Girls Aloud Split! So What Will They Do Now?

Girls Aloud have announced they're splitting just hours after playing their final tour date. Although this news is a little hard to swallow *chokes back tears* it's not exactly surprising. No sooner than Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine, Sarah and Nicola hopped off stage, confirmation of their split was announced on Twitter.

"Dear Alouders, we just want to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you!! This tour has been an amazing experience and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade," read the message.

"It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter!!

"Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together . Love you lots."

The band had previously hinted at a split after confessing they had no plans together after the end of the reunion tour. At a press conference last year, Chezza said, "We haven't actually made any plans further than the tour" before adding that they would "wait and see how the fans react" before deciding what to do next.

So, what are the gals going to do to keep themselves busy now that it's O.V.E.R? Here's what we reckon...

Cheryl will try and crack the States... again
She tried it once before and we're pretty sure she'll try her hand across the pond again.

Nadine will go back to the OC to salvage her bar
Nadine's Irish Mist (great name) has been having a little tax trouble as of late, sure the Ten Tour was a good distraction but Nads needs to pay her bills.

Sarah will catch some much-needed shut eye
Party girl Harding should definitely take a nap she looks like she could do with one. Reckon she'll heed this advice or will she be kicking up her heels and painting the town red in no time?

Kimberley will land herself a spot as a judge on a talent show
C'mon it's only a matter of time until the Walshster finds herself sat alongside the likes of Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger, agreed?

Nicola will launch a clothing line
She's already done the makeup thing, so isn't it about time she pairs up with fash pal Henry Holland and got down to designing some Nineties-inspired garb?
