Rumours of a Girls Aloud reunion have been doing the rounds for a while now much to our nostalgic delight, but props to Nadine Coyle who has just confirmed “conversations” are definitely taking place.
But before you get too excited about Nadine, Cheryl, Sarah, Nicola and Kimberley reuniting, you’ll have to wait until 2020 to see them in action again as that will mark 20 years since they formed on Popstars: The Rivals. And, yes, we feel old too.
Nadine spilled the news during a chat with Angela Scanlon on her Thanks a Million podcast, which will be out tomorrow [Tuesday 28 April].
In quotes obtained by The Sun, she said: “There’s been loads of conversations and people now are getting in contact, like, ‘What do we do?’ It’s still early.
“I’m 34 years old so to think that I’ve been doing anything for 20 years is shocking, isn’t it?”
Kimberley also recently opened up about a reunion, and didn’t totally rule it out, which is something.
“It will have been 20 years in 2022, it’s a long way off still,” she told The Sun. “Everybody is busy at the moment, but I have a lot of love for all the girls, I’m proud of all of them.”
The singer continued: “All the songs feel like a distant memory, but if I hear them then I think they’re good, I’m glad I still get to spend time with the girls and see them. Our outfits were racy, but we were girls’ girls and about looking glamorous and having something to aspire to.”
In 2009, the band went on a hiatus while they focused on solo projects. They reunited in 2012 before eventually splitting up the following year after completing their UK tour.
Hot on the heels of the JLS reunion news, this makes us very happy indeed.
