Girls Aloud fans believe that Nicola Roberts has started to tease the group’s rumoured reunion after a cryptic video appeared on her social media accounts.

Rumours of the reunion first emerged earlier this month when The Sun claimed that Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh had met up in secret to record a new track that will be dedicated to their late bandmate Sarah Harding, who died from cancer in 2021.

The newspaper claimed that the four bandmates have met up in secret to record the song at a North London studio, while a tour is set to take place next year.

Now, a new graphic shared on Nicola Roberts’ social media has kick-started the rumour mill once again. It features a ‘four’ in a countdown, projected on a screen while an urban evening cityscape is also seen.

Roberts was the only member to share the graphic, leading fans to suggest that the other members of the group may share their own on the other days.

A source told The Sun: “This has been one of the best-kept secrets in pop, but it’s actually happening now.

“The girls really came back together as friends to rally around when Sarah died, and it repaired some of the old rifts and put things into perspective. Suddenly the reunion which had seemed totally impossible for so long just felt a totally natural thing to do — in Sarah’s honour.”

A new music video reportedly sees the group assuming the roles of superhero characters, wearing Wonder Woman-style costumes and capes.

An insider added: “They’ve got a single and a video in the can, plans for a full record of new music, and for the fans the most exciting thing will be a massive reunion tour in 2024.

“It’s going to be huge — and they’re all very excited to be back working together, even if there is a bittersweet element to it.

“Of course, whatever they do, there will always be nods to Sarah’s contribution to the group, too.”

The iconic girl group first to fame in 2009 after winning Popstars: The Rivals and went on to become one of the UK’s biggest groups, selling millions of records, four No 1s, and five BRIT Award nominations. 

They first parted ways in 2009, before reuniting for a 10th anniversary tour in 2012. Their last show together took place in March 2013.
