Former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has said she is enjoying the new-found "freedom" following the Girls Aloud split but admitted it still feels "kind of weird".

Speaking on Daybreak, she said: “It’s kind of weird, I'm sitting here on my own and thinking those questions – I have to answer all of them.

“It’s liberating, it’s kind of, it’s a new chapter, it’s a release, but at the same time you do feel like you’re missing a part of you, if that makes sense.

"But it’s nice, you've got more freedom to do what you’d like to do. Like I said – I had more options and I wanted to get involved with this charity as well. And the music as well, concentrating on that and other bits and bobs in the pipeline.”

The singer is also the new ambassador for a charity that rehouses injured ex-soldiers and expressed her hope of one day travelling to Afghanistan to sing for British troops to "give something back".

Ms Harding, who was banned from driving for six months in April after driving while talking on a mobile phone, insisted that she is an "independent girl" who is capable of travelling on public transport.
