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."
The girls tweeted a picture of them having a "last minute huddle" before the conference.
It was also announced today that Girls Aloud have become the biggest selling girl group of the 21st century, based on single sales.
They have racked up sales of nearly 4.3m singles since their 2002 debut 'Sound Of The Underground', which sold over 653,000 copies in the UK. The track is also their fastest selling single, shifting 213,000 copies in its first week.
Over the last decade, Girls Aloud have had 20 top ten singles and four Number Ones, according to the Official Charts Company.
