to Scotland yesterday and singer Natasha Hamilton was back on board after a bout of post-natal depression. “I am feeling really fine, I am much better,” Nat insisted. Road manager, Carl Machin, was eager to stress that she is feeling better now. He said: “Natasha is recovering. She’s not anorexic. The whole thing has been blown out of proportion. She just didn’t feel very well.”
Top of the Pops caught up with Sugababes singers Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena, and Heidi Range, and asked the “replacement” member in the group, Heidi Range, to describe when she first felt like a true member of the group. It had been reported recently that Mutya and Keisha wanted to kick Heidi out of the group and continue as a duo instead. “Erm.. I can’t really remember. The first six months, when I joined the band, we didn’t really know each other that well,” Range explained. “When we wrote ‘Angels With Dirty Faces’ it was really hard for all of us because I was a stranger to the girls and they were strangers to me. There was a lot of pressure when we wrote that, but now I think we’re the closest we’ve ever been. All the rumors go round, but it’s a load of rubbish. We’ve got so much respect for each other, and we’re really comfortable.”

The couple hit it off when the Sugababes were on the MTV program last month and made their romance public by engaging in some face-sucking at London’s Click club. “They arrived just before midnight and were led into the VIP part. They were sitting chatting and drinking and Heidi had her legs across Dave’s lap,” an onlooker described. “After a while they started snogging – and didn’t stop. Vern looked a bit of a gooseberry because he didn’t have anyone to talk to while they were chewing each other’s faces off.”
