Nadine Coyle has revealed she didn’t tell her current boyfriend that she’s in Britain’s top girl group when they started dating.

Nadine began dating American footballer Jason Bell last September but didn’t tell the New York Giants star what she did for a living until they were spotted by the paparazzi.

The Girls Aloud star explained recently: “I told him I was a singer, but that was all.

“He took me to this restaurant in Los Angeles and as we walked up to the door, all these photographers were going, ‘Nadine, Nadine!’

“I told him, ‘Well, I’m in this group and the thing is, we’ve been quite successful…’”

Girls Aloud are currently in the middle of their sold-out Out of Control arena tour of the UK.
