Reacting to the news on X, fans of the band were ecstatic and many excited at the prospect of seeing them live.

The band will embark on a reunion tour in 2024, which the group announced to commemorate the 21st anniversary of themselves and the late Sarah Harding’s victory on Popstars: The Rivals.

Girls Aloud originally formed in 2002 on ITV’s Pop Stars: The Rivals and rose to fame, achieving 20 top ten singles and five BRIT Award nominations (pictured with Sarah in 2005).

They were referring to missing out on tickets to the band’s 2024 reunion tour, which the group announced to commemorate their 21st anniversary and the late Sarah Harding’s victory on Popstars: The Rivals.

Cheryl revealed the group had been discussing plans for a reunion for some time but put the idea on hold when Sarah, who died in September 2021, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She said in a statement: “We all started talking about the possibility of doing something to celebrate Girls Aloud’s 20th anniversary a few years ago. The anniversary seemed like an obvious thing we would celebrate.

‘But when Sarah became ill, all priorities changed. She passed away a year before her anniversary and she just didn’t seem right to me, she seemed too soon to me.”

The group plans to use the tour to “celebrate” their late friend.

Cheryl added: “But now I think there’s an energy that makes it feel good.” It’s the right time to celebrate Sarah, it’s the right time to celebrate the band and the right time to celebrate the fact that we can still do this 21 years later. “It is a great honor in many ways.”

Girls Aloud originally formed in 2002 and after winning ITV’s Pop Stars: The Rivals rose to fame, achieving 20 top ten singles and five BRIT Award nominations.

The group took an initial break in 2009 to pursue other projects before disbanding for good in 2013.
