Girls Aloud are getting back together next year but they’ve reportedly decided it will only work if they ditch Nadine Coyle and start again as a quartet.

Sarah, Nicola, Kimberley and Cheryl have already started planning their comeback and a source revealed: “the future of Girls Aloud lies without Nadine.”

It’s no secret that Nadine has grown apart from her former bandmates and the source confirmed: “Relations with her had been strained within the camp for a while. Disputes began cropping up towards the final days of the band before they went on a hiatus.”

“The four remaining girls want to return on their own terms – and avoiding any squabbles is a high priority. That’s why they have decided to go on without Nadine.”
