Girls Aloud are 'stronger than ever' as they wrap up their huge reunion tour on Sunday (June 30). Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts confirmed their comeback last year to complete fan hysteria.

They revealed they'd be hitting the road again with Girls Aloud The Show, 11 years after they last performed up and down the country for the adoring fans.

They have since dedicated the string of shows, which started in May and recently included a string of five sold-out shows at London's O2 Arena, to their late friend and bandmate Sarah, who was diagnosed with cancer and died in September 2021 aged 39.

The pop group, who won Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and formed Girls Aloud, going on to achieve four UK number one singles, honoured Sarah in the best way possible with a celebratory trip down memory lane thanks to a number of their most joyous hits, including Love Machine, Jump and fan-favourite Girl Overboard.

Clips of Sarah have also been filling the arenas' huge screens as the quartet included their beloved bandmate in tracks such as I'll Stand By You and the Brit Award-winning The Promise.

As Liverpool hosts the last show of the tour on Sunday evening, a body language expert has said Girls Aloud are 'stronger than ever'. Speaking on behalf of Betfair Slots, body language expert Darren Stanton also revealed that Cheryl ‘owns the room’ and ‘holds most dominance’ in the group while Nadine Coyle showed her 'sensitive side'.

After performing across the country, Darren believes the girls have ‘found their feet’ with their levels of confidence which has left them ‘feeling stronger than ever’. He added the group ‘don’t take life too seriously’, and have wanted to 'enjoy every second’ on stage.

"With Girls Aloud coming back together this year and looking at their performances after having a long break from performing, it’s clear they have found their feet with their levels of confidence," he said. "They’ve grown a lot since they first started but we’ve seen a lot more humour and confidence come through.

"They’re feeling stronger than ever when we look at their in-sync movements and expressions of enjoyment on stage. Their interactions with each other are a lot more authentic and open, meaning they’re all in better places with each other connection-wise. This is shown through more eye contact and championing each other on stage. For example, we saw Nadine and Cheryl taking the lead by being tactile with each other, as well as initiating hugs and cheering each other on."

"When we look at how the girls have changed over the years of being in Girls Aloud, they’re a group of girls who like to have fun, come together and perform. They don’t take life too seriously and want to enjoy every second. We saw Cheryl experience a wardrobe malfunction earlier on in the tour, which they were soon laughing about seconds later. It just shows how they’re not stressing about every single detail, it’s all very natural from each of them."

Singling out Cheryl, who turns 42 as the tour finishes, Darren commented: "Cheryl has always had a huge stage presence and the ability to own the room. She feels comfortable putting herself out there and using her outgoing personality on and off stage. She holds a lot of dominance in the group.

"She actively displays a lot of confidence, she’s very vocal and wants to make her presence known. She’s also very good at championing the other girls and boosting their levels of inner strength and confidence. What’s good about Cheryl’s confidence is that she’s able to relax and have fun on stage. Whether it be her dancing, making jokes with the girls or even having banter and interacting with fans - nothing fazes her at all.

He later added of the group: "It’s clear they have a strong respect for one another, which continues to grow through everything they approach as a group. They work together as a team and want to build each other up. They are definitely stronger than ever as a group."
