As 'the voice' of the Sugababes, Amelle Berrabah is used to being supported vocally by her other two bandmates.
But last night rival girl group star Rochelle Wiseman of The Saturdays was playing the supporting role instead, admittedly of a rather different kind, as she propped up a bleary-eyed Amelle.
The pair were pictured arriving together at Alto club in London's Soho just before midnight, with a worse for wear Amelle, 26, leaning on Rochelle, 21.
What rivalry? A worse for wear Amelle Berrabah of Sugababes is given a helping hand by Rochelle Wiseman of The Saturdays as they partied in London last night
Earlier they attended a Pool Disco Party at Shoreditch House along with Rochelle's boyfriend, JLS singer Marvin Humes, 25.
But they weren't prepared to let the night end there as they enjoyed the festivities of the Bank Holiday weekend into the early hours.
Marvin and Rochelle left Alto at around 2.30am, with Amelle following closely behind around 10 minutes later.

Both the girls wore equally eye-catching outfits with Amelle slipping into a strapless white dress covered in love hearts while Rochelle poured her curves into a figure-hugging peach bandage-style dress, teamed with a leather jacket.
Rochelle looked very much in love as she gazed into Marvin's eyes before clambering into the back of a taxi.
Amelle left separately and couldn't stop laughing as she was escorted to her car by a burly security guard who was munching on a chocolate bar.

The Sugababes, whose current line up also includes Heidi Range and Jade Ewen, are currently fighting to retain ownership of the band's name.
It comes after Mutya Buena - one of the original members - applied to the European Union trademarks authority in November last year.
But the band, and their record company Island Records, have now filed a notice of opposition.

The group, which formed in 1998, underwent their third line-up change last October when Keisha Buchanan left, being replaced by Ewen.
Range replaced Siobhan Donaghy in 2001 while Amelle stepped up in 2005 when Buena quit.
The Saturdays - who signed to Polydor in 2008 - remain intact with no line-up changes to date. The other members are Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Vanessa White and Una Healy.
