Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding is “excited and scared” about single life at 30 after her split with DJ Tom Crane, who confirmed the breakup on Twitter recently. Harding and Crane had been dating since 2007 and were engaged.
“I’m ready to take another leap,” Harding told LOOK magazine. “I’m entering a whole new chapter and it’s scary. Hopefully the best is yet to come. I feel a little more at ease with what’s going on in my life. I know where my career’s at. I know what I want out of life.”
Sarah is set to reunite with her Girls Aloud bandmates next year for the British girl group’s 10th anniversary, but she has other projects in mind to keep her busy. “I love to perform and entertain whether that’s acting, singing or modelling,” Harding added. “I nearly did ‘X-Men’. I got called back three times but January Jones got the role. I don’t know if I would have been ready for it.”

Sarah Harding had a chat with Absolute Radio’s Adrian Hieatt about whether Girls Aloud are going to reform, her favorite films of the year, and her love of the London radio station. “I would like to think so but there’s nothing to confirm,” Harding said when asked if Girls Aloud would be back together next year. “I think it would be great fun. Ten year anniversary, it would be great to do something.” Watch the interview via YouTube below.

Fabulous magazine spoke with Sarah Harding for their latest cover story, asking the Girls Aloud star about settling down with DJ Tom Crane, 28, after failed relationships with infamous Lotharios Calum Best and Steve Jones. “My problem is that I always pick bad boys, or at least I did until I met Tom,” she explained. “In the past I’ve had some pretty awful relationships and I’m the one who always gets dumped. I’m very high-maintenance emotionally and guys just get fed up with me. That does get to me and it’s part of the reason why, when a relationship ends, I party like mad.”
The 27-year-old was also asked if her mouth ever got her into trouble. “Boy George once slated us as ‘Just a bunch of pretty girls,’ so when I bumped into him in Moscow, I went up to him and started screaming and shouting,” she revealed. “I was pissed and it was pretty embarrassing.” Read more and check out pictures at fabulousmag.co.uk.
Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding spoke with The Mirror about her recent car crash, which left the singing uninjured despite colliding head-on with a double-decker bus. “I jumped into the Range Rover and because I’m only just getting used to the new roads around my house, drove up a one-way street,” Sarah explained. “Unfortunately, there was a bus hurtling down the other way. It rammed my car into these bollards on the side of the road. My tires burst, the alloys are trashed and everyone on the bus had to get off because it had totally blocked the road.” Read more.
After splitting up with her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane, Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding tells The Evening Standard’s London Lite she’s fed up with men, and joked about switching teams. “I don’t really want to talk about men at the moment,” Harding said at the O2 Wireless Festival in Hyde Park. “I’m really fed up with all of them. I think I might become a lesbian.”
As for the continuous talk the British girl group will call it a day, the 26-year-old blonde insisted that’s not happening anytime soon. “I’m really excited about the new album,” she said. “We’re going to start recording it next week. We’re writing songs at the moment.”
The Mirror reports Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has teamed up with electro pop group Filthy Dukes to record a track for the upcoming Emma Roberts starring film ‘Wild Child’. “It is a really exciting project for Sarah to be involved with,” a source told 3AM. “She was chuffed to be approached and recognized as a singer in her own right. It’s a pretty cool album with some big names featured on it including Rihanna, Robbie Williams and Nelly Furtado, so it promises to be a springboard for other things. Sarah’s always maintained that she loves Girls Aloud and has no desire for the band to split – but that doesn’t mean she’s not willing to branch out.” Read more.
Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding checked in with fans on the group’s blog at MySpace (@girlsaloud) on Tuesday (March 4) in reaction to another report that the British girl group were calling it a day. She writes:
Hi guys, here we go again, another week and another story about us splitting up.
Why are the papers obsessed with this story?? We all love being in Girls Aloud, yes some days you do have bad days but this is the best job in the world.
We had such a great day on Saturday at Ant and Dec as it was the first time we were all back together and it felt like we were back,back,back. We’re all getting together later this week to start coming up with ideas for the tour and we cannot wait. Run for cover people, we’re coming to a town near you soon…
The Sun reports Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has been in contact with a select group of top music managers to launch a solo career after the group calls it a day. “She has gone to the best in the business to see if they would be interested in masterminding her solo career,” a source told the tabloid. “She has her heart set on being Britain’s answer to Kylie Minogue. The response hasn’t been quite what she expected. She thought people would jump at the chance to take her on – but it hasn’t quite worked out like that.” Read more.
In an interview with New! magazine, Sarah Harding is weighing in on the troubles Britney Spears has been going through, and insisted she’ll not follow the same self-destructive path of her pop peer. “I don’t mean this in a horrible way but I feel like Britney has lost it a bit,” the Girls Aloud star said. “I feel sorry for her. I just feel she doesn’t have the right people around her. She’s got issues. She’s had too much too young.” The 25-year-old added, “I won’t end up like her! I managed to live my life before I got in the band and I still live my life. I’m lucky.”
