Sarah Harding’s devastated family and friends have paid tribute to her today after the tragic news of her death, following her battle with breast cancer.
Sarah’s mother Marie, took to Instagram on Sunday to confirm the sad news, penning a heartfelt tribute in memory of her 39-year-old daughter.
The post said, “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.”
As the news broke that Sarah had passed away, many of her celebrity friends have posted messages of condolence in memory of the star.
Alan Carr commented under the beautiful black and white picture of Sarah, saying, “Such awful news. Heartbreaking,” while Fearne Cotton said, “Oh my gosh I'm so sorry to hear this. I'm sending your family so much love and strength. She was always kind and so much fun to be around. I'm very sorry for your loss. Prayers and love to you.”
Ant and Dec posted on Twitter, saying, “Such sad news. Rest in peace Sarah.” Geri Horner said, “Rest in peace, Sarah Harding. You’ll be remembered for the light and joy you brought to the world.”
Sarah announced last August she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body. She told The Times that due to the pandemic, she had put off going to the doctor when she first started having symptoms.
In March this year, Sarah released a memoir Hear Me Out, where she revealed that she was "trying to live and enjoy every second of my life, however long it might be". In the same month she also landed her first-ever solo number one single with Wear It Like A Crown, a previously unheard song she recorded ten years ago.
All profits from the single raised from the single went towards the Christie NHS Foundation Trust, where Sarah received treatment.
