FROM her innocent childhood to those wild years as a party girl, Sarah took her motto from her idol, Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe: “Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”
With Girls Aloud she dominated the charts for a decade and earned her nickname “Hardcore Harding”.

Sarah, who died yesterday from cancer at the age of 39, enjoyed flings with big-name stars, got sober in rehab and rode a wave of public goodwill to win Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.
Here we chart in pictures a life filled with risk, passion and adventure.
A life that would have made Marilyn proud.
