    Good Morning Britain co-host Ed Balls has revealed he has a “bone to pick” with one one the Girls Aloud bandmates.

    The ITV show returned for another instalment on Wednesday (November 8) with Susanna Reid and Ed back at the helm. And one of the hot topics were the rumours that iconic band Girls Aloud are making an epic comeback.

    It's said the girl group – comprised of members Cheryl, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle met up in London recently to make a new music video in what has been "one of the best kept secrets in pop". It comes two years after bandmate Sarah Harding died at the age of 39 from cancer.

    But things took an awkward turn on GMB on Wednesday (Novemeber 8) when Susanna and Ed were discussing rumours of the Girls Aloud reunion. Apparently, Ed was not too impressed with one of the bandmates when he met her.

    “Ed Balls has a bone to pick one of the bandmates don’t you,” Susanna said. He replied straight away: “I do, I do.”

    Ed explained: “I was on Sport Relief Bake Off and Kimberly Walsh pipped me to the post and won it despite my brilliant ski jump cake.” He added: “Because she did a cake of Cheryl Cole on Kilimanjaro catching malaria for Comic Relief and pulled at every heartstring, what can I say the judges were weak.”

    Rumours of a Girls Aloud reunion started circulating this week. A source told The Sun: "This has been one of the best kept secrets in pop, but it’s actually happening now.

    'The girls really came back together as friends to rally around when Sarah died, and it repaired some of the old rifts and put things into perspective. Suddenly the reunion which had seemed totally impossible for so long just felt a totally natural thing to do — in Sarah’s honour.”

    The stars are also said to have plans for more new music – and even a tour. The insider went on: "It’s going to be huge — and they’re all very excited to be back working together, even if there is a bittersweet element to it."

    The group got together in 2002 after they all won their positions in Girls Aloud on TV show Popstars: The Rivals. They went on to have hits like Sound Of The Underground, Jump and No Good Advice and have also enjoyed solo success.

    In 2020, Sarah confirmed that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and that it had spread. She passed away in September 2021 and her bandmates told of their heartache as they paid tribute.
