Girls Aloud have reassured fans they will not be splitting any time soon.
The group’s future has been in doubt after Cheryl Cole made the announcement she was working on solo material, in addition to her other job as a judge on reality TV show ‘The X Factor’.
Also this week Sarah Harding added fuel to the recent rumours by telling Heat magazine she wanted a break, as well as appearing in the BBC drama ‘Freefall’.
Writing on their official website Girlsaloud.co.uk, the five-piece rubbished the recent rumours and assured Girls Aloud will continue and co-exist with solo projects.
The message read: “We’ve decided to write this note together, because we want to set the record straight about what is happening in our world. Over the next 12 months we are going to be involved in a lot of different things – music, TV, fashion and more. Sometimes it may be a solo project – sometimes just a couple of us and sometimes all five of us together.”
The message continued with a promise of a new album.
It stated: “We are definitely NOT splitting up. In fact we have all signed a new contract with Fascination/Polydor Records guaranteeing that we will release at least three Girls Aloud albums – minimum.
“We will definitely all be going into the studio next year to record – and there will definitely be a new GA album in 2010.”
