Girls Aloud 'won't ever split' says Kimberley Walsh


Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts will stay as Girls Aloud forever. Apparently.

Those are the words of Kimberley at least, who reckons the group will keep on going long after their new tour.

Despite all the reports and rumours suggesting it'll be goodbye for good after their greatest hits concert ends next month, Kimberley is keen to insist nothing is for definite about their future.

Speaking about a split, she said: "I just can’t see it happening.

"Why would we stop doing tours or making records? It’s a joy to do. There’s no reason why we can’t keep going through our OAP years."

The tour will see Girls Aloud celebrate their tenth year together, having started as a manufactured pop group on ITV1 series Popstars: The Rivals back in 2002.

It's been quite a journey for Bradford beauty Kimberley, who told the Daily Mail: "When Girls Aloud became successful I realised I was too soft for the music business. I was the oldest in the band, so it fell to me to take charge.

"I looked after the finances and ran the company simply because one of us had to be organised. I got a reputation for being the bossyboots in the band. But we needed one and I was the only one ready to take on that role."

And making the band during the live final all those years ago has changed Kimberley's life for ever.

She added: "Growing up there wasn’t a lot of money, but there was always music. There were no computer games and we couldn’t afford the latest toys, so we made our own entertainment.

"I used to put on shows with my brother and sisters, performing my own versions of Annie, Grease, Dirty Dancing and The Sound of Music to anyone who was prepared to listen."
