Nadine Coyle says launching a Girls Aloud reunion would be like “moving a mountain”.

The girl band, who found fame in 2002 on TV talent show Popstars: The Rivals, went on hiatus on 2009 before splitting in 2013.

“I was losing sight of myself and started to get anxiety and stress,” she said. “You work at such a pace and you don’t have time to sit with yourself.”

Coyle had daughter Anaiya with former American football star Jason Bell in 2014 and they later split after a 11-year relationship.

“There are no issues, no stress,” the ex-I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star told Hello!

“We’re not together as a couple, but I see him every day. We get on great. We were always best friends.”
