Cheryl, 37, has opened up on dealing with her friend Sarah Harding’s “terrible news” in light of her breast cancer diagnosis last year. In an excerpt of Sarah’s new book, Hear Me Out, which was published in The Times, Cheryl revealed her reaction to her friend’s devastating news came as she received an update over a video call.
I lost it and started crying
Writing a passage in the actress’s book, Cheryl revealed her reaction to being given “terrible” news by her friend.
She wrote: “Mostly, I try to keep my own emotions in check, but on one FaceTime call with her the other day, I couldn’t hold it in.
“She relayed some terrible news, and I lost it and started crying.”
Cheryl went on to explain how the situation had reversed and Sarah, 38, started comforting her friend after delivering the bad news.
The Greatest Dancer judge continued: “The mad thing is, it ended up with Sarah comforting me.
“That’s probably the thing I love most about Sarah; she doesn’t have a bad bone in her body.”
Cheryl and Sarah have been friends for almost 20 years after meeting in 2002 as part of band Girls Aloud which was formed on ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals.
In the excerpt Sarah explained that doctors told her she “probably” wouldn’t see another Christmas.
The singer is now looking at treatment after developing a secondary tumour at the base of her spine.
Sarah took to social media in August last year to share her devastating diagnosis with fans.
She revealed how she had been diagnosed with breast cancer which had already spread to other parts of her body, but was keeping positive and already undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
At the end of February the St Trinian’s actress took to Twitter to address the “bad days” she continues to face in her battle with cancer.
After opening up on her health, Sarah spoke of how she appreciates the ongoing support she has received from her fans.

She said: “Thank you for the love and support, on bad days it helps me so much.
“I know I’m not really that present on here which I promise I’ll try to get a bit better at, as honestly it means the world to me when I come on and see all your well wishes.”
She continued: “In between treatments and hospital visits I’ve managed to finish my book!
“It’s been lovely revisiting our songs, looking back over photos and writing down memories from my last 39 years.”
Another of Sarah’s former bandmates, Kimberley Walsh, spoke to Entertainment Daily last month about feeling “helpless” regarding her friend’s prognosis.
She said: “With anyone who’s suffering from cancer, that is the one thing you do feel is completely helpless.
“All you can do is literally be there, constantly remind them that you’re there to help with whatever is humanly possible.”
Kimberley added: ““And she knows, she fully knows that, and that’s all that I care about that she knows that she can ask us for anything.”
