GMB host Ed Balls reveals bizarre ‘feud’ with Girls Aloud star amid band reunion

Ed Balls has hinted at a bizarre 'feud' with singer Kimberley Walsh, after competing against her on The Great Sport Relief Bake Off back in 2016.

The Good Morning Britain host, 56, discussed Girls Aloud's rumoured reunion on the ITV breakfast show on Wednesday with co-host Susanna Reid, 52, when his appearance on the Bake Off charity special came up.

Ed competed on the show against Kimberley, 41, Victoria Coren Mitchell and Chris Kamara, with Kimberley emerging as the winner of the episode – much to keen baker Ed's disappointment.

He joked that the singer had "pipped me to the post" on GMB, as he discussed battling it out in the final.

Ed made a majestic ski jump cake in a bid to take home the win, but Kimberley triumphed with her heartfelt bake, which showed her and bandmate Cheryl climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.

Cheryl and Kimberley climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in 2009 for Sport Relief, alongside fellow celebs including Alesha Dixon, Fearne Cotton and Denise Van Outen.

Jokingly hinting a feud between himself and Kimberley, Ed said: "She deserved to win, but she played it very well. What can I say?"

His comments come after it was reported that Girls Aloud are planning a massive comeback with new music and a tour, following a 'secret reunion'.

The iconic girl group, made up of Cheryl, Kimberley, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle, have apparently met in London to film a new music video. This comes two years after the tragic loss of bandmate Sarah Harding to cancer.

The girls have recorded their first track in 11 years since their 2012 song Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me. The video is said to feature the stars dressed as superheroes.

A source told The Sun: "This has been one of the best kept secrets in pop, but it's actually happening now. The girls really came back together as friends to rally around when Sarah died, and it repaired some of the old rifts and put things into perspective."

The source added: "Suddenly the reunion which had seemed totally impossible for so long just felt a totally natural thing to do – in Sarah's honour.

"It's going to be huge – and they're all very excited to be back working together, even if there is a bittersweet element to it. Of course, whatever they do, there will always be nods to Sarah's contribution to the group, too."
