Nadine Coyle has spilled all about Girls Aloud's split, claiming she had no say in the decision.
The girl group were formed on Popstars The Rivals back in 2002 and were one of the first - and even to this date, very few - success stories from such reality talent shows.
They split in 2013 following a Greatest Hits tour but it wasn't Nadine's choice to part ways.
Opening up for the first time this week, Nadine recalled how she found out just before the groups' final performance.
“I thought we were going to continue. I thought we were going to do loads and loads of stuff," Nadine explained. "We had songs, we had a three-album deal and it seemed like a great time. Obviously the girls had different plans.
“The very last night, management had come to the room.
"I was all ready, just about to get dressed and they were like, ‘So I know you’re not going to like this, I know you’re not going to agree, but the girls want to split up the band’."
Nadine confirmed there had always been a split in the band with herself and Sarah Harding on one side and Cheryl, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts on the other.
She told The Sun newspaper: "It’s so sad for me to have to admit this stuff now because for so long, there’s the band, and you want everybody to think we’re best friends and we have pillow fights and, you know, drink milkshakes.
“That’s what I wanted it to be. I really, really wanted that to be, but it just wasn’t how it was."
Nadine is now gearing up to release her brand new solo single after signing a new record deal.
Her first song Go To Work is out to download and stream from Friday.
Nadine said: “I’m so excited to be releasing music again. I’m nervous but really happy to be sharing them finally.
“It’s a dream come true to sign a solo deal with a label that’s as brilliant as Virgin EMI.
“The team really share my vision for the album and I can’t wait to start performing again.”
