Celebrity News: Pop music set a date with destiny last night when the newly-reunited original Sugababes line-up held a press conference to announce that they will go head-to-head against their replacements in a tag-team wrestling extravaganza for the title of ‘Ultimate Sugababes.’

Ex-Sugababes to wrestle current Sugababes for title of 'Ultimate Sugababes'

The group has been through a great deal of upheaval. Founder members Siobhán Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan all left between 2001 and 2009 to be replaced by Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen. This has lead to legal wrangles over rights to the name – a struggle which will come to an end in July in front of an audience of thousands.

The star-studded ‘Ultimate Sugadown’ event will be held at the O2 Arena in July and hosted by Phill Jupitus. The victorious team will not only be awarded a trio of commemorative belts but the rights, in perpetuity, to the name ‘Ultimate Sugababes’.

Betting enthusiast and bicycle repair man Justin Fagsworth explains why he put £500 on the ones he half-jokingly calls ‘the original gangstas’.

“It’s all about Mutya for me,” says Fagsworth.

“When she cuts her eyes at you, you know you’re in trouble. If she works hard, I think she’s got what it takes to go all the way. I’m talking one-on-one events. I’m talking America. Potentially, she could be up against Chris Brown in a few years. Jesus Christ, how I’d love to see Mutya kick his head in.”
