SARAH Harding is 'remaining positive in cancer fight' says her Celebrity Big Brother co-star Sandi Bogle.
The former Girls Aloud singer is currently battling advanced breast cancer.
Gogglebox star Sandi, 56, recalled the moment she heard the news about her pal.
"It is devastating to hear what is happening to such a young and talented girl – I broke down when I heard," Sandi told Closer.
"I've had a couple of messages from her at the start [of her diagnosis] saying she was OK.
Sandi said of the singer: "She is a fighter, she is fighting for it and she's not going to give up."
Sandi and Sarah, 39, became friends after spending time together in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2017.
Sarah went on to win the show and the pair continued their friendship off-screen.
Sandi added: "She likes to be the last one on the dance floor and so do I. We've met up in clubs and we could party – everyone would leave and we'd still be there.
"She's a firefly, like me – we live for the moment!"
Sarah revealed her breast cancer diagnosis last year by tweeting picture of herself in hospital.
She heartbreakingly shared she was undergoing chemotherapy and that the cancer had spread to other parts of her body.
Sarah wrote: "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."
She added: "My amazing mum, family and close friends are helping me through this, and I want to say a thank you to the wonderful NHS doctors and nurses who have been and continue to be heroes.
"I am doing my very best to keep positive".
Sarah released her autobiography Hear Me Out last week and in it writes about her treatment and being being told that Christmas 2020 could have been her last.
She says in the book: "I keep thinking about funerals at the moment. It might sound morbid, but it’s hard not to at this stage — cemeteries, plots, burials, what kind of send-off I’d like and how it would all go.
"I’ve also thought about an epitaph for my grave. I’m thinking ‘FFS’ might be a good one.
"It’s probably been my most used phrase throughout this, with one crappy event following another. ‘For f***’s sake!’ "
