Girls Aloud to Reunite

Updated on October 11, 2012

The Girls are Back to Mark Their 10th Birthday

Speculation about a Girls Aloud reunion has been rife ever since the girls decided to go their separate ways three years ago but it was earlier this year that band member Nicola Roberts gave the greatest hope of all to Girls Aloud fans everywhere. In an interview on UK television, Roberts hinted that plans were being put into place to mark their 10 years in the business. Almost letting the secret slip, she hinted that the milestone event would be marked in a special way.

Rivals to Stardom


It was in 2002 that the UK music scene was introduced to the five girls that went on to be one of the greatest selling acts in UK music history. Cheryl Tweedy, Kimberly Walsh, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts were the winning act on the ITV music reality show 'Popstars - The Rivals'. The group immediately filled a gap in the UK popular music scene and went on to score hits with; Sound of the Underground, Love Machine and Biology.

The group played numerous sell-out arena tours and enjoyed chart success but three years ago, the groups future looked uncertain. There was increased speculation about rifts in the band, something which the girls were quick to dismiss, but as the girls pursued solo projects it looked as though it might be the end for Girls Aloud.

Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder

All the girls went on to be successful with individual projects with Sarah landing acting roles, Kimberley enjoying roles in television presenting and Nadine launching a solo career. One member who has never left the public eye though is Cheryl. It has been a rocky few years for the plucky singer with a breakdown of her marriage and her being dropped from the US version of The X Factor.

The girls seem to have put their turbulent times behind them and are not set to reform, for how long though is anyone's guess.

Mysterious Messages

On October 9th 2012 the official Girls Aloud website was relaunched which featured a countdown clock with the word 'TEN' above it. The clock seemed to symbolise the countdown to the reunion. A Girls Aloud Twitter account was also opened which to date has just the one tweet, a link to the official website, again with the word 'TEN'.

Many have speculated that their reunion will happen as part of the BBC1 show Strictly Come Dancing. Band member Kimberly Walsh is currently taking part in the show and the countdown timer coincides with a broadcast due to take place on 19th October.

The Twitter message has been Re-tweeted by all five member of the band including Sarah who joined Twitter just days earlier. The girls are expected to release a Greatest Hits album in time for Christmas and there are also rumours that a charity single for Children In Need may be planned though as yet, nothing has been confirmed.
