The success of Cheryl Cole's blossoming solo career has clearly inspired her bandmates.
Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding is now following in the footsteps of the X Factor judge, and planning her own solo album.
And the pretty blonde has high hopes for her own career, already comparing herself to the likes of Lady Gaga.
"I'm so excited about going into the studio. I haven't completely settled on what kind of music I'm going to make yet, but I would love it to be something like Lady GaGa," she tells the Daily Mirror.
"She is the new Madonna as far as I'm concerned.
"I'm really looking forward to having the freedom to do my own thing. In the band we all have a say but we have to compromise," adds Sarah, pictured showcasing her new chic bob this week.
"Now I can do exactly what I want."
