Love them or hate them Girls Aloud have been one of the UK Reality TV phenomenons of the last decade with three UK No 1's, four platinum albums and a double platinum album.
Like most UK artistes real success means making it big in the US of A. Ok group member Nadine Coyle's is involved with a chain of successful Irish Pubs around Los Angeles and the love of her live is NFL cornerback Jason Bell, good going girl, but that's not the sort of success we are talking about.
Cherly Cole had a top 4 UK hit Hearbreaker with Black Eyed Peas frontman will.I.am, closer but still not there although it looks like Cheryl isn't resting on her oars.
On the back of her high profile as a judge on the ITV reality show X-Factor Cheryl is looking to make a determined push into the US Market. She was reported as being seen having 'talks' with US TV executives in London at a Knightsbridge restaurant.
A US career plus her X-Factor commitments will certainly put a big question mark over her Girls Aloud future and maybe the future of the group. We are going to have to watch this space.
