Sarah Harding has returned to social media to send a message to fans.

The Girls Aloud star announced in August 2020 that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer that had spread to other parts of her body.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: "Hi everyone! I hope you are keeping safe and as well as possible with everything that's going on.

"I know I'm not really that present on here which I promise I'll try to get a bit better at, as honestly it means the world to me when I come on and see all your well wishes.

"Thank you for the love and support, on bad days it helps me so much."

The Celebrity Big Brother winner added how she had spent Christmas, adding: "Mum, the dogs and I had a really lovely but quiet Christmas together, which was different to my usual, but seemed a fitting way to end such a strange year.

"And since then, in between treatments and hospital visits I've managed to finish my book! I can't believe I've actually gone and done it and it's now at the printers! I'm so excited for it to come out."

She continued: "I can't rewrite history; all I can do is be honest and wear my heart on my sleeve.

"It's really the only way I know. I want to show people the real me. Or perhaps remind them. Because, somewhere - amongst the nightclubs, the frocks and hairdos, the big chart hits and the glamour of being a popstar – the other Sarah Harding got utterly lost.

"She's the one who's been forgotten. And all I want is for you to hear her out.

"I called the book Hear Me Out because it's the title of the song I wrote on the second Girls Aloud album and I've always really loved it. The lyrics have always meant a lot to me.

"It's been lovely revisiting our songs, looking back over photos and writing down memories from my last 39 years. I really hope you might enjoy reading about them too."

Sarah Harding's book Hear Me Out will be released on March 18 and is available to pre-order now.
