Pop band S Club have denied rumours that they are splitting up.

At a press conference to promote their upcoming film, Seeing Double, band member Rachel Stevens said reports of a split were false.

"For now, we are really together... at the moment everything is cool and we are really happy," she said.

But she admitted that a future split was not out of the question.

"I think when the time comes, it will be because we have decided we want to move on and do different things," she added.

Departure

Bandmate Jon Lee added: "They said we were splitting up last year. We've heard it all before."

The S Club film comes on the back of four TV series, four albums, a Brit award and the creation of spin-off group S Club Juniors.

The departure of Paul Cattermole last year - prompting a name change from S Club 7- added to the rumours.

The group said they continue to see Cattermole, who left after revealing he was in a relationship with bandmate Hannah Spearritt.

"He comes down to rehearsal and hangs out," said Bradley McIntosh.

Spearritt said he was not disappointed about missing out on the film, adding: "He knew it was coming up when he left."

Seeing Double is co-written by Kim Fuller, who penned Spiceworld: The Movie, which made more than 50m (35m) at the box office world-wide.

Pop Idol runner-up Gareth Gates makes a guest appearance in Seeing Double, in which he shares a romantic moment with Stevens.

Seeing Double is released on 11 April.
