In sad news, Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has died at 39 after a hard-fought battle with breast cancer.
Full story below…
The singer’s mother shared that her daughter had passed in an emotional post on social media:
“It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away. Many of you will know of Sarah’s battle with cancer and that she fought so strongly from her diagnosis until her last day. 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 know she won’t want to be remembered for her fight against this terrible disease – she was a bright shining star and I hope that’s how she can be remembered instead.

Harding revealed news of her diagnosis last August and wrote about her experience (and life more broadly) in a much-praised memoir.
Our sincere thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones.
