Girls Aloud to record next albums as a four-piece?

More Girls Aloud speculation, and despite Cheryl Cole last week insisting the Girls were very much still together and still planned to fulfil their current three-album record contract with Polydor, there was more speculation this weekend that all is not well in the Aloud camp.

According to the News Of The World, the problem is Nadine Coyle who, as previously reported, is currently working on a solo album. The tabloid says Coyle pissed off her bandmates by recently telling reporters she had no plans to do anything Girls Aloud-related this year, presumably because of the solo album. Insiders say Coyle hadn’t consulted the other Girls on this issue, and her comments led to Sarah Harding questioning the future of the group, and Kimberley Walsh suggesting they could record a new album as a four-piece Girls Aloud, sans Coyle.

And if you think this all sounds like pointless and idle speculation, look, the NOTW has a source and everything. The source told the paper: “They’re tired of her mucking them around. The girls always had the end of 2010 booked in to record their next album and all of them, other than Nadine, still want to go ahead. If Nadine refuses they could simply go ahead as the four of them. It’s not ideal and they would rather find a way to make it work, but she doesn’t seem to be interested in that”.
