Girls Aloud reportedly ban alcohol from tour

Girls Aloud have reportedly banned alcohol from their upcoming reunion tour.

Cheryl, Nadine, Kimberley and Nicola have taken the decision to ensure that bandmate Sarah Harding does not falter in her recovery from alcoholism, according to The Sun.

Harding received treatment for alcohol abuse and depression in 2011 after splitting from then fiancé Tom Crane, and is reportedly at a key stage in her recovery ahead of the group’s highly anticipated UK jaunt.

“The girls have decided to ban alcohol altogether in support of Sarah,” a source claimed. “She’s still dealing with her alcohol problem two years on, and they’ve decided to ban it out of respect to her.

“It’s only fair – they don’t want her falling off the wagon and going back to how she was after she split from Tom.

“Tour staff including dancers are included in the ban, so if anyone wants a drink after the show they will have to leave the arena area to do so as it’s completely banned in the dressing rooms,” they added.

The group’s reunion tour kicks off in Newcastle on 21 February, touring 19 dates across the UK, concluding in Liverpool on 20 March.
