Pete Waterman (remember him? He was the judge on Popstars: The Rivals) has admitted that he feels proud to have had some small part in the enormous success of hit UK girl group Girls Aloud.

Girls Aloud have been around for ten decades, making us feel incredibly old and them feel incredibly smug successful.

And it seems as if it's not just Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh, Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle who are busy celebrating their part in the decade-long anniversary of Girls Aloud - Pete Waterman is too!

We suppose he can take some credit; after all, the fivesome came to fame on show Popstars: The Rivals, which Pete judged.

He explained to the Daily Star that he is amazed the girls did so well, as he had no idea what he was doing with them at the time:

“It’s amazing how they’ve been worked. Brilliant. From a show that everyone tells me was a piece of garbage, we had No 1, No 2 and No 3 in the Christmas charts and one of the acts is still around 10 years later."

“But we didn’t know what we were doing.”

We bet Girls Aloud are still grateful to Pete Waterman (at least a little bit) for hand-picking them from the masses and forging one of the most successful UK girl groups ever...
