Today Sarah Harding, 39, sadly lost her life following a tough battle with breast cancer.
A number of big names have turned to social media to express their sadness at the passing of the pop icon.
Posting to Instagram, actress, singer and presenter Sheridan Smith wrote a short tribute to the Girls Aloud icon.
“So sad, what a sweetheart she was. Life is too short!” she captioned under a black-and-white photo of Sarah on the red carpet.
Meanwhile Fearne Cotton left a note on a touching post made to Sarah’s Instagram page by her mum, who had cared for her in her final months.
The TV and radio presenter commented: “Oh my gosh I’m so sorry to hear this. I’m sending your family so much love and strength. She was always kind and so much fun to be around. I’m very sorry for your loss. Prayers and love to you”.
Also sharing their thoughts on the post in tribute were TOWIE’s Jess Wright, TV presenter Alan Carr, model Danielle Lloyd and singer Alesha Dixon.
