Girls Aloud: "We Needed Lyric Sheets When We Started Jingle Bell Ball Rehearsals"

The 'Long Hot Summer' stars chat to Capital ahead of their opening performance at London's O2 Arena today.

Girls Aloud have been speaking to Capital FM ahead of their hugely anticipated performance at the Jingle Bell Ball 2012 today (9th December).

The group are preparing to make their first arena tour performance since they announced details of their comeback – which will include a 2013 arena tour early next year.

However, the band admitted that when they started rehearsing for their Jingle Bell Ball performance, they required a few prompts for the lyrics in some of their older songs.

"You know what, we needed lyric sheets for every single song – it was so funny," revealed Kimberly Walsh, as Cheryl quipped: "I don't know if we should be sharing that."

Kimberly clarified: "The older songs. There were just a few lines that people just made up their own words."

Cheryl, who performed a solo set on day one of the show last night (8th December) added that she even struggled to work out who was singing which part.

Check out a picture of the band during rehearsals this past week below:

Laughing she said:"I was singing Kimberley's lines and she was like 'Cheryl, you don't sing that' and I was like 'I'm sorry'."

Nicole added: "Cheryl had like made her own part up in 'The Promise' and I was like 'I like what you've done there, freestyling."

The band were in high spirits and said they are very much "excited" to hit the stage this evening.

The five-piece perform on a line-up which includes the likes of Conor Maynard, The Wanted and closing act Pink.
