Girls Aloud paid a touching tribute to their late bandmate Sarah Harding on what would have been her 42nd birthday.
The singer tragically passed away two years ago, when she was just 39, after a battle with breast cancer.
The heartfelt post shared on the bands Instagram page on Friday, featured a beautiful picture of Sarah, in a white dress with a huge smile on her face.
The girls captioned the picture: ‘Sending love to all Sarah’s fans, friends and family on her birthday today x’
Fans rushed to the comment section to share their own tributes. ‘Missed dearly but forever in our hearts’ wrote one follower.
‘We’ll miss her always’ penned a second.
A third wrote: ‘I hope she had a lovely party in heaven’ and a fourth said: ‘I miss her so much’.
The remaining members, Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts have reportedly been working on a music video in tribute to their beloved Sarah.
After years of speculation about a possible return, it will be the band’s first single in 11 years, with the shoot taking place in a studio in North London recently.
The reunion, initially thought impossible, ‘felt natural’ as the band came together to support each other after Sarah’s death, mending old rifts.
The girls are eager to create more music and are planning a massive reunion tour in 2024.
A source told The Sun: ‘They’ve got a single and a video in the can, plans for a full record of new music, and for the fans the most exciting thing will be a massive reunion tour in 2024.
‘It’s going to be huge — and they’re all very excited to be back working together, even if there is a bittersweet element to it.
‘Of course, whatever they do, there will always be nods to Sarah’s contribution to the group, too.’
Girls Aloud gained fame in 2002 through the talent show Pop Stars: The Rivals.
After beating boyband One True Voice — they then released their debut single, Sound of the Underground which went in at number one for Christmas.
