Cheryl Cole proved she knows exactly how to party over the weekend when she teamed up with her former Girls Aloud bandmates Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts for a tequila-fuelled night on the tiles.

The three party pals dusted off their dancing shoes and headed down to exclusive members' club The Box in Soho on Saturday night where they grabbed a bottle of Patron and got down to some serious partying, Girls Aloud-style.

32-year-old Kimberly shared the first photo of the trio's wild night out, posting on Instagram: 'The three musketeers ....#patron #thebox.'

In the photo, Cheryl and Nicola are seen downing shots and pulling their best party pouts at the camera in the world-famous London burlesque club.

The Geordie beauty later re-posted the same photo, this time with the caption: '#regram @kimberleywalshofficial @lilcola the three musketeers !! I think too much time apart makes us go crazy #notwell'.

Clearly feeling the effects of the girls' reckless shot-swigging the following day, Cheryl posted another photo of her dancing on a sofa in front of the DJ booth, wearing a tight black mini dress and her tumbling brunette locks swept to one side.

'That awkward moment when your friends send you pictures from last night that you can't even remember #why #messy', she wrote alongside it.

Oh, we've all been there...
