Girls Aloud star died aged 39 after suffering from advanced breast cancer
Sarah Harding, the singer of Girls Aloud, died of breast cancer on Sunday morning, according to her mother. Harding said that she had been diagnosed with the disease, which had progressed to other portions of her body, in August 2020.
Marie shared the news on Instagram, calling her “beautiful” daughter “a bright, shining star.”
Harding claimed earlier this year that doctors told her she wouldn’t live to see another Christmas.
“It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away.” her mother posted with a black and white photo of Harding.
“In December, my doctor warned me that the upcoming Christmas would probably be my last,” Harding wrote in an excerpt from her memoir Hear Me Out published in the New York Times earlier this year.
She expressed her desire for “comfort” and to be “pain-free,” rather than an exact prognosis. “I’m trying to live and cherish every second of my life, however long it may be,” she added.
Girls Aloud, who formed in 2002, were the first girl group to debut at number one and the first band to have a Christmas chart-topper with their debut single. Over the course of a decade, the group achieved four UK number ones and 21 Top 10 songs, including a Brit Award for best single in 2009 for The Promise.
Harding rose to prominence in 2002 as a participant on ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals, a talent competition that sought to find a new girl and boy band. She made it to the final and was chosen to join Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh, and Cheryl Cole in the group Girls Aloud (then Tweedy).
