CHERYL PAYS TRIBUTE TO ‘CRAZY, QUIRKY, KIND’ BANDMATE SARAH HARDING
Cheryl has paid tribute to her Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding after her death at the age of 39, describing her as “stunning, unique, crazy, quirky, kind and soft hearted”.
The singer revealed last August that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, which had spread to other parts of her body.
On Sunday, her mother Marie announced the death on Instagram, saying her “beautiful” daughter was “a bright shining star”.
Cheryl, then Cheryl Tweedy, was part of Girls Aloud with Harding, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts from their formation on TV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002.
Sharing a black-and-white portrait of Harding on Instagram, she wrote: “Although we knew this day would arrive I am somehow still feeling at a loss for words that our stunning, unique, crazy, quirky, kind and soft-hearted girl has departed.
