A PR representative for the UK girl band says reports are "untrue" about the group being lined up for the show.

Girls Aloud have denied speculation today (18th January) that they are in the running to represent the UK at this year's Eurovision Song Contest.

The 'Something New' five-piece were rumoured to be in line to sing for their country at the event in Malmo, Sweden this year, however a representative for the girl band has since denounced the claims as "ridiculous".

"The story isn't true," Girls Aloud's PR company Supersonic tweeted this morning, in response to rumours of their involvement. "So ridiculous."

Girls Aloud reunited in November 2012 after spending much of the past three years working on various solo projects, and celebrated their reunion with the release of a greatest hits collection called 'Ten - The Hits'.

The 'Call The Shots' band then gave one of their first major live performance in years when they played the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball 2012 in December, while band member Cheryl Cole also played a solo set during the two-day event.

The girl band's greatest hits collection features a number of new songs including recent single 'Something New', and the group have not ruled out recording more new music together in the future.

Girls Aloud's reunion tour is set to begin late next month when they launch the 'Ten' tour at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena (21st February).
