Girls Aloud forced to cancel Christmas reunion with Sarah Harding

Sarah Harding was hoping to reunite with her Girls Aloud bandmates this Christmas but their festive reunion has been scrapped due to the tightened coronavirus restrictions. 

The Sound of the Underground hitmakers have been supporting Sarah, 39, from afar in recent months as the singer battles breast cancer which has advanced to other areas of her body. 

Kimberley Walsh, who has just announced she’s pregnant with her third child, revealed their Christmas plans to OK! Magazine and said: ‘We were hoping we were all going to get together before Christmas with Sarah but with restrictions it’s been so tricky. If I don’t get to see them before then, I will call them.’ 

Opening up about Sarah’s health battle, Kimberley said she’s ‘doing well’, adding: ‘It’s such a tough time for her and I’m so proud of her. 

‘It’s a strange feeling, because you feel proud that someone’s taken it on and is dealing with everything she’s dealing with.’ 

In recent weeks, Kimberley, 39, Cheryl, 37, Nicola Roberts, 35, and Nadine Coyle, 35, have been sending Sarah stories and throwback photos for the singer to include in her upcoming autobiography which she recently announced. 

‘She knows we’re all there, ready to help in any way we can,’ Kimberley said. 

The Promise singer continued: ‘She’s really appreciated having that. Unfortunately, it’s these things that bring you closer together… but we always were [close] anyway. When you share the experiences we have and that time as a group, it’s a sisterhood. 

‘If somebody needs the rest of us, we’re all going to be there and that’s it. End of story.’ 

Sarah announced her devastating health news in August and has been undergoing chemotherapy to fight the disease. 

Announcing her autobiography Hear Me Out, Sarah told fans earlier this month: ‘I can’t deny that things are tough right now but I’m fighting as hard as I possibly can and being as brave as I know how.

‘In September the lovely people at Ebury Publishing asked me if I’d be interested in writing a book about my life story. It came at such a good time as it’s given me something fun & positive to focus on while I’ve been stuck at home in between trips to the hospital for treatment. 

‘I’ve nearly finished it now and this week Mum and I have been looking through old photos, choosing which ones to include. It’ll be out after Christmas and I’m really proud of it. I hope you’ll like it.’
