For all of us Girls Aloud fans, brace yourself for the announcement this morning that the band is dissolving. After their reunion show in Liverpool last night, they told the world
"Dear Alouders, we just want to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you!! This tour has been an amazing experience and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade. It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter!! Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together. Love you lots."
The five girl band comprised of Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding and Kimberly
Wyatt started on their journey ten years ago on the show Popstars where they were put together by the hosts. They went on to become the UK's biggest girl group of all time — oh yes ... even bigger than the Spice Girls! In their time together they racked up 22 top 11 singles and four number one hits. Take a peek at their amazing style evolution over the past decade and let me know which of their looks you liked best!
