Gordon has something of a scoop this morning - if it's true - pointing out that Nadine Coyle's attempts to spin her a solo career has failed:
Nadine was even turned down by Girl's Aloud's OWN record company, Polydor, and other labels in the same Universal business group.
Polydor had the first rights to sign any of the five ladies if they wanted to go solo.
A source said: "Nadine had meetings but none of the Universal labels wanted to take her on. She's tried to get a deal elsewhere but with no luck."
This seems a little odd; Nadine being a better singer than Cheryl Cole. Perhaps she's less keen on jumping through hoops? Or maybe she had her own ideas about what she wanted to do, which run contrary to the record company model (= push-up bra, short skirt; whack some shop-bought tune through a computer; promote on Loose Women and GM:TV. Repeat until fade.)
Oh, let's hope she's being difficult. But surely she must have the money to pay for a studio and self-release some stuff?
Still, Gordon seems pretty clear that failing to land a record deal is the end of the dream.
Up to a point, though, as elsewhere it's not even a setback:
Boomtown Brat PIXIE GELDOF is yet to sign her record deal but will be releasing a single soon.
