Cheryl has opened up on a poignant moment she believed her late Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding sent her a sign.

The singer, who is currently starring in the West End production of 2:22 A Ghost Story, grieved the loss of her old friend and co-worker more than a year ago.

Sarah sadly died in September 2021 at just 39 years old after a battle with breast cancer.

Following the tragic loss, mum-of-one Cheryl revealed she believed Sarah had spoken to her one day through the radio.

Speaking about how she knows the star is still with her, the Fight for Your Love hitmaker said: "More recently, a song started playing in me car without me car being switched onto bluetooth or plugged in, and it was a Girls Aloud song.


"It was Hear Me Out by Girls Aloud, which is even more random because that song… I would have to search back God knows where, I wouldn’t know where to look for it at this point," the star told Gay Times.

"But, it started playing as I got into the car to go on a long journey.

"Very specific, and Sarah called her book Hear Me Out after that song, so I just knew it was from her," she added.

Girls Aloud was a hugely popular girl band put together by music mogul Simon Cowell, and shot to fame after they were created on Posters: The Rivals in 2002.

Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, and Nicola Roberts were also members of the band, and the girls rocketed up the charts with their debut single Sound of the Underground.

They later produced such hits as Jump, Biology and Call The Shots, becoming one of the most iconic girl groups to come out of the UK.

The group then took a break in 2009, before briefly reuniting once more in 2012 and 2013.

Sarah chronicled her battle against cancer on Instagram after revealing it had advanced to other parts of her body in August 2020.


Her mum then announced the heartbreaking news that Sarah had "passed away peacefully" in her sleep just over a year later.

In that time, Sarah released an unearthed song called Wear it like a Crown, and her own autobiography Hear Me Out, which was named from the song Cheryl heard on the radio.

Speaking about her decision to name the book after the track, she told fans at the time: "I called the book ‘Hear Me Out’ because it’s the title of the song I wrote on the second Girls Aloud album and I’ve always really loved it.

"The lyrics have always meant a lot to me. It’s been lovely revisiting our songs, looking back over photos and writing down memories from my last 39 years."
