Girls Aloud have dismissed tabloid reports that they are planning to reunite without Northern Ireland girl Nadine Coyle.

A spokesman for the band’s label denied rumours the other four band members were planning to “oust” the Londonderry singer (left).

Reports have suggested that Nadine (25) has been steadily growing apart from Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding since moving to California in 2006.

A source told The Sun: “Relations with her had been strained within the camp for a while. Disputes began cropping up towards the final days of the band before they went on a hiatus.

“The four remaining girls want to return on their own terms — and avoiding any squabbles is a high priority. That's why they have decided to go on without Nadine.”

But the group's spokesperson has denied those reports, saying they had signed a record deal and would be releasing their sixth studio album as a five-piece. No release date has yet been given.

Last month, Coyle admitted she was “in no rush” to reunite the group.
