Kimberley Walsh clears up Girls Aloud reunion claims after Sarah Harding death: ‘We’re not ready to get back on stage yet’

Kimberley Walsh revealed that her late bandmate Sarah Harding asked for a Girls Aloud reunion before her tragic death.

The singer died in September last year at the age of 39 after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Nadine Coyle recently confirmed that she and Cheryl, Kimberley, and Nicola Roberts will get back together for one night only in a bid to raise funds for crucial medical equipment that could diagnose cancer sooner.

During Wednesday’s edition of BBC’s Morning Live, co-host Gethin Jones asked Kimberley if she could tease anything about the upcoming special but squashed suggestions the band would be performing as a four-piece.

‘I feel like I need to clear this up a little bit,’ said the musician.

‘There won’t be a reunion as such, we’re not going to be getting back onstage. We still don’t feel ready to get back on stage without Sarah.

‘But we are planning an industry fundraiser for her in her memory to raise as much money as we possibly can for Cancer Research.’

When Gethin told Kimberley that this was an event that Sarah was ‘keen’ for the band to do, she replied: ‘She did. She asked us to do this, so it’s really important for us that we make it a big event, but it’s all about that.’

No further details have been shared over the Girls Aloud event, but fans will no doubt be over the moon to see The Promise hitmakers back together for the first time in nearly 10 years.

In October 2021, Kimberley stressed that a reunion wasn’t on the cards following Sarah’s death.

‘It’s not really something we’re even thinking about obviously, with the situation as it is. No one is even in that headspace right now,’ she told The Sun.

Girls Aloud were formed on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and enjoyed a successful run over 10 years with four number one singles.

Following their initial split in 2009, they reunited in 2012 for a greatest hits tour and album but went on another hiatus after.

Morning Live airs weekdays at 9.15am on BBC One.
