Girls Aloud fans across the country have been delighted by the revelation that Girls Aloud will be reuniting for a tenth anniversary album and tour. The album will be aptly titled 'Ten' which will be released on November 26th 2012, and will be followed by a 12 date tour in 2013.
It was exactly ten years ago today (19th Oct 2012) that the multi-platinum selling girl band first appeared on the original reality talent TV show Popstars: The Rivals, which pitted a girlband against a boyband in the race to Christmas number 1. Girls Aloud won, marking the first of many successes.
The greatest hits album will include four new songs, including the new Children in Need song 'Something New', plus there'll be the possibility to get a deluxe edition with extra features as well. Reported by the BBC Cheryl Cole said "We're really excited. It feels like nothing has changed."
The news has been slightly shadowed by reports that Sarah Harding wasn't entirely comfortable at the press conference in which they reported the news. The Mirror said that when she spoke "she mainly came out with one liners which seemed to refer to her troubles." such as "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." However, we feel the first-night jitters are bound to get the best of some people, particularly after a long three year hiatus.
Girls Aloud are set to perform their new single for the first time on November 16th as part of Children In Need on BBC1.
