The Sun hit us with the news today that Nadine will release a second album, yay!
We have already seen a few articles stating this, but with this national newspaper now reporting about it, we can get even more excited about it.
Sources have suggested the record could feature a Girls Aloud reunion track after Nadine began working with Brian Higgins—the mastermind producer behind the band—on new material.
A source told The Sun’s Bizarre column: “Nadine has spent the last few years soul-searching and finally feels ready to have another crack at her solo career. She has been working with Brian and can’t wait to show people her material. There has even been talk of a Girls Aloud track on the album.”
Watch this space for more news, hopefully we get to hear a track soon!
Nadine Coyle first hit our screens as a young hopeful on the television talent show Popstars: The Rivals, where she won a place in Girls Aloud – the multi-platinum, multi-award-winning girl group with hits including Sound of the Underground and Something Kinda Oooh.
This year sees Nadine celebrate her 15th anniversary in the industry. She is currently in the studio with new music due to be released later this year. Nadine is also marking 2017 with an impassioned commitment as our new Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador. We stole the Derry-born beauty away for a quick chat during a fabulous photoshoot to promote the annual charity competition.
How long have you worn glasses?About a year. I started getting headaches while I was driving, and both my mum and my partner Jason (former American footballer and father to their daughter Anaiya, three) said that I should have my eyes tested.
How have you adapted to wearing glasses?I love it. I have always loved wearing sunglasses. so it feels very natural.
How do glasses fit with your lifestyle?Really easily. I like to have neutral tone glasses that can go with anything. Now when I leave the house, it’s keys, phone, purse, lip balm and glasses!
How would you describe your style?My style is classic but depending on what I am up to, I will add a touch of glamour for a night out. When I go through my wardrobe, I can see how much my style has changed and evolved over the years. I am now more aware of things that suit me rather than falling for the hottest new trend.
What are your top style tips?Wear what you feel comfortable in and what brings out your personal style. That way you will feel more confident.
How important is the charity element for you?It is so important! Kidscape is a fantastic charity and the fact that it receives £1 for each entry is just tremendous. Kidscape works tirelessly to help prevent bullying and I believe that all children should be able to grow up without fearing bullies or abuse.
How do you feel about being this year’s Specsavers Spectacle Wearer of the Year ambassador?It’s such an honour, I am so proud! I attended last year’s event and received an award for Best Newcomer. It’s a great feel-good campaign and the awards evening is a spec-tacular, fun event!
Nadine Coyle shows off her ‘specs’ appeal – as she launches the Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2017.
The former Girls Aloud star, 31, is urging glasses wearers to enter a competition to find the public Spectacle Wearer of the Year run by the high street opticians. Finalists will attend a star-studded awards ceremony in London, with one overall victor claiming the coveted title and £10,000.
Nadine said: “I realised I needed glasses to drive and read last year, and I’ve been building up my specs wardrobe ever since. I’ve been experimenting with some unique new optical styles, such as cat’s eyes and transparent frames. I can’t believe what I’ve been missing for all these years!
“I was thrilled to win the newcomer award last year, so it’s a real honour to launch the search to find the 2017 Spectacle Wearer of the Year.”
The competition has raised more than £400,000 for anti-bullying charity Kidscape over the past six years.
The competition has five age categories – 16-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-59 and over 60s – plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public.
£1 will be donated to Kidscape for each entry made.
