Appearing on commercial radio's Pepsi Chart Show, she said: "There have been lots of rumours in the papers today saying I am going to get dropped, and the truth of the matter is I am not going to get dropped."

She said her forthcoming single, I Wish, a duet with Robbie Craig, was already receiving lots of airplay.

"They wouldn't be letting me do another single if I was going to get dropped," she added.

"You know what newspapers are like, they just like to put all the negative stuff in, but as far as I'm concerned and the record company is concerned it is all great."

This week's chart shows Enrique Iglesias holding off competition from Beckham, S Club 7, DB Boulevard and Brandy to stay at number one for a fourth week with his ballad Hero.

S Club 7 have the highest new entry with You, while Italian DJ act DB Boulevard's Point of View is new in at number three and US R'n'B superstar Brandy enters at four with What About Us?
