The end has come for Girls Aloud as the girl group announced they are going their separate ways on the last night of their 10-year-celebration tour.
"We have now come to the end of our incredible time together" said a tweet from the girls' official Twitter account shortly after they came off stage in Liverpool, followed by "Dear Alouders, we just wanted to say from the bottom of our hearts Thank you!!"

The girls, Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Kimberley Walsh reunited for the 12 date tour at the end of February following three years working on solo projects.
"This tour has been an amazing experience" the girls said "and the perfect chance to say thank you for being on this journey with us through a decade. It has far exceeded any of our dreams and we hope we are forever your inspiration and reminder that dreams really do glitter!! Your love and support will stay with us forever but we have now come to the end of our incredible time together. Love you lots."
Cheryl, Nicola, Kimberley, Nadine and Sarah had previously hinted at an imminent split after confessing they had no plans together after the end of the tour.
At a press conference to announce the Ten Tour last year Cheryl, 29, said "we haven't actually made any plans further than the tour" before adding that they would "wait and see how the fans react" before deciding what to do next.
Girls Aloud started their musical career back in 2002 when they were put together by the ITV show Popstars: The Rivals and claimed their first number one with Sound Of The Underground.
Looking back on their decade in the industry, Cheryl tweeted on Wednesday night: "To the people that haven't been able to make it, for what ever reason, we feel your support regardless and have done for 10 yrs.."
Nadine, 27, also added "I have seen you many of you at the tour work as hard as us! That is why I cried last night on stage & probably tonight again. Not sad, happy. Happy tears. I cannot thank you enough. I love seeing all your faces. Ok more tears. I love you all forever. Xxxxx NC"
