Pop siblings Natasha and Daniel Bedingfield will soon be competing in the charts with their youngest sister NIKOLA - who is in negotiations with three major record labels.

Natasha topped the British album charts this year (04) with her debut album UNWRITTEN while Daniel has had three number one hits, and now their 20-year-old sister is touted as the third member of the family to find pop stardom.

An industry insider says, "There is a great deal of interest in her from Daniel's record label Polydor and Natasha's label BMG, but also WARNER - it's expected she will sign a deal early next year."

Daniel says, "Nikola has a remarkable sound. It's a cross between LAURYN HILL and The Cranberries. She has at least two albums worth of material and just can't wait to get recording."

Blue hunk Lee Ryan adds, "Nikola has an amazing voice and will be massive. She's got so much talent. Everybody will be blown away by her."
