Cheryl leads tributes on Girls Aloud co-star Sarah Harding's 40th birthday

Cheryl has shared a sweet tribute to her Girls Aloud co-star Sarah Harding on what would have been her 40th birthday.

The singer died at the age of 39 in September after a battle with breast cancer.

Posting a video compilation of the star, Cheryl, who’s been taking some time away from performing, wrote on Instagram: ‘Memories may be all we’re left with, but they’re enough to last a lifetime ✨ #Sarahs40th’.

Fans have shared the love for the late star in the comments, with one writing: ‘So so sad 🤍 Thinking of you all today. Beautiful memories to cherish 🤍✨’.

‘Sending you lots of love😢❤️,’ another said,’ while one more added: ‘So much love 🥺♥️’.

Actress Michelle Gayle added on Twitter: ‘Happy birthday Sarah Harding. I love and miss you so much. Know that you are always with me – literally! And today we are going to have that party you always wanted. My angel’.

Meanwhile, singer-songwriter Talia Dean wrote: ‘I miss you terribly. You was so much fun. I’m Missing your light and laughter, your music and madness but most of all your big smile and twinkling eyes. Have it large up there Hardcore, my girl. I love you [sic].’

Harding, who formed part of Girls Aloud with Cheryl, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, and Kimberley Walsh, died on September 5, just 13 months after revealing she was battling breast cancer which had spread to other parts of her body.

Following her death, tributes poured in for the incredible singer, with Davina McCall also remembering the star during Stand Up To Cancer in October.

Fans also launched a fundraiser for breast cancer research.

Harding’s mum confirmed the news of her daughter’s death, writing on her Instagram page: ‘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.’

Marie thanked followers for their ‘kind support over the past year,’ saying: ‘It meant the world to Sarah and it gave her great strength and comfort to know she was loved.’

She also hoped the singer would be remembered for being ‘a bright shining star.’
