Girls Aloud start countdown to 10th anniversary announcement

The girl group will be revealing their reunion plans next week

Girls Aloud have teased their 10th anniversary reunion with a countdown on their official website.

The five-piece relaunched their official website, Girlsaloud.com, earlier today, kicking off a 10-day countdown to a special announcement.

An official Twitter account for the girl group was also set up today. So far, the account’s only tweet reads: “TEN http://www.girlsaloud.com #GirlsAloud”.

It is thought that the band will be releasing a brand new single next week. Earlier this year they were working on new material with production and songwriting team Xenomania.

Girls Aloud have also reportedly been lined up to play this year’s Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall on November 19.

The pop group released their last studio album ‘Out Of Control’ in 2008, but back in March singer Nadine Coyle confirmed that the band would reform for an arena tour in 2013 to celebrate their 10-year anniversary.

Girls Aloud originally formed on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and went on to have major chart success before going on hiatus in July 2009, to allow band members Cheryl Cole, Kimberly Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Sarah Harding to pursue other projects.
