Some things I wouldn't admit to

...even for the money:

James Blunt, the former Guards officer turned romantic pop singer, is set for a courtroom battle in the long-running dispute over the authorship of six songs from his mega-selling first album.

Royalty payments to the ex-Harrovian were suspended last year after a claim by Lukas Burton, a Los Angeles record producer, who said he co-wrote the tracks with Blunt when the singer was little more than a raw young talent embarking on a career in the music industry.

Burton, who has worked with stars including Dido and Sir Paul McCartney, is seeking royalties for the tracks "Goodbye My Lover", "No Bravery", "Cry", "I Don't Believe", "I Really Want You" and "Don't Lose Yourself".

The man should hang his head in shame...Dido, Blunt ...arghhh
