Girls Aloud have teamed up with BBC Children In Need to launch the first ever POP Pudsey Collection, which has seen the girls create their own unique POP versions of the iconic Pudsey Bear.
Following their performance of charity single Something New on the Appeal show, GA once again wanted to do their bit to raise funds for children and young people across the UK.
Each member has designed their very own POP Pudsey and the collection of 28 inch Bears are not only completely unique, but also reflective of Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine, Nicola and Sarah’s distinctive personalities.
The girlband said: "We were thrilled to give Pudsey a Girls Aloud makeover to mark the charity's most successful year yet. All of us were all incredibly proud to be part of the 2012 Appeal and hope these Bears raise lots of money and of course find a lovely new home."
Cheryl Cole’s little soldier Pudsey salutes her loyal army of fans and followers using camouflage print teamed with black sequined shoulder pads. A military inspired cap completes Chezza’s unique creation.
Nadine’s Bear uses feminine tones of blush pink and cream and luxurious fabrics of velvet and satin. Coyle’s Pudsey is cosy and relaxed in a personalised kimono robe bearing her hand embroidered lace initials.
The Irish singer said of her creation: "My Pudsey is girlie and gorgeous and ready to chill out in a personalised satin kimono. Pudsey’s a very busy bear so it’s important he gets the chance to relax!”
Nicola’s love of fashion shines through in her unique design which sees Pudsey wearing a sweetheart necked bandeau dress teamed with polka dot flatforms. Her trademark red hair completes her fashionista Bear.
Roberts stated: "I’ve seen first hand the work that BBC Children in Need do and why the public’s money is so important. Recently I visited a fashion project supporting young women in Hackney.
"My Bear reflects my own sense of style and I think it’s the first time Pudsey has ever had hair! I hope people will bid on our collection and help Children in Need continue their great work.”
Kimberley’s glittery Bear reflects her time on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing, with her Pop Pudsey wearing the iconic red sequinned dress worn when the 2012 line up was announced.
She claimed: "My sparkly red Pudsey was inspired by the first dress I wore on Strictly which will always be very special to me. I wanted to give Pudsey a glamorous makeover before Christmas and hope the collection will go to a good home and raise tonnes of money for BBC Children in Need. "
Taking a walk on the wild side, Sarah’s Pudsey uses strong animal print and soft black leather inspired by the ‘Something New’ video and lyrics of this year’s official BBC Children in Need single.
Harding explained: "It’s been such fun giving Pudsey a new look and I will be sad to wave him goodbye as he is auctioned for BBC Children in Need. I took inspiration from the Something New video to give Pudsey an animal print makeover. I think he looks great.”
The Girls Aloud POP Pudsey Collection is being auctioned now on eBay.co.uk with the auction ending on 28 December 2012.
