19 October 2012, 14:30

The 'Call The Shots' girl band say it feels like they never even took a three year break from the group.

Girls Aloud says it felt "really normal" to be reunited as a girl band for the first time in three years, and all five girls admitted they prefer being in a group because of the support they give each other.

The 'Sound Of The Underground' five-piece held a press conference this afternoon (19th October) to announce details of a 2013 UK reunion tour and greatest this collection, and have said it felt like the "right time" to reunite together after their hiatus.

"Do you know what's funny? We were all just getting dressed this morning and it just feels really normal," Cheryl Cole revealed during the press conference. "Like nothing's changed. Like we didn't take three years away.

"We always knew we were going to do something," Kimberley Walsh explained, of the decision to reunite now in time for the band's ten year anniversary. "We kind of thought, Ok let's take a little break, and then it's the anniversary. It's ten years and we're going to do this."

She added: "It was the right time."

The 'Call The Shots' band went on to say it felt nice to be back together because they can help support each other on stage and have each other's backs.

"There's four other people. You don't always have to worry about saying the right thing," Nadine Coyle admitted, while Kimberley said: "Basically you just have someone there who's got your back the whole time. It's just the support, it's nice to have it."

Cheryl added: "It's all we've ever known, up to the break. The last three years have been kind of weird [and] this is normal."

As part of the announcement Girls Aloud announced a new 12 date arena tour kicking off on 21st February 2013 with a show in Cheryl's home city of Newcastle.

Girls Aloud launch comeback single 'Something New' on 18th November with greatest hits collection 'Ten - The Hits' out on 26th November.
