Nadine Coyle stoked speculation of a widening Girls Aloud rift yesterday when she admitted she has had no contact with her band-mates.

The Derry singer, back in the UK to promote her solo debut single ‘Insatiable’, told Scott Mills: “We’ve not seen each other for a while.”

And she added pointedly: “My number hasn’t changed.”

Her comments on Radio One came after the 25-year-old revealed to Ryan Tubridy on RTE that she had texted Cheryl Cole during her recent illness, but had received no reply.

When asked if Cole had been seriously ill with malaria, Coyle said: “I don’t know. I really don’t know.

“I texted to make sure she was all right and everything, but I think she must have been busy or whatever.”

Tubridy asked if that was “because she didn’t get back to you”, and Coyle agreed.

However, Coyle also insisted during yesterday’s Radio 1 interview that Girls Aloud have not split and are just taking a break.

Rumours have been circulating for months now that Coyle is set to quit the five-piece pop band to live in LA permanently and concentrate on her solo career.

In an interview earlier this year, Nicola Roberts said she had not spoken to Coyle since the band had supported Coldplay at Wembley in September 2009. And Kimberley Walsh also seemed to have a go at Coyle when she said the band was waiting for her to return from LA so they could discuss the future of Girls Aloud.
