Girls Aloud announce TEN reunion album and tour plans

Cheryl Cole

Girls Aloud have today announced their plans for a new album and tour to celebrate their tenth anniversary.

The group were formed on Popstars The Rivals back in 2002, an ITV1 reality show which saw Geri Halliwell, Pete Waterman and now X Factor judge Louis Walsh on the panel.

In 2009 the girls went on a break, but today were back together at a special event in London.

The group confirmed that their new single, Something New, would be released on November 18 as this year's Children In Need song.

They'll be performing the track live for the first time on Children In Need on Friday, November 16 on BBC One.

Their new greatest hits album TEN will follow a week later, with fans being given the chance to vote on which tracks make it onto the record.

The album will also feature four new songs, including Something New.

Girls Aloud - Cheryl, Nadine, Kimberley, Sarah and Nicola - also revealed plans for their reunion tour.

The group will be going on the road in the Spring with their second greatest hits tour, with dates in London, Manchester and Glasgow.

Speaking at the event, Cheryl said: "It feels normal to be back together, it doesn't feel like we've taken three years off."

The group didn't confirm whether they would split permanently after the tour, with Nadine Coyle saying: "There's something amazing about us performing together. We've got loads of new songs, we'll have to see how the fans react."
