Girls Aloud took to the stage for the last time as a five-piece last night in Liverpool and confirmed they are to split.
Following the show the girls took to their official Twitter channel to break the much-anticipated news to their fans. In their tweet they said:
Dear Alouders, we just want to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you!! This tour has been an amazing experience and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade. It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter!! Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together . Love you lots.
Rumours first circulated after Cheryl Cole hinted at a split in her 2012 autobiography. The five girls remained coy when quizzed at a press conference in October where they announced their reunion tour.
We’re sad that the girls have decided to part ways but we reckon they’ll be back for another tour in the not too distant future. Mourn the breakup of the band by enjoying their greatest hits using the player below:
