It's been over three years since they last performed together as a group.

And on Friday night, all five members of Girls Aloud reunited to sing their new tracks Something New and Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me on Children In Need.

Wearing the same orange off-the-shoulder tulip dresses from the Something New video, the girl group strutted about on stage with a troupe of hunky male dancers in suits.

They then changed into slinky pink and gold floor-length gowns for the ballad Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me, which they debuted on radio earlier this week.
