Kimberley Walsh has revealed that she and her former Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding have been speaking ‘a lot’ after Sarah found out her breast cancer had spread. 

Sarah, 38, revealed last week that the cancer has ‘spread to other parts of her body’, and Kimberley says it’s been ‘really tough’ hearing the news. 

She told The Sun: ‘I am completely devastated, it’s been really, really tough, but speaking to her a lot helps and keeping that contact. 

‘She knows we’re there for her every step of the way. She’s a strong girl and I love her so much.’

Sarah is said to have spoken to Kimberley, Cheryl, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts before announcing to her fans that she had been battling cancer.

She had revealed to fans that she was undergoing chemotherapy on social media, sharing a photo of her in her hospital bed.

Alongside the snap, she wrote: ‘Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well during these uncertain times. 

‘I’ve not posted on here for so long, thank you to everyone who has reached out to check in on me, it really does mean a lot.

‘I feel now is the right time to share what’s been going on. There’s no easy way to say this and actually it doesn’t even feel real writing this, but here goes.

‘Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a couple of weeks ago I received the devastating news that the cancer has advanced to other parts of my body.’

She continued: ‘I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can. I understand this might be shocking to read on social media and that really isn’t my intention.

‘But last week it was mentioned online that I had been seen in hospital, so I feel now is the time to let people know what’s going on and this is the best way I can think of to do so. 

‘My amazing mum, family and close friends are helping me through this, and I want to say a thank you to the wonderful NHS doctors and nurses who have been and continue to be heroes.

‘I am doing my very best to keep positive and will keep you updated here with how I’m getting on. In the meantime I hope you’ll all understand and respect my request for privacy during this difficult time. Sending you all so much love….xx.’
