Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding dies of breast cancer

September 6, 2021

Sarah Harding, singer with the English chart-topping band Girls Aloud, has died aged 39 following a battle with breast cancer. The singer’s mother Marie confirmed the news on her daughter’s official Instagram account on Sunday.
“It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away,” her mother wrote. “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.”
The model, actress and singer in the award-winning British-Irish pop girl group announced in August 2020 from the hospital that she had been diagnosed with the disease, which had spread to other parts of her body.
Harding got her big break in 2002 as a contestant on Popstars: The Rivals, a British talent show with the goal of building both a new girl band and boy band. She made it to the final and ultimately into the group which became Girls Aloud, producing several UK hits.
Along with several acting roles, Harding won Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.
