Biography

Nicola Roberts (born 5.10.1985)

Nicola Roberts is a member of the British, all-female pop group Girls Aloud.

Nicola Roberts: Childhood

Nicola Roberts was raised in Runcorn, Cheshire. She has a sister named Frankie and two younger brothers named Harrison and Clayton.

Nicola Roberts: Music Career

Nicola Roberts auditioned for the TV show Popstars: The Rivals, singing a version of Shakira's 'Underneath My Clothes'. Initially, Roberts was eliminated before the final round of the contest. However, when another contestant, Nicola Ward, pulled out of the show when she objected to the show's contract, Roberts was brought back in.

The group Girls Aloud was formed along with Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Cheryl Cole. They did not win the series, but lost out to Hear'Say. However, Girls Aloud have had a far more enduring career than the winners of the contest.

In December 2007, Nicola co-hosted The Friday Night Project (normally hosted by Alan Carr and Justin Lee Collins).

Nicola Roberts made a cameo appearance in a 2008 remake of St. Trinians. She played the part of a schoolgirl, along with the other members of Girls Aloud. She also appeared in Britannia High with Kimberley Walsh.

Nicola Roberts has contributed her songwriting skills to the Girls Aloud albums Chemistry, What Will The Neighbours Say? and 'I Don't Really Hate You', the B-side to 'See The Day'.

Girls Aloud announced in 2009 that, after their support slots with Coldplay (Jay-Z is also on the bill), they would be taking a break for a year. Nicola will be concentrating on her cosmetics range Dainty Doll, which is aimed at people with fair skin. She has also been chosen as the new face of Vivienne Westwood's fashion label.

Nicola Roberts: Personal Life

In December 2006, Nicola Roberts split with Carl Egerton, whom she had been dating for five years. She then dated another Carl, this time the businessman Carl Davies. They had planned to marry but at Sarah Harding's wedding to the DJ Tom Crane, Nicola revealed that her new boyfriend was Charlie Fennell, who she has been dating since September 2008.
