The group will continue on the road as a three-piece even if the star's pregnancy causes complications...

ALL SAINTS have said that they will continue their spring tour as a three-piece if NICOLE APPLETON’s pregnancy gets in the way of performing.

According to[url=], the band said they would actually look forward to performing as a three-piece as, according to Mel Blatt, it would be more intimate.

She added that “the emphasis is on the music rather than huge stage shows” and that the band had already geared their performances to smaller venues.

Shaznay Lewis added that they were all excited about heading out on the road and “jamming” rather than performing big production numbers.

All Saints release new single ‘All Hooked Up’ on January 15 and begin their UK tour in Manchester on May 6, around the same time as Appleton’s baby with Liam Gallagher is due.
