Cheryl Cole assumed it was a good idea to wear a tight fitting leather dress to her pal Kimberly Walsh's birthday party in London last night (November 21, 2012), despite intending to eat until she couldn't eat no more. Cole, 29, opted for the nude coloured dress from The Row, though told fans she had well and truly scoffed her face at the upmarket eatery Zuma.

Donning matching bright orange dresses, the five girls of Girls Aloud took to the stage at the BBC's Children In Need show last night (16th Nov. 2012), marking their first performance of their reunion.
The band that was first created on Pop Idol back in 2002, performed their newest single, aptly titled 'Something New', and performed a dance routine that was a bit of a watered down version of the video. Nadine Coyle, having been asked how it felt to be back on stage, said "That was nerve-wracking! Was that a mistake I made there? Was I supposed to walk forward? All those nervous things!" according to the Mirror. Kimberly Walsh added that "[They]'ve all fallen back into our roles it's as if nothing ever changed. It really does just feel so good to be here."
Nadine, Kimberly, Sarah Harding, Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts have all been pursuing solo careers since going on hiatus in 2009, but have chosen to reform to mark 10 years in the making. Past hits include 'Sound of the Underground', 'Love Machine' and 'Something Kinda Oooh'. Their new single is out on Sunday (18th Nov. 2012) and the album, titled Ten will be released next week, on November 26th.
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."

Girls Aloud have finally unveiled their reunion plans. The girl group, famous for hits such as ‘Sound of the Underground’ and ‘Something Kinda Oooh’ will be releasing a greatest hits album on November 26 and will be following up the album release with a world tour in 2013. Cheryl Cole, who went on to have the most successful solo career, of the five girls (as well as a stint as an X Factor judge) said, at a press conference “We're really excited. It feels like nothing has changed,” BBC reports.
The news arrived in a timely fashion; the announcement was made ten years to the day that the girls first appeared on the ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals. Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberly Walsh were selected to form a girl group and were then pitted against a boy band, One True Voice, in a talent contest. Their debut single, Sound of the `Underground, became a number one hit in the UK – the first of 20 consecutive top 10 singles between 2002 and 2009. One True Voice, on the other hand, split up after just two single releases. “It’s worked out really nicely that it’s our tenth anniversary year” said Nicola Roberts.
Girls Aloud will be releasing a new single ‘Something New,’ on November 18, 2012. Fans who pre-order the album this weekend will be given a chance to buy concert tickets for next year’s tour before they go on public sale.
After a three year hiatus, Girls Aloud, the most successful reality-tv music act of all time (according the Guinness World Records), are to reunite and hopefully continue their successes. True to form of almost every contemporary music act, their new single 'Something New' has been leaked online, although it has already been removed from the website upon which it originally appeared.
Girls Aloud relaunched their website last week with a ten day countdown on the site, which inspired and reinforced the rumours about their reunion. The official announcement of their come back was supposed to be this Friday, but it seems the leak of the video is enough evidence to confirm to all that they have definitely reunited. But for how long? NME report that Cheryl Cole hinted in her autobiography that this reunion will be brief. The book apparently suggests a greatest hits album and a 10th anniversary tour. She wrote: “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.”
Heat Magazine tried to describe the single by saying that it's a mix of David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, and some bits that “sound a lot like the "neeeeeoooooww" bits in Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.” We are somewhat unconvinced...
The Girls Aloud reunion is on, and it’ll be marked by a special performance on Strictly Come Dancing by the girls, reports The Mirror.
Three long years after their last live performance, and the Girls Aloud website creaks back to life, displaying a counter which, if everyone’s done their maths right, should see the comeback land on October 19, 2012, which has fuelled speculation that their much anticipated reunion will be marked with a performance on BBC dancing competition, Strictly Come Dancing. Nicola Roberts first let the gossip slip in August whilst speaking to This Morning. She said: "It's our 10th birthday in November so we will definitely celebrating." Adding: "I wanna tell you everything but I really can't!" Well that wasn’t exactly cryptic, was it, Nicola? Now an official Girls Aloud Twitter account, whose only tweet has been ‘TEN’, which has since been re-tweeted by all five band members, has all but confirmed the reunification of the popular girl group.
We don’t think many of you will argue when we say that Cheryl Cole has been the most prominent member of the group; the Newcastle born singer has enjoyed a solo career in the Girl Aloud hiatus, judging on The X-Factor, crashing cars with Will.i.am and writing a new book, Cheryl: My Story, which will be out this Thursday, October 11.
Despite rumours of infighting, Cheryl Cole’s continuing success and Kimberly Walsh’s stage ambitions, Girls Aloud are confirmed to be returning with new material and a nationwide tour. Now, it has emerged that Cheryl’s forthcoming appearance on Strictly Come Dancing will be anything but a solo performance.
According to insiders, the pop superstar will be joined by band-mates Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and current Strictly contestant Kimberly Walsh. “It's an amazing slap in the face for Simon Cowell and proves that Cheryl really wants Strictly to beat her old show,” an insider privy to the deal told the Daily Star. Though the media appear set on reporting a Cole versus X Factor feud (Cowell famously sacked her from the U.S version of the show), it didn’t stop the Geordie singer from signing up as Gary Barlow’s sidekick for the ITV show. Nevertheless, it seems the girl-group have decided on the BBC as the stage for their return and it’s likely they will sing live on the show in November (when Cole was initially pencilled in to perform her single Screw You). Kimberly may well still be in contention for the Strictly crown by then; currently she’s the second favourite with the bookies at 10-3. British athlete Louis Smith remains the favourite at 9-4.
Kimberley, Nicola and Cheryl were photographed together at the Whisky Mist nightclub in London on Sunday evening (Oct 7, 2012), following the latter’s solo show at the O2 arena.
Cheryl Cole’s boyfriend Tre Holloway was supposed to be one of the star dancers in her new shows. When he injured his knee on a trampoline, though, he was forced to pull out of the shows. Determined to support Cheryl, regardless, he could be found handing out drinks backstage instead. Tre was seen hobbling around at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena, where he was dishing out Bollinger champagne and coffee-flavoured tequila. It looks as though he may be trying to get himself back into Cheryl’s good books, after she expressly told him not to go on the trampoline in the first place, The Mirror reports. Tre should be returning to Cheryl Cole’s A Million Lights Tour before long, though.
Luckily for the former Girls Aloud singer, her show went well, even without her favourite dancer onstage with her. Though it wasn’t all plain sailing, as she suffered a bit of a wardrobe malfunction part way through the set: “I split my trousers,” she told The Mirror. “There’ll no doubt be some scenes on YouTube... I had to safety pin them.” And one girl tried to pull her hair, as she walked into the crowd – much to her dismay: “I was, like, ‘you’re supposed to be a fan!’” exclaimed Cheryl.
Apparently, Cheryl’s particularly looking forward to the two-night homecoming gigs in Newcastle. When she plays the O2 Arena in London on Sunday (October 7, 2012), she’s expecting to meet up with her old Girls Aloud pals, Nicola Roberts, Kimberly Walsh and Sarah Harding – though they’re not expected to be joining her onstage this time, more’s the pity. A Girls Aloud reunion is in the pipeline though, she reassured us: “we’re gonna do something later, so this wasn’t really the time.”
