This year marks a decade since they were put together by the ITV show Popstars: The Rivals and claimed their first number one with Sound Of The Underground.

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw introduced the group, made up of Cheryl Cole, Sarah Harding, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts, as "the defining UK girl group of the modern era."

Cheryl Coyle said she was delighted to be back together with the other girls, but they would "wait and see how the fans react" to their single before deciding what to do next. She said they had already achieved much more than they thought possible.

If you asked us 10 years ago we wouldn't have dreamt we'd be here today.
