| GIRLS ALOUD star NADINE COYLE made time for me during a busy day. |
She's been grafting in the studio with WILLIAM ORBIT, the producer who masterminded MADONNA's Ray Of Light album.
She is also working with GUY CHAMBERS and dance veteran TIESTO among others and now has 50 songs to choose from for her first solo album, with a single due this summer.
She said: "I'm like Lady Muck in the studio. I love telling all the musicians what to do."
She has a business brain too - after investing $1million in an LA restaurant she's been offered double to sell it.
Nadine also recently made her first appearance without the rest of Girls Aloud, performing with BOYZONE at their tribute to STEPHEN GATELY - due on ITV1 on March 21.
