Cheryl Cole is hosting an alcohol free pre-Christmas lunch for her Girls Aloud bandmates this week.

The 'Fight for This Love' singer has invited Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding over to her north London home for a festive get together where she will take charge of cooking but has taken booze off the menu because of Sarah's recent stint in rehab, where she received treatment for alcoholism and depression.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Cheryl is going all out. She has already ordered all the food and is determined to cook everything herself.

"She's doing the full works, turkey with all the trimmings, and the lunch table will be laid with crackers and other traditional Christmas decorations.

"But with Sarah having just left rehab, Cheryl doesn't want to make it into a drunken dinner so isn't planning on having any wine involved.

"It's just a chance for the girls to catch up with each other before Christmas."

It is unclear if fifth member Nadine Coyle will be back in London from Los Angeles - where she is now based - in time for Cheryl's festive fun.

The singer-and-designer has been getting into the festive spirit thanks to her nephews, writing on twitter yesterday (18.12.11): "Only 7 days til Christmas!! Or as the kids keep reminding me its '7 sleeps til Santa' #cute

"I was tidying my clothes out upstairs and here comes the 3 year old with one of his Christmas toys, tearing open the box and telling me "Santas been" ... I don't know whether to laugh or cry ... I think I'll do both haha (sic)"
