Nadine Coyle believes Girls Aloud could reunite as a four-piece in order to mark the band's 20th anniversary and honour their late bandmate Sarah Harding.

Coyle told the Mirror that some form of reunion could be on the cards for next year, speaking in the week of what would've been Harding's 40th birthday.

Harding passed away in September after a struggle with breast cancer which included a masectomy as well as chemotherapy.

Coyle said: "This last year or two has shown that life can change so quickly. It’s taught me life is too precious to be putting things off for the future."

The 37-year-old singer said it remains "surreal" to think of Girls Aloud existing as a four-piece after the loss of Harding, given how recently she passed away.

She added: "It is our 20th anniversary next year and it would be really nice for the fans for us to do something.

"I am so proud of everything we achieved together as a band."
