Girls allowed: Sarah Harding, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts get VIP treatment at Horrid Henry premiere
While they all looked stunning on the red carpet, their beaming smiles couldn't hide the absence of a certain bandmate.
Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts showed their support for Kimberley Walsh by attending the premiere of her new film Horrid Henry - but their Geordie friend was a no-show.
After a sensational week of revelations from Ashley Cole's latest bedroom conquests, the former X Factor judge was in desperate need of cheering up.

But she chose to remain behind closed doors after finally telling her ex-husband, 'It's over'.
After a terrible week of gloomy rain, the trio brought out the sunshine at the BFI Southbank Centre.
Nicola, who is currently embarking on a solo career with debut song Beat Of My Drum, dressed for the weather in a delicate ankle-length gown with a daring cutaway neckline.
Sarah looked typically stylish in a curve-hugging mini dress, as she showed off an impressive tan from holidaying in Ibiza with fiancée Tom Crane.
As the girls dedicated time to signing autographs, they stole the show from the child stars of the film.
Kimberley was the most colourful, looking radiant in a red frock and lashings of lipstick to match.

But little Theo Stevenson, who has already starred on the silver screen alongside Vince Vaughn in Fred Claus, tried to regain control of the crowd by throwing a variety of comedy poses for fans.
The film, based on the books of the same name, follows Henry as he forms an unlikely friendship with Moody Margaret, the infuriating girl next door, and his irritating little brother Perfect Peter.
The star-studded cast boasts performances from Noel Fielding, Angelica Huston, Richard E Grant, Jo Brand and Mathew Horne - with Kimberley taking on the role of Henry's cousin Prissy Polly.
She follows in the footsteps of Sarah, who made her move into films with a role in St Trinian's.
