...There’s no easy way to say this and actually it doesn’t even feel real writing this, but here goes. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a couple of weeks ago I received the devastating news that the cancer has advanced to other parts of my body. I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can...

Harding after months of receiving treatment, Harding has posted her first update on the situation on Instagram stating that things have been tough but have thanked all her followers for helping her through.

Hi everyone. Thank you so much for all the messages of love and support that I’ve received since my last post. Everyone has been so kind and reading your comments and DMs has been such a huge source of strength to me. I can’t deny that things are tough right now but I’m fighting as hard as I possibly can and being as brave as I know how.

The former Celebrity Big Brotherstar continued to announce that she has been working on an autobiography that would be hitting the shelves after Christmas.

In September the lovely people at Ebury Publishing asked me if I would be interested in writing a book about my life story. It came at such a good time for me as it’s given me something fun and positive to focus on while I’ve been stuck at home in between trips to the hospital for treatment. I’ve nearly finished it now and this week Mum and I have been looking though old photos choosing which ones to include. It’ll be out after Christmas and I’m really proud of it. I hope you’ll like it.

Harding’s autobiography Hear Me Out is almost finished and will chronicle the singer’s life all he way from childhood to finding fame on the 2002 series Popstars: The Rivals. The book is also set to cover her time in the pop group Girls Aloud alongside Cheryl Cole,Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh.

We're all sending you so much love beautiful one.

We hope Sarah the best of luck with her battle!
