Nadine Coyle would reunite with her jealous former Girls Aloud bandmates, if you asked nicely

Bored of idle speculation about a possible Spice Girls reunion? Well, let’s get going with some idle speculation about a Girls Aloud reunion then. Could that happen? There was, after all, some chatter earlier this year that they might reform for the eighteenth or 20th anniversary of their creation on that ‘Pop Stars: The Rivals’ telly show.

“It may happen”, says one-time Girl Aloud Nadine Coyle, even though she’s not aware of any active reunion plans at the moment. Speaking to the i newspaper she says that, whenever she is asked about her former group getting back together, “the answer is always the same: if everything comes together, then yes, I’m a huge supporter of Girls Aloud. I’d never say never to us coming back together”.

But didn’t Coyle once say that her bandmates were “jealous” of her because she got all the best singing bits? “I didn’t say that”, Coyle insists, “how pompous and arrogant would I have to be to say that?” I don’t know. Quite pompous and arrogant I guess.

“But a thing that did cause stress in the band”, she goes on, “was the fact that I was given more lines and the girls didn’t like [producer] Brian [Higgins from pop makers Xenomania] as a result of it. They didn’t like the label as a result of it, and they didn’t like me as a result of it. So it was just circumstances which were out of my control: I didn’t decide who sang what. But … I love my life and I just get on with it”.

How unpompously and unarrogantly put. But could those past tensions between band members – and, it was always assumed, between Coyle and Cheryl Tweedy in particular – stop this non-reunion were busy speculating about? Although she’s not really in touch with her former bandmates anymore, Coyle insisted that “there’s never been any issues with us working together … so I’m sure we’d get on absolutely fine”.

Good times. Now they just need to persuade Victoria Beckham to get on board. Oh no, sorry, wrong idly speculated reunion.
