The girls revealed that they can't wait to get back on stage for the tour which kicks of in February.

Kimberley Walsh said: "Touring is one of the things we all enjoy the most."

Cheryl Cole agreed, saying: "Touring is the best thing we do full stop."

We were also surprised to hear that Girls Aloud began recording new material in the spring, but managed to keep it all under wraps.

Cheryl said that managing to keep the recording a secret was a big achievement for them.

But it was emotional to talk about the fact that we are ten years down the line. We had a chat in a hotel over tea - we were very cloak and dagger for a while."

And what's more, the girls held their reunion in the very same hotel that they stayed in on the night that Girls Aloud were first formed. Bet that was a blast from the past for them!

Girls Aloud finished the press conference by revealing that they were unsure what'll happen once the tour is over.

Nadine Coyle said: "Coming back together and being back int the studio and having all our voices on a track together is just so amazing. We will just have to wait and see how the fans react and how everything goes."

There's still hope, then. Hooray.

We're now off to have a little lie down.
