Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding has died following a battle with cancer.
The 39-year-old was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer last August and underwent a mastectomy and chemotherapy.
A post on Sarah's Instagram by her mother Marie confirmed the news saying "she was a bright shining star and I hope that's how she can be remembered."
The post reads,
A message from Sarah’s mum
“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.
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.
