Kimberley Walsh has revealed that a Girls Aloud reunion is on hold as bandmate Sarah Harding’s health takes priority after she was diagnosed with cancer.
The singer confessed that all of the girls in the band have decided to postpone any reunion as Sarah’s health becomes the main focus.
Sarah, 39, was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and spent a fortnight in a coma after being rushed to intensive care with sepsis.
The Girls Aloud star was left unable to speak for weeks, the singer was receiving chemotherapy that she thought was working, with it being reported that a secondary tumour “destroyed her hopes” of the success.
Sarah is said to be refusing radiotherapy treatment on her skull for a tumour as she doesn’t want to lose her hair – with it being claimed there are no health guarantees to follow the treatment.
Kimberley, 39, opened up about how she had been getting together with her fellow bandmates Cheryl, 37, Nadine Coyle, 35, and Nicola Roberts, 35, to look after Sarah.
It is fast approaching the 20 year anniversary of the girl group launching their music career with their smash hit single Sound of the Underground.
When Kimberley, who is expecting her third child, was asked about reunion plans she said that the group were focusing on their bandmate.
She told the Sun : “It’d be lovely to think that there’d be an opportunity at some point to get back on stage with the girls.
“But, obviously, at the moment, we’re all just focusing on being there for Sarah and it’s not where our heads are at.
“But, of course, if that was ever a possibility, it would be something that we would all love!”
The doting mum took the time to reflect on the shout-out she had received earlier this month at the BRIT Awards.
Little Mix mentioned Girls Aloud in their speech as they became the first girl group to ever win Best Band at the awards show earlier this month.
Kimberley said that she “loves” the girls in Little Mix, and that they have always been “big supporters” of their work.
She went on to admit that Nicola had worked with Little Mix “a lot” and writes for them.
Kimberley said Little Mix’s Brits speech mentioning other girlbands was unexpected and a “really lovely gesture”.
The Sound of the Underground singer announced last month that this will be her final child when speaking on James Martin’s Saturday Morning.
She said she doesn’t plan on having any more children because “three is the magic number”.
Kimberley and husband Justin are also parents to sons Bobby, six, and Cole, four.
