British singer Natasha Bedingfield refuses to admit she fancies AMY WINEHOUSE's boyfriend TYLER JAMES - but she also refuses to deny it.

The THESE WORDS star spent time with the hunk, also a singer, during her tour of England (FEB05), and feisty Winehouse is becoming increasingly suspicious of her blonde rival's motives.

Bedingfield says, "He's been on my England tour, so that's probably how she came up with that.

"He's a nice guy. A lot of people fancy him."

But when quizzed as to whether she has the hots for James, she merely says, "Erm...I'm not going to say."
