It can be difficult to stand out from the crowd when you are posing with your bandmates.

But Amelle Berrabah certainly managed to do just that as she joined the Sugababes to promote their new single in Manchester today.

The 27-year-old singer certainly caused a stir as she arrived at the Key 103 radio station wearing a pair of bottom-skimming hotpants - leaving very little to the imagination.

Cheeky! Amelle Berrabah went for a daring look in a pair of bottom-skimming hotpants as she arrived at the Key 103 radio station in Manchester today

Causing a stir: Amelle seemed unconcerned about her revealing outfit, grinning for photographers as she arrived

Amelle teamed the shorts with a pair of black tights, which didn't succeed in maintaining any modesty, and a checked shirt, accessorised with a pair of tan boots.

Bandmate Jade Ewen also flashed her legs in a tiny denim playsuit, paired with a pair of black sandals and a blue turban, while Heidi Range showed off her toned stomach in a pink shirt, jeans and red shoes.

The girls have certainly been exploring a variety of different fashion options while promoting their new single Freedom.

Arriving for an interview at the Manchester radio station yesterday, the trio seemed to be competing for the tightest trousers with leggings which looked sprayed on.

Blonde 28-year-old Heidi opted for a spray-on pair of dark blue skinny jeans and teamed them with a black sheer shirt and bright red wayfarers.

And the newest member of the group, 23-year-old Jade, opted for a PVC pair of black leggings and a midriff-skimming tie up top.

Meanwhile, Amelle, 27, went for a feisty look and chose to show off her tiny figure in a leopard print pair of leggings teamed with a crop top and bright red lipstick.

The trio have been working hard to promote their new single and their upcoming album.
But, in a recent interview, Jade told Digital Spy the band are not yet fully happy with the record.

She said: 'We still haven't signed off on it completely yet, because it's always good to keep recording and we just want to pick the very best.

'Because we're still recording a lot, we haven't said... "this is the sound". Freedom is a good idea of the sort of template that we're going with. It's a bit darker, tougher and quite edgy.'

Sprayed on: Jade's leggings were so tight that they looked as though they had been sprayed on

The girls all decided to complete their looks with killer heels and big smiles, perhaps putting on a united front following their court battle earlier on this week.

Former band member, Mutya Buena, who left the group in 2005, recently claimed victory to continue using the girl groups name on a limited number of products such as stationary and gift wrap.

However, the current pop trio have insisted that it's 'business as usual' and judging by their latest fashion sense, it seems that the band are determined to be as sexy and successful as ever.

But it wasn't always skin tight trousers and red lippy, the original band formed in 1998 with the line up of Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena and Keisha Buchanan.

Siobhan left the group after the release of their debut album, One Touch, and Heidi was brought in to replace red-head Siobhan.

The group enjoyed great success with the release of three albums, but in December 2005 another member decided to quit the group and that was Mutya.

However, the Sugababes survived another line up change as almost straight away, Amelle was added to the group and the girls were once again a trio.

In 2009 the Performing Rights Society named the group as the fourth hardest-working band of 2008 due to the number of concerts they had performed during that year, but in September they were hit with another bombshell as the remaining original member, Keisha decided to leave.

Jade joined the band shortly after and released the album, Sweet 7, with Heidi and Amelle. It was the first Sugababes album since 2005's Taller In More Ways to contain at least three top ten hits.

The girls released a statement on their website saying: 'Over four months ago it was officially confirmed by the European Trade Marks Department that Sugababes were successful in claiming their ongoing right to use the name 'Sugababes' for all areas of commercial activity that the band requires, namely within the music, sound recording and entertainment industry, as well as being granted extensive rights to produce a wide range of merchandise.'

Their new single is due for release on September 25 and is being used by Nokia in their latest advertising campaign for the N8 handset.
