GIRLS Aloud are set to make a comeback after 10 years away from the music industry, according to reports.

Bradford-born Kimberley Walsh, Cheryl Tweedy, Nadine Coyle, and Nicola Roberts have reportedly met up to film a new music video.

The band was formed in 2002 on the ITV talent show Pop Stars: The Rivals and are one of the UK's most successful pop groups of the 21st century.

Girls Aloud achieved a string of twenty consecutive top-ten singles in the UK and sold 4.3 million singles and 4 million albums in the UK alone.

Walsh, who is 41 and is also an actress, has three children - Bobby, eight, Cole, six, and Nate, who turns two in May - with husband Justin Scott.

The 41-year-old hit the big time in 2002 at the tender age of 20 when Girls Aloud won Pop Stars: The Rivals.

The show went through different rounds to discover five female and five male performers, who then formed two separate groups and they pitted it out against each other for Christmas number one, with Girls Aloud's "Sound Of The Underground" taking the top spot.

It was in October 2002, when Walsh was told by show judge Louis Walsh at her Bradford home she had made the final 20, that The Telegraph & Argus first ran a story on the soon-to-be star.

The headline was "Watch out Gareth, here’s Kimberley!” - in reference to the city's hotshot at the time, Gareth Gates, who made it to the final of Pop Idol in 2002.

A T&A article celebrating a decade of Walsh's success in 2012 looked back at her life before fame.

Walsh, who is one of four children, with two sisters Sally and Amy, was two years into studying media and English at Trinity & All Saints College, in Horsforth when she was thrust into the limelight.

She went to school at Beckfoot Grammar, in Bingley and Sandy Lane Primary before that, and was not a complete stranger to show business, as a graduate of both the Stage 84 theatre school in Bradford and the DM Academy dance school.

The big screen beckoned in 2011 when Walsh got a role in the live-action move version of the TV cartoon Horrid Henry, and also the stage, with perhaps Kimberley’s most significant role outside of Girls Aloud – that of Princess Fiona in the West End stage show of Shrek.

Girls Aloud reportedly making new music

The group came back together to release new music and go on tour in 2012, before splitting in March 2013, amid rumours of feuds.

It is reported that Girls Aloud could be dedicating a song to former bandmate Sarah Harding who died of cancer in 2021 aged 39.

A source told The Sun: "This has been one of the best-kept secrets in pop, but it’s actually happening now.

“The girls really came back together as friends to rally around when Sarah died, and it repaired some of the old rifts and put things into perspective.

"Suddenly the reunion which had seemed totally impossible for so long just felt a totally natural thing to do — in Sarah’s honour.”

It is also reported that the band could be going out on tour again in the near future too.

The insider added: “They’ve got a single and a video in the can, plans for a full record of new music, and for the fans the most exciting thing will be a massive reunion tour in 2024.

“It’s going to be huge — and they’re all very excited to be back working together, even if there is a bittersweet element to it.

“Of course, whatever they do, there will always be nods to Sarah’s contribution to the group, too."
