If anything, I channel that into positive energy, it makes me more determined
She rose to fame in 2002 when she auditioned for the reality television show Popstars: The Rivals on ITV and went on to become a member of one of Britain's biggest girl bands Girls Aloud. Two years after the girls went their separate ways, Sarah Harding is back with her first solo single, Threads.
Sarah's also made her debut appearance in one of the country's best loved soaps, showing up on the cobbles of Corrie, which hasn't gone down too well with critics. Sarah joins us today to talk about her happy return to music, letting go of her Hardcore Harding reputation and she sets the record straight on the backlash that has followed her role as Joni Preston in Coronation Street.
MUSIC: Threads is out on Friday 7 August
She was so wonderful, and I can't believe she's no longer here
Iconic showbiz star Cilla Black sadly passed away over the weekend at her Spanish home in Marbella, aged 72. Her impressive career spanned over 50 years and enjoyed musical hits as well as TV shows like Blind Date and Surprise Surprise.
A career that spanned more than 50 years began at The Cavern Club in Liverpool in the sixties, where Priscilla White, as she was then known, was a young cloakroom assistant who hung out with The Beatles.
It was John Lennon who introduced her to the band's management, and her music career took off - scoring 11 Top 10 hits, 20 consecutive Top 40 hits and two No 1 singles.
Cilla's cheeky sense of humour caught the eye of TV producers and she soon became one of Britain's best-loved entertainers, capturing the nation's heart.
In the 70s, 20 million people would sit down to watch Cilla, and by the 90s, she was the queen of Saturday night television, hosting shows Blind Date and Surprise Surprise.
But despite the fame and fortune, Cilla remained down to earth. Even when the girl left Liverpool, Liverpool never really left the girl.
It was love at first sight, and we remained in love until yesterday
