The sad news was confirmed by the artist’s mother, Marie using her daughter’s official Instagram account on Sunday morning, “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,” her mom confirmed in a statement alongside Sarah’s black and white photo.
“I’d like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past year. 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.”
The vocalist previously uncovered her cancer diagnosis in August last year before further detailing her experience in her book called Hear Me Out.
“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,” Sarah inscribed at that time.
In her released memoir in March, she shared that her doctor had told her “the upcoming Christmas would probably be my last.”
Sarah Harding was best known for joining the ITV reality series “Popstars: The Rivals.” She won a spot as a member of the girl group, Girls Aloud and accomplished twenty continuous top ten singles.
They had six studio collections that were ensured by the British Phonographic Industry, two of which went to number one in the UK and gathered an aggregate of five BRIT Award designations. In 2009, Girls Aloud won “Best Single” with their song “The Promise”.

I worked with Sarah quite a few times back in the 90s when I was a fashion stylist. She was so, so lovely. She always had time for you and was so warm with the most gorgeous smile.

Sarah Harding’s ‘follow the leader’ ad libs and then ending it on that note deserve to be on the timeline today, she was the core of GA performances #RIPSarah pic.twitter.com/oG8mStKKd7— Scott Gayham (@scottgayham) September 5, 2021
My favourite Sarah Harding moment was when Girls Aloud played my student union during the Love Machine promo era and the crowd were twats so Sarah and Cheryl called them all “posh dickheads” at one point, and told them to “fuck off” at another point.— And I’m Victoria, Malcolm… ✌🏻🐑 (@husseybyname) September 5, 2021
Gone far too soon. RIP Sarah Harding #SarahHarding pic.twitter.com/N0K0yqGO0h— Sally Davies (@Salda76) September 5, 2021
Sarah Harding was the first voice you heard on Girls Aloud’s debut single, Sound of the Underground, and she was the last you heard on Ten’s last track, Every Now And Then.— george (@georgegriffiths) September 5, 2021
