“She was my bridesmaid. You lose touch with people over the years for various reasons,” price recalled during an appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch in April.

“I’ve even left her an Instagram message to get in contact. She’s not in a good place now. She’s probably got her network of people.

“It would be nice to go through memories, happy memories. If Sarah’s watching, get in contact. I’d love to see you too.”

Harding, a member of the British pop group Girls Aloud, died on Sunday morning of breast cancer. She was 39.

The ‘The Promise’ singer revealed her breast cancer diagnosis in August 2020, and in March 2021 said the cancer had become terminal.

Harding’s mother announced her death 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.”

Harding rose to fame in 2002 when she auditioned for the ITV reality series Popstars: The Rivals. She ended up winning a spot in the group Girls Aloud, alongside Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh. Together, the group released four No. 1 singles and 20 top 10 singles in the UK and six platinum-certified albums.
