JADE Thirlwall is set to undergoing an image revamp ahead of launching her solo music career.
The X Factor hopeful turned household name will follow in the footsteps of Cheryl and ditch her surname when she makes her solo debut later this year.
A music insider teased: “Jade is going all out to make sure her solo career takes off.
“After talks with bosses she’s decided a mini-revamp is the way to go and will be dropping her surname to simply be known as ‘Jade’ moving forward.
“It worked for Cheryl so they see no reason why it wouldn’t work for Jade.
“There are no plans set in stone yet but a summer launch for her career is looking more than likely.
“It goes without saying she’s incredibly loyal to the girls but they are all looking to the future and life after the group and working on their own projects now.”
After Girls Aloud went their separate ways in 2009, Chezza returned just months later with chart-topping single Fight For This Love before ditching her surname altogether by 2012.
Next week Jade will join band mates Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock as they kick off their final tour in Belfast.
The trek will see the girls play arena shows up and down the UK before taking their final bow at at London’s O2 Arena on May 14.
