Is Britney moving to Sussex?
Britney Spears is the latest celebrity to spark speculation that she's moving to Sussex. Talk has been rife in Northchapel, that the pop princess wants to set up home in the pretty village. Rumours started after one of Britney's friend revealed the star had her heart set on buying Frith Hill House, a £2.5 million, ten-bedroom mansion. It is just three miles from Kirdford where Robbie Williams is renting a mock castle.

Britney, 23, would join a host of other celebrities, including actress Julie Walters and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones, in buying a home in the area. Like Robbie, she may be hoping to benefit from the peace and quiet of a quintessential English village.

Villagers are already planning ways of bumping into the star if she does buy the mansion.
Eddie Warren, 34, of St Michael's Close, said- "It would be nice to see her do a concert on the green in the summer. People would probably be buying dogs left, right and centre so they could walk them past the house."
Teresa Sandieson, 57, landlady at the Half Moon pub, said- "I think a lot of men would be leering after her if she came down here."
Barmaid Sharon Hill, 22, said- "I'm not that bothered really. If Robbie was moving into Northchapel I might be interested."
Chris Warner, 47, of Petworth Road, said- "It would definitely get the male vote if Britney moved here. I can see why she'd want to live here, the house is quite far out of the village so she would get her privacy. I don't imagine she'd spend much time there though. I can't see her coming to the pub to do karaoke. "The area's becoming quite a hot spot for celebrities."

The parish of Northchapel, which sits two miles south of the county border with Surrey, is home to 775 people and covers 3,500 acres.
