Girls Aloud Singer Sarah Harding passed away

Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding has passed away from breast cancer aged 39

Harding, who rose to fame with the popular girl band Girls Aloud in the 00s, announced in August 2020 that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body. In a statement on Instagram, her mother confirmed she passed away on Sunday morning, adding "she was a bright shining star and I hope that's how she can be remembered instead".

Her mum said: “She slipped away peacefully this morning. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past year. It meant the world to Sarah and it gave her great strength and comfort to know she was loved.”

I met her (and the rest of the group) in 2008 backstage when they were guests on The X-Factor. I had been eliminated from the competition early on but I was still there for all the live shows to support my friend who went on to reach the semi-final. She was really nice. They all were, in fact. I can't say I'm a fan of their music at all but they are all super nice people. I was only 18 at the time and even though they weren't that much older than I was they kind of have me advice on things and told me not to give up. In truth, I didn't really need the pep talk but they didn't have to take time out of what they were doing to give it. So it was much appreciated. Sarah, especially, was particularly supportive.

I don't want to make out like we were great friends or anything like that. We didn't keep in touch for any significant period of time. A few texts and stuff for a few weeks. Nothing major. But still, it's sad to think that she's dead. Especially someone so young.
