Sarah Harding, member of British girl group Girls Aloud, has died aged 39.
"It's with deep heartbreak that today I'm sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away," Harding's mother Marie wrote in a statement on her daughter's Instagram.
"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."
Harding was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020, aged 38, which had spread to other parts of her body.
