British pop group Girls Aloud is to reunite for its tenth anniversary next year (12), according to bandmember Nadine Coyle.
The U.K. girl band took a hiatus in 2009 to allow the singers to concentrate on individual projects, but they have been dogged by split rumours ever since Cheryl Cole's solo career took off.
The stars have been in talks to get back together in 2012 to mark a decade since they were plucked from obscurity on U.K. TV talent show Popstars: The Rivals and Coyle has now confirmed the reunion.
She says, "We always discuss doing a 10-year reunion thing. So that's going to be next year. We're definitely going to do something. But it's a whole huge production. Girls Aloud is not just us five, there's, like, us five plus a ridiculous team of 50 who travel with us, it's amazing."
The band's manager Hilary Shaw adds, "Everybody wants them to make a comeback and it will be next year. Well, it is their tenth anniversary so there will be something.
"They speak all the time, and that includes Cheryl and Nadine with the other girls. Cheryl is keen to get back with the girls and is planning something which could be a one-off or some gigs."
