Michelle Heaton has shared a poignant memory of Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, after the 39-year-old former Girls Aloud star lost her battle with cancer.
The 42-year-old former Liberty X singer has recalled the moment that Sarah sang at her first wedding, in a tribute that she posted on Instagram.
Michelle has said that she considered Sarah as one of her best friends and she said that she is still filled with “much happiness and joy” from moments that Sarah did for her.
Posting a photo of Sarah an hour after her death was announced, Michelle wrote with it: “Sometimes gods plan makes no sense at all.. Leaving us with the questions why?
“My love strength to Sarah’s family.”
Michelle then went on to describe a touching moment, when Sarah sang at her wedding.
She continued: “Sarah lit up every room she went into.
“She was one of my best friends when we started in this business… and at my first wedding her rendition of “mustang sally” still to this day fills me with so much happiness and joy I wee a little with love and laughter..”
The passing of Sarah was announced in a tender message that was posted on her Instagram account by her mum Marie.
She wrote alongside a black and white photo of Sarah: “It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away.
“Many of you will know of Sarah’s battle with cancer and that she fought so strongly from her diagnosis until her last day. She slipped away peacefully this morning. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past year.
She added Sarah’s final wish was to be remembered not for her terrible disease but just as she was.
She wrote: “It meant the world to Sarah and it gave her great strength and comfort to know she was loved. I know she won’t want to be remembered for her fight against this terrible disease – she was a bright shining star and I hope that’s how she can be remembered instead.”
Brave Sarah had undergone gruelling treatment to beat the cancer, including a mastectomy and intensive chemotherapy since first being diagnosed in summer 2020.
But in March this year she revealed the devastating news that the cancer had spread to her spine and she knew she was dying.
