Cheryl Tweedy marked her 35th birthday with a mini Girls Aloud reunion.

The 'Crazy Stupid Love' hitmaker was joined by her bandmates Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh to celebrate the milestone birthday.

Sharing a picture of the trio on Instagram, Nicola wrote: ''Friendship never ends ... Birthday eve love for Chez last night (sic)''

And the flame-haired star also penned a sweet message to Cheryl, thanking her for all the support over the years.

She added: ''I took this in New York a couple of weeks ago when missy (@cherylofficial ) decided to fly out with me to support me at my show. It was the first thing I had done in a v long time and it was just another example of how lovely you are inside.

''And when people were surprised that you had done something so kind all I had to answer with was that's who she is. We were all jet lagged here and over trying to take a pic but it's the only snap I have of us. I know I could throw anything your way and you'd be there trying to figure it out with me. I don't know what I'd do without you. Happy Birthday beautiful (sic)''

The brunette beauty later took to social media to thank her fans and friends for their birthday wishes.

Alongside a selfie, she wrote: ''Go shorty it's my birthday. Thank you so much for all my lovely birthday wishes .. very kind of you (sic)''
