Only a few months ago Sarah Harding had some very high hope for her future career as a soap star. The former Girls Aloud singer has appeared on Coronation Street as Joni Preston, somewhat of a trouble maker, apparently.

However, it seems that the 33-year old pop star has failed to make an impression on the soap’s loyal fan base. Many viewers have taken to Twitter to voice their rather scathing reviews of Sarah’s acting skills.

A source for The Sun has said that “it’s safe to say Sarah’s Corrie career hasn’t gone as planned. Fans and critics have been pretty unimpressed with her acting”.  The paper reports that she will not be making any further appearances on the show for the time being.

Her stint on the show is to be cut short as “it doesn’t reflect well on Corrie” according to the insider.

They went on to say that Coronation Street has been accused in the past of hiring famous faces for guest appearances in efforts to boost their ratings. Sarah’s appearance is “a failed experiment”.

Sarah herself came forward to say her experience on the soap was a “learning curve”, after fans slammed her performance.

However, a spokesperson for the show has pointed out that Sarah’s role was billed as a cameo appearance from the beginning.

“Sarah was cast for four episodes in a cameo role for a specific storyline. There are no immediate plans for the character of Joni to return.”

In the past Sarah did mention her nerves about joining the cast. She told ITV’s Lorraine “They are icons and they're pros as well and I came in thinking, 'Oh my goodness, I'm so going to fluff my lines, I'm such an amateur!”



It has been announced that Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding will be joining the cast of Coronation Street.

Although the role is a guest one and will only last for four episodes, Sarah is set to make big trouble on the cobbles – especially for Tracy Barlow. We already can’t wait!

The singer and TV star spoke of her excitement about the role, saying: “I am extremely excited to be joining Coronation Street. As a fan of the show it is a huge honour for me to join the cast. I can’t wait to get started!”

Sarah isn't the only member of Girls Aloud to make an appearance on the popular soap as Cheryl Fernandez-Versini also made a highly anticipated cameo in the Rovers Return back in 2013. 

We can't wait to see what sort of story surrounds the pop star during her guest appearance on Coronation Street



There is sad news for one Girls Aloud singer today as it has been confirmed that Sarah Harding has split from her boyfriend Mark Foster.

According to a source, it seems it was all down to her time on Tumble – a BBC gymnastics competition. Talking to The Sun, they said: ''She has been training for long hours every day for each of her routines and that's left her emotionally and physically drained.

''As training has intensified for the show they have seen less and less of each other over the last few weeks. She has been training twice a day and they have not really had a chance to spend quality time together.''

Apparently, Mark doesn’t like the way Sarah has been “acting” and has found her to be very “tired and very emotional”.

Unfortunately, there was even more pressure added when Mark was unable to go to a number of her shows due to work – he is a music producer.

''The show has left Sarah very tired and emotional which Mark has found hard to deal with. When they have seen each other, Sarah has been tetchy and snappy and Mark has had enough.

''Mark hasn't been able to go and see a number of Sarah's performances due to his own work commitments and that has meant Sarah has felt isolated."

Oh dear, what with Cheryl being all loved up and Kimberly expecting her first baby, we hope she doesn't feel too bad.



Some exes just can’t keep their mouths shut, even 8 years later. A Girls Aloud member has had her bedroom secrets splashed across the tabloids due to one not so keep-it-to-yourself ex boyfriend. Tut-tut! We just wonder why he chose now to dish the dirt! Find out what he’s been saying here as Niamh Geaney reports.



This doesn’t sound too good at all, Sarah Harding.

The former Girls Aloud member had some not-so-nice things to say about Cheryl’s tattoo recently.

Comparing her own tattoo to Cheryl’s infamous bum artwork, Sarah said: “Oh God, it’s ridiculous. My tattoo has meaning. I don’t know what hers means.”

We know Cheryl’s tattoo may not be to everyone’s liking, but perhaps Sarah should have kept quiet on that particular subject…

There will never be a Girls Aloud reunion at this rate!



Former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has got her eye on a glitzy Hollywood acting career.

Sarah, 32 is no stranger to the silver screen having starred in the school movie St. Trinians, but she now has dreams making it to Hollywood to star alongside the A-listers.

She said, “I’d love to do a massive feature film, an American production, something a little different.

“I’ve supported British, I’ve done BBC drama and St. Trinians, but I’d like to see what it’s like working on the other side of the pond for experience. I’d love to do a Tarantino film.”

Maybe Sarah is planning on using new pal Tom Cruise to get a head start in Hollywood. She recently bumped into the actor and posted a snap of the pair on Twitter.

On top of a big acting career, Sarah is hoping to launch a solo career.

She said, “There will be a minority, or a majority, probably, waiting for me to fail, you do feel like you’ve got a lot to prove [but] I always want to prove it to myself first.”




It seems that Sarah Harding won’t be joining fellow Girls Aloud’s singer, Cheryl Cole on the X Factor judging panel this year.

The singer shared her opinions on the rumours that she was joining the 2014 X Factor judging panel, after a fan tweeted a message saying how great it was that Sarah was going to work on the show.

To which Sarah replied to the fan: “Err… Do NOT believe everything u read people!!!”

The rumours started that Harding might be joining the panel after Sarah joked with a reporter that it would be fun to work with Cheryl.

“Can you imagine me versus Cheryl?! I think it would be good fun. Me and Cheryl always have great banter on stage and she loves grabbing my bum and giving me a snog. She is terrible.”

Simon and Cheryl have already been confirmed for the 2014 X Factor panel but we are still awaiting to hear who will take the other two judging spots.



It seems that Cheryl is calling all the shots when it comes to the new X Factor series, as Simon wants to ensure that 30-year-old singer is happy with everything that is going on the reality music show.

Cowell is said to be keeping his promise to Cole and is making sure she is having say on everything. This includes who will be joining her and Simon on the judging panel to who she gets to mentor and reports have revealed that she wants the groups.

Simon has already said whoever will be joining the panel would be decided between Cheryl and him: “When Cheryl came back, we decided we’d agree together. I’m not going to put someone beside her who she hates.”

Rumours have been circulating that Fergie or Ellie Goulding could be joining the X Factor judging panel but nothing has been confirmed yet.

But whoever is joining the panel, Cheryl is determined to win and is even enlisting the help of her old band mates Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding to help select the next X Factor winner.
