Take That and Britney Spears, two of the music world's biggest-selling acts, are tonight embroiled in a row over a new album which both parties say is theirs.

The Circus is the album in question, but both Spears and That claim ownership (some would say 'blame') for the recording.

It's a row which has left music fans of both artists dumbfounded.

Spears said in an interview in Los Angeles earlier this week:

"It's my album. I worked hard on it, well, the writers did, and the session musicians, of course, and the backing vocalists. Well, you know what I mean."

Back in England though, That frontman Gary Barlow told the NME:

"It's our album. We worked hard on it, well, the writers did, and the session musicians, and the backing vocalists. Well, you know what I mean. Bloody 'ell!"

To avoid confusion, the album will be released in the US as Circus by Britney Spears, and in the UK under the name The Circus by Take That, on 1 December.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
