ALL SAINT MELANIE BLATT has pledged her support to SHAZNAY LEWIS, saying she wants to sing on her solo album.

The girl group, whose key songwriter was Lewis, have split into two factions, with sisters Nicole and Natalie Appleton in opposition to the other two band members.

This morning’s Star newspaper (March 6) quotes Blatt as saying: “Shaznay is really good at writing songs. I’ll do backing vocals on her solo album.” She is also reported as having admitted that ticket sales for their cancelled UK tour, which was due to begin in May, were low, saying: “Nobody bought tickets.”
