11 moments Girls Aloud would probably like to forget

Oh dear. Oh dear. Oh. Dear.

GIRLS ALOUD ARE playing a show in Dublin tonight as part of their current tour.

There will be all their hits, some tears and plenty of impressive outfits.

Of course it wasn’t always hit singles and solo careers of varied success.

There are plenty of morto moments in the archives as the girls spent the last ten years twirling around on stage / on the red carpet.

We’ve rounded up some of the moments that we reckon Girls Aloud would rather forget.

1. This early peformance

Girls Aloud were regulars at London club night G-A-Y and one performance was particularly, shall we say, memorable.

They rocked this look

Kimberly kept things going in the centre

And made sure she had her moment to shine

2. Killer dance moves

Right from the start, the girls managed to execute choreography that looked graceful and fluid:

3. Puppy related encounters

One night on the red carpet Sarah got to hold a puppy

She seemed pretty happy about it

Even Kimberly wanted to hug the puppy

Not to be outdone Cheryl and Nadine were pictured with a dog at a different event.

Very stressful being in a girlband isn’t it?

4. Hanging out with Brian/Bryan McFadden

If there’s anything more glamorous than doing your makeup in front of Bryan McFadden than we don’t wanna know.

So much glamour

5. Another highbrow performance

For one of their many G-A-Y performances the girls used some sexy, bed-related props. Such as giant beds

The whole thing was very “racy” but we bet it’s comfortable wearing a fluffy robe onstage

6. Elegant tour costumes

At least when Girls Aloud undertook their first ever tour they kept all of their rig-outs demure and low-key

Demure. Low-key.

7. Barbie Girl(s)

You know you’re famous when Barbie comes calling. In 2005 Girls Aloud designed a range of Barbie dolls.

Here they are holding them and looking as chic as you can while holding a toy that looks like you

8. Cheryl’s photocall hell

Back when Cheryl and Ashley were all loved up they did this presumably tongue in cheek photoshoot.

Still, how morto would you be seein this back?

Mega morto that’s what.

9. Mr Men encounter

There was also the time that they met Mr Happy from Mr Men.

Because the celeb life is all about meeting the big names.

10. Girl party

Sarah and Nicola once attended the NME awards and had a very low-key evening.

You wouldn’t even  have known they were there

11: Sarah at the Brit Awards

Girls Aloud finally won a Brit Award in 2009 and looked lovely on the red carpet

Mind you, Sarah looked really inexplicably angry

While accepting their award, Sarah did her best “Go on ma’ son!” face
