British singer Kimberley Walsh is adamant Girls Aloud will never split, despite bandmate Cheryl Cole predicting the pop group would break up after its upcoming reunion.

The Sound of the Underground hitmakers have recorded a new single to mark their 10th anniversary, and the singers are also heading out on the road next year (13) for a 12-date arena tour.

Cole claimed in her recently published autobiography that she expects the women will then go their separate ways, writing, "We'll be working on a tour and greatest hits album. Then I think that's it for Girls Aloud. We've achieved more than any of us ever dared to dream of."

However, Walsh is convinced the five-piece will never die, insisting, "I don't think we're ever going to split up. I don't think any of us know what's going to happen after the tour. That's as far as we've planned for now. Cheryl wrote the book a long time ago. She obviously wrote it before any of the music, before we had anything in place.

"Whether we go back to doing our solo projects for a while, then come back together again... we'll see how it goes and leave it open. We're in a really privileged position where we can be like, 'Let's do that for while, let's do that for while.' It's the Take That way - it works really well."
