Kimberley Walsh will be “gutted” if Girls Aloud don’t reunite next year.

The band – which consists of Kimberley, Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts and Sarah Harding – will celebrate their tenth year together in 2011, and the 30-year-old beauty admits she is hoping they will work together again after going on a break in 2009.

She said: “Would I be OK if the reunion didn’t happen? I could in terms of my career as I don’t think we have anything to prove, but I’d be gutted from a personal point of view as I love performing in the band, that’s why we’re doing something next year – we never intended to stop for good.”

Discussing her birthday wish for next year, Kimberley added: “The Girls Aloud reunion – I can’t wait! That’s all I have time for – one year at a time. I’m not quite ready to stay at home with my pinny on!”

However, Kimberley – who has been in a relationship with Justin Scott for eight years – does admit she has become more relaxed about her life recently.

She said: “Over the last year, I’ve become more relaxed and comfortable with myself. Everything’s settled now because I’ve got my home and my family with Justin, and we hope to get married and have children one day. It’s a nice feeling.”
