SARAH Harding burst onto the scene as one fifth of the chart-topping pop group Girls Aloud.
She recently shot back into the spotlight after signing up for Celebrity Big Brother – which she ended up winning and bagging herself a new man. Here’s Sarah’s story…
Who is Sarah Harding and how old is she?
Sarah Harding is a singer and actor who found fame in Girls Aloud after auditioning for Pop Stars: The Rivals.
The group – which also features Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh – split in 2013, just a year after they reunited for their ten year anniversary.
Sarah is 35 years old and was born on November 17, 1981 in Ascot, Berkshire.
As well as being known for her life on stage, Sarah has hit headlines on numerous occasions thanks to her troubled personal life.
In 2011 the star entered a rehab facility for depression, alcohol addiction and prescription drug abuse.
She was previously engaged to DJ Tom Crane but is currently believed to be single.
Previous boyfriends include music producer Mark Foster, Theo Van Dries and Danny Dyer – who The Sun recently revealed she had a six-week affair with.
This all happened despite Sarah having a boyfriend outside the house when she first entered the show.
The Sun revealed him to be Aaron Lacey – a plasterer from High Wycombe.
What did Sarah Harding say after winning Celebrity Big Brother 2017?
CBB’s tearful champion Sarah left the house to a mixed reaction from the crowd, greeted by Emma.
Sarah confirmed: “I’m in shock. It’s been a bit of a tough ride. I was so out of my comfort zone, so many big personalities. I needed a new chapter and start a fresh. I just thought what better way to get out of my comfort zone and to show the viewers at home I’m just a normal girl. I’ve gone through a whole spectrum of emotions.”
Discussing her relationship with Chad she said: “I was in a short team relationship, I was dating somebody. We (Chad) found some common ground and started hanging around together, he became my best friend in the house, he has been my rock. I had to make a difficult decision. We’ve been through the mill together, it’s like we’ve known each other for months and months. We are going to see what happens, I would definitely like a future with Chad!”
But it has been a smooth transition from life inside the house for the couple as Sarah was accused of being drunk after interrupting an Instagram Live broadcast that Chad had been recording.
When did Sarah Harding have an affair with Danny Dyer?
Sarah had a six-week affair with Danny Dyer in 2012 when they met on the set of Run For Your Wife in which Danny played a cabbie secretly juggling two wives.
A friend exclusively told The Sun: “He had told her he was living with his dad in Canning Town and that he was single.
“But eventually his mask slipped. She felt hurt and incredibly betrayed by him. They’ve seen each other a few times since and it’s been very awkward.”
What TV shows and movies has Sarah Harding been in?
Sarah’s acting career began when she had a cameo in St Trinian’s in 2007.
The following year she starred in low budget thriller Bad Day before returning to the St Trinian’s franchise playing a student despite her age.
In between that she took on a role in BBC television film Freefall.
In 2015 Sarah appeared in Coronation Street for a few episodes playing Joni – the wife of returning character Robert Preston.
Her acting was panned by both critics and fans and she was not invited back by producers.
Sarah has also taken part in numerous TV shows, including Tumble, Celebrity Masterchef, Dating in the Dark and Celebrity Juice.
