Girls Aloud to split after tour?
Girls Aloud have reportedly decided to split after their upcoming tour.
The girl group - Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh - recently reunited for a tour and a new album after a hiatus during which they were all working on solo projects.
But according to The Sun, the Something New hitmakers have decided that the upcoming shows will now be their farewell, as they will be their last performances together.
A source said: "The girls have known all along that this would be the last time they would all work together.
"At the press conference to announce the tour, they deliberately dodged questions about future plans because they did not want to spoil the excitement."
It seems Cheryl and co - who released their album, Ten, in November - felt "it wasn't right for them to be singing songs like Love Machine and performing the same way when they're in their thirties".
The insider went on: "They all want to make this a way to bow out on a high and walk away for the next chapter in their lives without constant questions about when they will be getting back together."
