Girls Aloud in reunion

GIRLS Aloud have confirmed their comeback four years after the chart-topping girlband released their last album.

The group -- who celebrate their 10th anniversary next month -- put a countdown clock on their website, marking nine days until Friday, October 19.

Girls Aloud are expected to perform on Strictly Come Dancing, BBC1's rival show to Simon Cowell's X Factor, with band member Kimberley Walsh currently competing on the ballroom dancing show.

But the band have not yet released details of how they will mark their return.
