Coyle lights up US candle shop empire

Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle is set to open a chain of candle shops in the US.

The singer, 22, who currently resides in Los Angeles, already has a Mexican restaurant and a string of properties to her name, but now wants to expand the business into a chain of shops Stateside.

She says: "I'm so excited about it. LA's the perfect place for it too as people love to get pampered. I've already got my brother-in-law to create the decor. He's an artist and does amazing canvasses, so it will be a proper family business - and really personal.

"I've got my mum to run it while I'm away working with the band."

However, Coyle insists her business acumen won't ever come before her career with the chart-topping girl band: "There's no way I'm quitting the band. The candle shop and my businesses are something else I love to do. I'm having such a laugh with the band."
