Girls Aloud are back on the road, and boy we could not be more excited about it!

Cheryl, Nicola, Kimberley, Nadine and Sarah kicked off their 'Ten' reunion tour in Newcastle on Thursday night in a flurry of sparkles, feathers and killer dance moves.

The intensive rehearsals for the jaunt had evidently paid off, with the ladies showing off their amazing figures (and new tattoos in Cheryl Cole's case) in a number of dazzling stage costumes.

The tour also featured a flying bridge made out of the letters of the band's name, raising them off the stage.
