Girls Aloud are set to go up against Westlife in the UK singles chart, with the girls releasing their version of the Pointer Sisters’ 1984 hit ‘Jump’ while the veteran boy band releases ‘Mandy’ on 17 of November.
Louis Walsh, who manages both groups, says his money is on Westlife to acheive a higher poistion on the English charts.
“I only found out myself yesterday that they’re both releasing singles on the same day. But I think it will be Westlife who get to No 1 or something higher than Girls Aloud,” Louis said.
“The girls are competition winners, that’s all they are. Now they’ve got to serve their apprenticeship to prove themselves. They’ve got to mature.”
