Singer Louise Redknapp has become involved in a legal case involving Peppa Pig.

The company behind the hit TV kids’ show has been accused of infringing the copyright of Louise's 1996 hit Naked in a song sung by the cartoon pig.

A press release about the album described the tune a "toe-tapping dance number".
