No looking back for Keisha

Keisha Buchanan has “moved on” from the Sugababes.

Keisha Buchanan has “moved on” from the Sugababes.

The singer – who was replaced in the British all-female trio by Jade Ewan last September amid allegations she had bullied Amelle Berrabah – doesn’t dwell on the past but has revealed she no longer speaks to former bandmate Heidi Range.

She said: “We’ve all moved on, you know. You have to stop looking back because you can’t change things. But I haven’t spoken to Heidi since.”

Keisha – who was an original member of the group along with Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy – is looking forward to releasing music as a solo artist, though she admits she is finding the experience strange.

She added to Closer magazine: “I’m extremely happy with where I am now. I don’t know how it’s going to be promoting an album on my own though, but it’s nice making decisions on my own.”

The current Sugababes line-up – Heidi, Amelle and Jade – recently insisted they are not in “competition” with Keisha.

Jade said: "Keisha is a solo artist and we're a group so we're not in competition with each other at all. That would be ridiculous - I've never even met her."
