Kimberley Walsh wants to plan a joint engagement party for Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle.

The Girls Aloud singer was delighted when both her bandmates made plans to marry their boyfriends Tom Crane and Jason Bell and is hopeful the happy news can repair the rift between Nadine and the rest of the group, which also includes Nicola Roberts and Cheryl Cole.

She said: “Nadine’s not been back for a while so I think when she is next over we probably need to do a big celebration for her and Sarah’s engagements.

“Hopefully Cheryl and Nicola will be around too. It’s just tying everyone down at the same time. Lovely news like that always brings you closer together.”

Kimberley and the other members of Girls Aloud were bridesmaids when Cheryl married soccer star Ashley Cole in 2006 but insists she won’t be upset if her bandmates don’t ask her to fill the same role when they tie the knot.

She added: “With Cheryl, at that time, we were all living every minute of every day in each other’s pockets and it felt right for us to be there because we were so involved in the wedding planning. I wouldn’t be offended if I wasn’t asked by Sarah or Nadine.”
