Mis-teeq scored seven top ten hits including Scandalous
Girl group Mis-teeq, best known for the top 10 hit Scandalous, have split up after eight years together.

Aleesha Dixon, Sabrina Washington and Su-Elise Nash have said they plan to focus on solo careers.

A spokesperson for the group said the split was amicable. "After having a great time, they've decided to do their own thing," she said.

Mis-teeq's final single, a cover of the Andrews Sisters song Shoo Shoo Baby, will be released at the end of March.

The trio first hit the charts in 2001, with the top 10 hit Why, and released a further seven singles, six of which reached the top 10.

Their biggest hits were All I Want and Scandalous, both of which peaked at number two. They also released two albums, Lickin' On Both Sides and Eye Candy.

They were nominated for two Brit Awards in 2004, including best British single. They also played the Glastonbury Festival in 2002.

More recently, Dixon appeared in the video for the N.E.R.D hit She Wants To Move.
