Girls Aloud: What's the problem?

Cheryl Cole has confirmed in the latest X magazine that Girls Aloud definitely havent split up.

The X Factor judge who recently topped the Big Top 40 with single, Promise This claimed that the girls would be together before their tenth anniversary in 2012.

"We'd have to mark our 10th year," Cole told the magazine. "It's pretty amazing to be in the industry for that long, and not a lot of people are that lucky. We have to mark that."

Since being formed on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, the group have released five studio albums and gone on to score 20 Top 10 hits. They have continuously denied rumours regarding their split confirming they still have a three-album deal to fulfil.

During their break, each of the girls has ventured out to pursue their own projects all resulting in various levels of success. Whilst Coles career has gone from strength to strength, fellow band mate Nadine Coyles debut solo offering looks set to bomb in this weekends chart.

However Nadine says there's "no reason" why Girls Aloud should not perform together again.

Rumours about the group's future have been rife since they announced in July last year they were taking a year off to concentrate on solo projects.

Despite rumours Coyle had fallen out with the fellow bandmates, she's told ITV's Daybreak there's no excuse if everybody is happy enough to do that.
