Louis Walsh still singing praises of Girls Aloud's Nadine
Irish pop impresario Louis Walsh has revealed he always thought Londonderry's Nadine Coyle had the best voice in Girls Aloud - and that the other band members were upset by his view.
Walsh (65) - who managed a welter of big name bands including Westlife and Boyzone, as well as Girls Aloud - told the Irish Times: "I said (Nadine) had the best voice and the other girls hated me for it.
"It didn't work out."
The pop svengali also felt it was time for a Girls Aloud reunion.
"They'd do really, really well.
"If Bananarama could do it, why can't Girls Aloud do it?" former X Factor judge Walsh also told The Sun newspaper.
But he won't be managing the comeback. "Girls are too much trouble," he said.
