The group respond to tabloid newspaper speculation by saying they still "love" working together...

S Club 7 have dismissed rumours of an imminent split.

As reported yesterday on NME.COM, UK newspaper News Of The World claimed the group will not record another studio album, instead opting to release a ‘Greatest Hits’ compilation and participate in a farewell tour this summer.

However, speaking in this morning’s The Sun (January 7), vocalist Rachel Stevens said that the group were working on a new record and all “love” being in the group.

She said: “We all love being in S Club 7. It was news to us all to hear we were supposed to be splitting up. There’s no truth in it.

“The fans can expect lots more from us. We’ve got loads lined up for the future. We’re recording our fourth album and it will be all new material.”
