Nicola Roberts is an English singer and song writer who came to limelight after participating in the ITV realty talent show, Popstars: The Rivals, which created the girl pop group Girls Aloud. As part of the Girls Aloud group, Nicola Roberts saw immense success. The group released 5 albums and had 20 singles that consecutively grabbed a spot in UK Top Ten Singles chart.

Along with it, she appeared in a BBC documentary Nicola Roberts: The Truth About Tanning and advocated (together with British MP Julia Morgan) the ban of tanning beds for under 18s. Apart from her own album, she also wrote lyrics for Little Mix’s album as well as Cheryl Ann Tweedy’s album and singles. In 2020, she emerged as the winner of ITV’s reality show, The Masked Singer UK, and was cast in an important role in West End’s musical comedy, City of Angels.
