Kimberley Walsh has quashed rumours of a Girls Aloud reunion at a fundraising event in memory of Sarah Harding.
The singer and TV presenter said on BBC show Morning Live that Cheryl, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, and herself were "not ready to get back on stage yet".
Speculation that the girl band might get back together for a special appearance began after Nadine revealed they were planning an event to raise money in honour of Sarah who died last year aged 39 of breast cancer.
Kimberley, 40, told co-host Gethin Jones: "I feel like I need to clear this up a little bit. There won’t be a reunion as such, we’re not going to be getting back on stage.
"We still don’t feel ready to get back on stage without Sarah."
Kimberley previously ruled out a reunion for the Love Machine group in October last year.
She said: "It’s not really something we’re even thinking about obviously, with the situation as it is. No one is even in that headspace right now."
When asked about Sarah in an interview with OK! magazine earlier this month Nadine, 36, said: "She’s very much in the forefront of our minds.
"We want to raise money for a piece of medical equipment that helps diagnose cancer earlier so people can be treated.
"We definitely want to do something to help others."
Sarah passed away 13 months after she received her initial breast cancer diagnosis and Nadine opened up about the impact it had on the group.
The singer recalled: “When she became unwell, a lot of my energy became focused on her. There were suddenly so many things happening that were more important than anything else. It was a time to be around loved ones and support them. Her passing has just been so devastating."
Girls Aloud, who were put together on the 2002 ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals, have not performed together on stage since they celebrated their 10th anniversary in 2013.
