Bridesmaid Cheryl Fernandez-Versini put her own marital woes behind her to celebrate bandmate Kimberley Walsh's final days as an unmarried woman with a raucous 'Last Wild Night' hen do.
The pair joined Girls Aloud's Nicola Roberts, another of the eight bridesmaids, to let their hair down at a London hotspot on Friday before Walsh walks down the aisle at a secret tropical destination later this month with property developer and former Triple 8 band member Justin Scott.
Fernandez-Versini told Hello! magazine: "Kimberley is just the best friend you could wish for. I'm so excited for the wedding. It is a celebration of two people in love that we've all been a part of, and I am so excited to celebrate their love story.
"I always have fun when it comes to my girls."
But Walsh revealed her famous bridesmaid would be to blame if she was found sobbing at her wedding.
The 34-year-old confessed that Fernandez-Versini and her sisters are guaranteed to "set her off" on her big day.
She said: "I used to be good at keeping up an icy exterior but since I had (16-month-old son) Bobby, I'm so much more emotional.
"I'm slightly worried about the wedding to be honest. A few happy tears are fine, but I don't want to spend the whole day sobbing, so I'm going to have to be careful about even looking at Cheryl and my sisters."
