Popstars the rivals: Sugababes party with The Saturdays for JLS birthday bash
Aston Merrygold is a lucky boy.
The JLS singer celebrated his 22nd birthday in style last night - with the help of girl rival bands Sugababes and The Saturdays.
The girls put aside any competitive streaks and partied with the boys at the Mayfair hotel before moving on the nightblub Alto.
The pop stars may have worn different outfits but they all had one thing in common - showing off their toned legs.
Mollie King, 22, Vanessa White, 20 Rochelle Wiseman, 20, Frankie Sandford, 21, of The Saturdays, piled into a cab and headed for Alto with a friend.
Frankie, sporting a white dress, appeared to have been the victim of a botched fake tan and not even a bright orange bag was enough to detract from her patchy thighs.
Sugababe Amelle Berrabah wore a similar outfit to Frankie while new band member Jade Ewan opted for black.
There was no sign of fellow bandmate Heidi Range though.
The band first formed in 1998 and have undergone four different line-ups since the original trio of Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan.
Now there are no more original members left but Amelle said there will be no more new faces.
She said: 'Nobody will be leaving and we won't be getting anyone new. We've got the perfect lineup. I couldn't ask for a better group of girls. We're like sisters.'
The Saturdays have added their two pennies worth to the debate about the though, saying the girlband should change their name now that none of the original members remain.
'I kind of feel that it's a bit unfair to keep using the Sugababes name if she's not in it. She was the only original member left even though Heidi has been there a long time,' singer Rochelle Wiseman told website Digital Spy.
'You never know what goes on behind the scenes and I don't think we'll ever really get the truth, just what the newspapers say.'
And, asked whether she thinks Sugababes will still be around one year from now, Wiseman cheekily replied: 'Maybe, but they'll probably have three different members!
But she conceeded: 'The new lineup is hot, though. I saw a picture of them and it looks like it's going to be a good video.'
The Saturdays recently released single Ego from second album Wordshaker and were the cover stars of the January issue of men's magazine FHM.
The girls admitted they chose a more conservative look when they first made their assault on the charts.
'We played it safe before because people didn't really know us, but now we're taking more risks,' they said.
