Comprised of Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts, and Kimberly Walsh, Girls Aloud formed in 2002 on hit ITV series Pop Stars: The Rivals. Together they enjoyed an incredibly successful run – notching up 20 consecutive top ten singles between then and 2009 when they took a “break”. In the years since, each member has ventured into solo territory with varying results – Cheryl Cole, on the back of her X Factor exposure (vs her talent), being the most successful.
