  Girls Aloud on track to beat the boys
Updated 11 December 2002, 13.22
Nadine from Girls Aloud
The Popstars girls are on course to win the all-important Christmas chart battle with the boys.

Girls Aloud and One True Voice are going head-to-head for the festive chart-topper this year - and the girls have the edge.

When the groups were first announced, pop experts predicted the boys would easily win, cos girl fans buy loads of records.

But now the tables are turning.

'This is war!'

The girls are up against One True Voice
The rival songs were put on cable TV channel, The Box, last week, and fans were asked to vote to see their fave.

A huge 61 per cent of viewers are voting for the Girls Aloud song, Sound of the Underground.

After You're Gone by One True Voice grabbed 21 per cent, and their double A side, Sacred Trust got 17 per cent.

Girls Aloud manager, Louis Walsh, who also looks after Westlife, said: "This is war and we're gonna win!"

Fighting talk!
