Kimberley Walsh admits she is saddened by the lack of new bands that are currently disrupting the music industry for young people to find.
The singer and presenter, 40, appeared as part of Girls Aloud in 2002 and went on to become one of the UK’s biggest all-time girl bands.
However, The Sound of The Underground singers split almost a decade ago, and following Little Mix’s decision to go their separate ways, Kimberley believes the chart is severely lacking in new groups.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “I think, you know, pop bands in general aren’t really there anymore, which makes me a little sad when I think about young people growing up.
“I know how it is for us. We adore and crave bands and it’s always fun to watch bands, but I don’t really feel like this current generation really has get that.”
She went on to say that she feels most of the groups around today are people who have reunited after a period of time apart, calling it “a trend” and saying that boy bands and female “current is not interesting”.
The mother-of-three has revealed she knows it’s going to “get it all right” eventually, and jokes that the next big band could include her sons and grandson – and thinks she will succeed as their manager.
“There are seven boys in our family,” she revealed. “My dad and my sister have four boys, and maybe they’ll form their own boy band and come back strong.”
She is sure to disappoint Girls Aloud fans as well as she confirmed that there are currently no plans for her to reunite on stage with her former colleagues following Sarah’s tragic death. Harding last year.
Kimberley added: “There won’t be any reunions of any kind. I mean, obviously, because of the loss of Sarah, that’s not nearly on anyone’s radar right now.
“We tried to focus instead on doing something positive together for her, which was a really nice focus for us.”
Kimberley and former bandmates Cheryl, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts will be entering the 5k Race for Life next month to raise funds for cancer research, and also have a number of other fundraising ideas “boiling.” .
Kimberley was speaking after teaming up with home improvement retailer Wickes to launch the Wickes Community Program Competition, offering the community organization the chance to win £10,000 to improve their space.
