The singers weren't always as cool as they are now

Nicola Roberts and Cheryl Cole were very unworldly before they joined Girls Aloud 10 years ago.

They got together after winning Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and found they had a lot to learn.

Nicola, 26, and Cheryl, 28, definitely weren’t up with the latest technology.

‘A car came to pick me up with a sat nav,’ recalls Nicola.

‘I got in the car and said to the driver: “You what? You’re trying to tell me that computer can tell us how to get there? I do-not-believe it.”

‘Put it this way. [Cheryl] didn’t know what a sat nav was either.’
