“She was real. What you saw is what you got. She was amazing, beautiful and talented.”

Sarah was catapulted into fame back in 2002 alongside Nadine Coyle, Cheryl, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts after Girls Aloud were voted winners of ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals.

Sharing her heartbreak, the Lucky Day songstress penned: “I’m absolutely devastated and I can’t accept that this day has come. My heart is aching and all day everything we went through together has raced around my mind.

“Especially this last year since her diagnosis, as hard as the year has been, our new memories are strong in my heart.

“There are so many things to say and at first, it felt too personal to put them here and then I remembered that there are so many other people grieving her too.”

She continued: “A part of me or us isn’t here anymore and it’s unthinkable and painful and utterly cruel.

“She would have loved your messages today, electric girl, you made us.”

The star added: “You gave it everything and still with a smile.

“A white butterfly flew past my window this morning before I knew, it must have been you.”

Breaking her silence and taking to her Instagram page, a heartbroken Nadine shared a stunning picture of Sarah, in her element with a smile on her face.

Alongside the snap, she penned: “I am absolutely devastated!! I can’t think of words that could possibly express how I feel about this girl & what she means to me!!

“I know so many of you will be feeling this way. For now, I’m sending so much love to you!!!”
