Kimberley Walsh has revealed that her friendship with her former Girls Aloud bandmate Nadine Coyle is back on track after years of rift rumours.
The girl group – Walsh, Coyle, Cheryl, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts - was plagued by gossip about in-fighting and feuding and split up in 2013.
Coyle has previously said she didn’t have much of a friendship with the group when they were together and last year admitted that she hadn’t spoken to her bandmates, other than Harding, in six years.
However, according to Walsh, things have picked up since the coronavirus lockdown and she has been chatting to Coyle.
And the singer may even get her two sons Bobby and Cole together with Coyle’s six-year-old daughter Anaíya for a play date.
She told OK! magazine: “I speak to Cheryl and Nicola all the time anyway, but I have been in touch with Nadine and Sarah too.
“Lockdown has been a time for reflection.”
“Nadine and I were chatting the other day and we’re going to get the kids together as they haven’t met yet,” she added.
Walsh’s revelation will delight fans who have been hoping that Girls Aloud will reunite for their 20th anniversary.
This year marks 20 years since the group formed on the TV show Pop Stars: The Rivals, before going to number one with their anthem Sound Of The Underground.
However, Walsh told OK! that “there are no plans in place at the moment”.
