Profile Bio Text
Nadine Elizabeth Louise Coyle (born 15 June 1985 in Derry, Northern Ireland) is an Irish singer for the pop group Girls Aloud. She was born to Lillian and Niall Coyle, with two sisters, Charmaine and Rachael.
Before finding fame, Coyle recorded a demo CD which was distributed to Louis Walsh (now ex co-manager of Girls Aloud) and The Late Late Show. This songs included "Fields Of Gold", "Somewhere Over The Rainbow", "Love Is" and "Summertime". The demo CD is very rare as only a few copies were made (Coyle gave most to her friends and family); one found its way onto eBay and earned a high price.
Coyle first found fame in 2001 when, while attending Thornhill College, Derry, she entered the Irish version of the talent show Popstars. As one of the winners of the show, Coyle was selected to become a member of the group Six. Shortly after the group was formed, the bandmates moved into a house together and all were interviewed on camera.
Coyle gave a string of information about herself but then stopped suddenly and whispered "What date of birth did I give...?" She initially maintained that she had simply made a mistake when stating her birthday, but later broke down off camera and admitted that she had lied about her age and was in fact only 15 years old. As the minimum age stipulated by the producers was 18, she had to be dropped from the group and returned to her secondary grammar school, Thornhill College. Six`s first single, "Whole Lot Of Loving", went on to become the fastest-selling single in Irish history. It was later beaten by Leona Lewis`s single Bleeding Love in 2007.
In 2002 Coyle returned to enter the UK talent show Popstars: The Rivals at the invitation of manager, Louis Walsh. As she got through the first few rounds, her first fansite opened. She polled the third-highest number of votes in the final and was chosen to join the group Girls Aloud. During the series, she had been a hot favourite to make the group. When asked to name a highlight from the show, presenter Davina McCall simply answered "Nadine".
The group`s first single "Sound of the Underground" was released in December 2002 and went to number one in the UK and Ireland.
With Girls Aloud she has scored 19 top 10 singles (four of which have been #1s) and five platinum albums (including a #1). Nadine is often seen as "the voice" of the band and has the most vocal experience in the group, having taken part in and won two series of Popstars, the only person in the world to do so. Nadine has showed off her vocal talent several times whilst on UK tours with her band mates.
Louis Walsh has promised to make Nadine a solo star if and when Girls Aloud go their separate ways. However, she has constantly denied reports she will leave the girl group to become a solo artist.
Nadine has also co-written a few songs whilst in the group, including:
* "100 Different Ways" (What Will the Neighbours Say?)
* "Why Do It" (B-side to I Think We`re Alone Now)
* "Sexy! No, No, No..."
Coyle filmed a cameo appearance in Natasha Bedingfield`s video for "I Wanna Have Your Babies" in Los Angeles.
In 2007, Coyle and the other members of Girls Aloud made a cameo appearance as schoolgirls in the film St. Trinian`s. The theme song of the official movie soundtrack that she recorded with her bandmates reached number 51 in the UK charts. Coyle also appeared on Keith Barry`s show The Great Escape which aired on ITV on 29 December 2007.
She was reportedly approached by Gillette to advertise their female range of razors.
Coyle currently lives in Los Angeles, where her family recently moved to open a string of authentic Irish Pubs. Previous to this, her parents had been living for a time a short distance west from Derry in Inishowen in north County Donegal in Ireland. She and her family are currently leasing a mansion in Huntington Beach, California. She has been dating New York Giants football player Jason Bell since September 2008.
In 2004 Coyle split with her footballer boyfriend Neil McCafferty because of their busy schedules. The pair had met in school and had been dating since 2000, but would remain friends.
Coyle met American actor Jesse Metcalfe in February 2006, and started dating. On 21 April 2007 Metcalfe`s publicist confirmed the couple had split and denied Metcalfe had cheated on Coyle after his stint in rehab, which Coyle later confirmed on Saturday Night With Miriam, saying they had already split before pictures were taken of Metcalfe with another woman.
Despite reports to the contrary, Coyle told The Sun that she and Metcalfe had not re-established their relationship, and only met up with Metcalfe as friends. The couple has been split for some time, with Coyle`s father saying "she did well to get shot of him."
