Tash: Well yeah - as we've said we're going to wait until after Christmas, and if the girls' solo careers have taken off and they are peaking in their careers we won't be able to do it after Christmas cos they'll be busy doing other things.
Liz: We'll talk probably before that anyway... We're going to be seeing each other loads anyway. We've got family weddings, birthday parties, other things we're going to go to...
Jenny: It's like we're talking a break from working together each day, being in each other's pockets every day, but we're still best of mates.. (jokes) we're not having a relationship! We're on a break!
We're going to be taking time out, we're still going to be seeing each other on a social level, still going to be on the phone all the time.
What about future solo plans?
Jenny: Everyone's made their decisions about what we're going to do and we haven't spoken to anybody.
We talked about this on the phone last night - we've not actually said to anybody what we're going to do. We've not actually discussed it with anybody - not even each other.
Liz: I think it's just going to be going into the studio and having a laugh with it. Really excited about that cos that's definitely one of my favourite places in the world.
Were you not tempted to do an Appleton sisters double-act?
Jenny: No because Atomic Kitten is about three people and if one of us is taken out of the equation it would just be a weaker version of Atomic Kitten. It's the three of us or all on our own.
Is difficult to work long hours as a threesome?
Jenny: I think it's easier for three girls than say four or five girls - when it's easy to split into camps and go yes and no against each other.
When there's three of you you've got no choice, you've got to talk about things as you can't alienate one person.
Just be open and honest with each other. This is why our friendship's survived, and we've been through some hard times but we've always come through it.
So I think that's because it's the three of us and we do have to be open and honest with each other.
Tash: (There's been a) lot of talk lately about us - arguments and stuff like that. But before that it made people sick - (there were loads of) jokes about us being so friendly. But we've never said we never argue like friends do. But we do sort it out.
Why didn't you play at a recent concert in Dublin Natasha?
Tash: I had food poisoning. The paper made their own story up and that's it. There's nothing you can really do about it.
What's your new single about?
Jenny: Our new single is a double A side. One half is a remixed version of Right Now, the first single the girls released - but I wasn't in the band then.
Everyone loves that song and it gives me a chance to sing on the re-released version of it.
The other side is a really beautiful piano ballad which Liz wrote...
Liz: About yourself. If you can forgive your friends and family for silly things you do you can always forgive yourself.
