Girls Aloud on Ten tour

Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Kimberly Walsh, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts have been busy touring the country together this month with 20 gigs for their Ten reunion, but the dates came to an emotional end in Liverpool last night.

Before the gig, Cheryl Cole shared on Twitter: "Last show!!! When did that happen??! It was just five minutes ago we were starting rehearsals! Feel like I've been in a time machine" [sic]

It then wasn't long before a statement was issued on the Girls Aloud Twitter page to announce that their hit making had officially come to an end. It read: "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 news will no doubt sadden fans, though before the Ten tour began, Cheryl did keep followers on their toes by admitting: "We haven't actually made any plans further than the tour", adding that they would have to "wait and see how the fans react" before deciding what to do next.

After ten and half years together, Girls Aloud have racked up six albums, two of which hit the top spot, and four number one singles. No doubt the girls will have plenty of solo endeavours to keep us entertained.
