Girls set for No.1 at Xmas.
POP Rivals winners Girls Aloud were on course today for the Christmas No.1 slot after notching up around 250,000 single sales.
They left their boy band rivals One True Voice's single Sacred Trust trailing behind with 175,000 sales.
The girls, featuring Nadine Coyle from Derry, have led the way with their single Sounds Of The Underground, but the final result won't be known until tonight's ITV1 special Pop Stars: The Rivals show.
The show also features the Cheeky Girls, who despite not making it into the final line-up in the Pop Stars band got their own record deal and have the No.3 chart position.
All week Girls Aloud and One True Voice have been trading insults.
The strongest accusation was that the girls barely featured on the single and it is in fact the voices of another girl band Orchid.
The girls hit back by dubbing the boys' Bee Gees cover "cheesy" and the boys responded by calling the girls "tarts".
