NICOLA Roberts celebrated her 30th birthday with close pals Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Kimberley Walsh on Sunday.
But ex-band mates Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle who were notably absent from the evening.
Nicola held the momentous occasion at celebrity hot spot Hotel Chantelle, where she was joined by Kimberley’s fiancé Justin Scott and her younger sister Frankie.
Cheryl put on a glamorous show in a striped Balmain dress while the birthday girl bared her cleavage in a floor-length piece that exposed her slender thighs.
Nicola’s guests of honour paid homage to her flowing red hair by singing happy birthday to the star at midnight with a Little Mermaid cake.
The group had replaced Ariel’s face with a picture of Nicola, playing on her likeness to the Disney character.
Cheryl, Kimberley and Nicola took to the dancefloor after getting merry on a few cocktails.
The trio attended the Pride of Britain Awards together last week with Cheryl sharing a heartfelt message about her close pals with a picture of them on the red carpet.
She said: “Girly catch up at Pride of Britain last night. Was so nice for us all to have a bit of chaotic dress up session together again lol. And for such a great evening. @lilcola @kimberleywalshofficial love you.”
