Girls Aloud fans all over the world are desperate for Cheryl Tweedy, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts to reunite for their 20th anniversary in 2022. Although they’re all saying there are currently “no plans” for anything to happen, Kimberley has revealed that they could be one step closer.
It’s no secret that when the band split in 2013 after their 10th anniversary in 2012, things were not exactly friendly between them. Cheryl, Nicola and Kimberley had always got on better, and Sarah and Nadine were good friends too – but there have always been rumours that the two groups did not see eye to eye.
When Nadine appeared in the I’m A Celeb…! jungle last year, she opened up about the alleged ‘feud’, admitting that although she doesn’t speak to the other four at all, there was no ‘bad blood’ between them.
And it sounds as though that really is the case now, as Kimberley has admitted she’s been burying the hatchet with Nadine and Sarah during lockdown, calling it a time for “reflection.”
When asked whether she’d been in touch with her four bandmates throughout lockdown, she told OK! magazine, “Yes. I speak to Cheryl and Nicola all the time anyway, but I have been in touch with Nadine and Sarah, too. Lockdown has been a time for reflection.”
She added that she’d been straight round to Cheryl’s as soon as the restrictions were lifted, and had even organised a meet-up with Nadine, too. “Nadine and I were chatting the other day,” she explained, “and we’re going to get the kids together as they haven’t met yet.”
With regards to a potential reunion, Kimberley said, “Everyone asks about us reuniting but there are no plans in place at the moment.” We’ve still got two years, people!
