Girls Aloud will play a second night in Belfast next May after their first reunion gig sold out.

Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl are set to take to the stage of the SSE Arena on Monday, May 20 – and will now perform again on Tuesday May 21 in response to the demand for tickets.

It comes as part of a tour to mark 21 years since the members were voted the winners of Popstars: The Rivals and went on to form Girls Aloud.

When news of the tour was announced, Nadine said: "Girls Aloud are a band that made such a huge impact on people's lives. We grew up with the band, but so did so many other people.

"So for us not to do something again feels like such a shame and a waste. We want to have that moment with fans where we can all enjoy it together."
