The girls will perform 'Something New', their first single since 2009's 'Untouchable' which leaked on Tuesday, on Children In Need (16 November) and complete a UK tour including London's O2 Arena on 1 and 2 March.

Girls Aloud are celebrating a decade at the top of the pop game, when asked which moment has been the biggest highlight over the past 10 years, Kimberley said: "When we won the Brit award that was a really amazing night for all of us."
