The singer thanked two of her former bandmates in particular
A decade and a half ago five unsuspecting ladies sang their way into the hearts of the public and formed the ultimate 00s girl group on Popstars The Rivals: Girls Aloud. Now one fifth of the group - Cheryl Tweedy/Cole/Fernandez-Versini - has taken to social media to celebrate but with a shaded twist.

It wasn't always easy being part of Girls Aloud.
Being in a girlband might sound like the ultra glamorous lifestyle that every young woman dreams about, but the reality is often far from it. Kimberley Walsh has revealed just how much of a toll it took on her to maintain her slim figure while in Girls Aloud.

As Kimberley Walsh becomes the second member of Girls Aloud to jump on the baby train, we dig up some facts on the former Girls Aloud singer.
Earlier this month former Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle gave birth to her first baby daughter. Nadine announced to her Twitter followers on February 10th: ‘I am overjoyed to let you know that our little girl is here. She is amazing! I love being a mammy & will fill you all in soon’ and has since not updated her profile, clearly she is taking time off from social media to enjoy spending time with the new addition to her family.
Kimberley has announced she is pregnant with her first child
Fellow Girls Aloud alumni, Kimberley Walsh, took to the social media site this afternoon to let fans know that she will also become ‘a mammy’ (Nadine’s words - not Kimberley’s!) before the year is out. Kimberley tweeted this afternoon: ‘Justin and I are so happy to let you all know we are having a baby!! Couldn’t wait to share our lovely news with you all’. Her best friend Cheryl was also overjoyed by the news, taking to Instagram to congratulate her former band mate.
There were tears all-round at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Wednesday as Girls Aloud called time on their hugely successful career.
Girls Aloud have officially called time on their stunning career in pop music after playing a final show in Liverpool on Wednesday evening (March 20, 2013). The show at the Echo Arena capped a 12-date sold-out farewell tour in the UK, following ten hugely successful years together for the girl group. "We have now come to the end of our incredible time together," read a tweet on the band's official account.
Girls Aloud formed after appearing on reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, going straight to No.1 with their debut single 'Sound of the Underground,' and easily seeing off the competition from hapless rival band One True Voice. The group, made up of Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts, achieved a string of 22 consecutive hit singles, including four No.1's. Cole - the most successful of the group - tweeted after the Liverpool gig, "I love you @GirlsAloud fans so so so so so much! You have given me everything!" adding, "To the people that haven't been able to make it, for whatever reason, we feel your support regardless and have done for 10 yrs."

Vertigo Film's 'All-Stars' looks to be a good old fashioned feel-good family flick.
Ashley Jensen stars as a youth worker trying to save her local centre in feel-good 3-D British comedy 'All-Stars,' set for release in May 2013. Just as 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' flew under the radar to become a UK hit last year, we predict 'All-Stars' could enjoy similar success with its solid British cast, which includes Jensen, Mock The Week star Hugh Dennis and Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh.
Written by TV scribe Paul Gerstenberger (Primeval, Paradise Café), 'All-Stars' sees a group of streetwise kids take matters into their own hands when their club is threatened with closure. It all looks good fun, with the kids holding auditions for a talent contest which throws up some great, and not-so-great acts. In the end, street dancer Jayden (Akai Osei-Mansfield) is forced to team up with the loud-mouthed Ethan (Theo Stevenson) to stop the closure of the afterschool club.
Ethan and Jaden are two street kids with a close knit group of friends, Amy, Tim, Rebecca and Brian, who they enjoy spending time with at the Old Garage youth centre in their town run by Gina. However, the small venue has become more of a problem than a necessary building in the eyes of the council who wish to demolish it unless they can cough up enough cash to own it. In an attempt to raise a few pounds, Ethan and Jaden put forward an idea to Gina; to put on acts in a show and sell tickets. Initially sceptical at first, the worried Gina soon allows them free reign as they audition a variety of talent from martial artists to BMXers and skateboarders as well as a several street dancers. Will the kids manage to save their beloved centre, or will their only inspiration for their passions be bulldozed to the ground despite all their efforts?

Kimberly Walsh is having to undertake physiotherapy after suffering a knee injury on the tenth series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The Girls Aloud singer has developed iliotibial band syndrome but hopes to be fully recovered by the weekend when she will perform a salsa routine with her professional partner Pasha Kovalev. The condition is the result of strenuous, repeated exercise more commonly associated with running, cycling, hiking or weight-lifting. 'I've got a bit of a bad knee which is causing me a bit of trouble', the star told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat. 'But I'm getting physio every day and I'm crossing everything that I'll be able to salsa this weekend.'
And it's no wonder she's caused some damage; she must've been doing some pretty intense rehearsing for last weekend's routine which earned her her highest score of the series so far. She got 31 points from the judges which put her in an impressive second place. Her dance moves seem to be attracting the attention of other dancers too, with Louis Smith confessing that he thought she was 'beautiful' leading us to believe he was harbouring a little crush on the 30-year-old. However, he has since denied this, telling reporters at Cosmopolitan's Ultimate Women of The Year Awards 2012: 'I don't have a crush on Kimberley Walsh. I got asked if I think she is good looking and I said that she is beautiful. Then in the papers the next day, I had a crush on her.' We believe you, Louis!
Date of birth
