Harding said earlier this year that she was told by a doctor that she probably won’t be alive next Christmas. In her autobiography, published in March, she said she decided to announce her illness in the hopes that others who have concerns will seek medical help and not leave a cancer diagnosis until it is too late.
Harding became famous in 2002 as a candidate on the ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals, which paved her way to Girls Aloud alongside Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh, Cheryl Tweedy and Nadine Coyle.
The group had several hits including “Sound of the Underground”, “Love Machine” and “The Promise” before splitting up in 2013.
After Girls Aloud, Harding appeared in several films and television shows, as well as in a stage adaptation of the film “Ghost”. In 2017 she won the reality show “Celebrity Big Brother”.
