SARAH Harding burst onto the scene as one fifth of the chart-topping pop group Girls Aloud.
She recently shot back into the spotlight after winning Celebrity Big Brother – but she has sadly split from boyfriend Chad Johnson. Here’s Sarah’s story…
Sarah Harding is a singer and actor who found fame in Girls Aloud after auditioning for Pop Stars: The Rivals.
The group – which also features Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh – split in 2013, just a year after they reunited for their ten year anniversary.
Sarah is 35 years old and was born on November 17, 1981 in Ascot, Berkshire.
As well as being known for her life on stage, Sarah has hit headlines on numerous occasions thanks to her troubled personal life.
In 2011 the star entered a rehab facility for depression, alcohol addiction and prescription drug abuse.
She was previously engaged to DJ Tom Crane but is currently believed to be single.
Previous boyfriends include music producer Mark Foster, Theo Van Dries and Danny Dyer – who The Sun recently revealed she had a six-week affair with.
This all happened despite Sarah having a boyfriend outside the house when she first entered the show.
The Sun revealed him to be Aaron Lacey – a plasterer from High Wycombe.
Sarah has long been rumoured to have fallen out with Cheryl, and took a swipe at her former bandmate during CBB, after accusing her of “meticulously” planning her secret pregnancy.
Celebrity Big Brother housemate Amelia kicked off the chat by saying of Cheryl: “She’s quite private, isn’t she?”
Sarah replied: “She tries to be.
“She just knows how to work it when she wants to.
“When she wants to be seen she is, and when she doesn’t, she makes sure she isn’t.
“Like with the whole baby thing, she just plans things meticulously.”
Amelia responded: “Clever lady.”
Sarah said: “She’s savvy, I’d give her that.”
The Sun on Sunday had previously revealed in July how Cheryl had unfollowed Sarah on Twitter, sparking rumours of a feud.
CBB’s tearful champion Sarah left the house to a mixed reaction from the crowd, greeted by Emma.
But it has been a smooth transition from life inside the house for the couple as Sarah was accused of being drunk after interrupting an Instagram Live broadcast that Chad had been recording.
Sarah had a six-week affair with Danny Dyer in 2012 when they met on the set of Run For Your Wife in which Danny played a cabbie secretly juggling two wives.
A friend exclusively told The Sun: “He had told her he was living with his dad in Canning Town and that he was single.
“But eventually his mask slipped. She felt hurt and incredibly betrayed by him. They’ve seen each other a few times since and it’s been very awkward.”
Sarah’s acting career began when she had a cameo in St Trinian’s in 2007.
The following year she starred in low budget thriller Bad Day before returning to the St Trinian’s franchise playing a student despite her age.
In between that she took on a role in BBC television film Freefall.
In 2015 Sarah appeared in Coronation Street for a few episodes playing Joni – the wife of returning character Robert Preston.
Her acting was panned by both critics and fans and she was not invited back by producers.
Sarah has also taken part in numerous TV shows, including Tumble, Celebrity Masterchef, Dating in the Dark and Celebrity Juice.
After meeting in the Celebrity Big Brother house, Chad and Sarah started a public and volatile relationship.
Chad told the Diary Room at the time: ”I like hanging out with Sarah. We flirt. I just want to keep hanging out with her, and see what happens.”
The next day, Sarah was denying to fellow housemates that they’d had sex.
She told Sandi Bogle: ”No I’m not going to do anything like that in the house, that was just a different, I don’t know, I’ve just got to maintain some decorum while I’m in the house and respect other people.”
However, despite initial doubts, the pair have continued to date outside of the house – with Sarah even putting her house up for sale amid rumours she could be moving to LA to be with him.
But on November 7, 2017 The Sun exclusively reported how the couple split after just three months together.
The long distance in their romance is mainly blamed, but Chad’s “flirting” with other women was also reportedly a cause for their break up.
Sarah then went on to confirm the breakup for these reasons.
