Girls Aloud have returned to the recording studio with producers Xenomania to record new material for their 10th anniversary.

The girl band whose last album was released in 2008 have returned to the studio with Xenomania, who wrote the majority of their chart-topping hits including The Promise and Something Kinda Ooooh.

In a recent tweet the producers wrote: ''Prepping to go in the studio with @NadineCoyleNow for new Girls Aloud sessions (sic).

''New GA sessions with @NicolaRoberts, @KimberelyJWalsh @SarahNicHarding in the studio over the last week (sic).''

Nadine Coyle then confirmed the reunion by tweeting: ''Tody in stufio again making magic with the original dream team Brian Higgins and Xenomania. Be prepared to be amazed (sic).''

It is reported that the material will be released in November, followed by an anniversary tour.
