Cheryl has suggested that her late Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding contacted her from beyond the grave.

Aged just 39, the popstar sadly passed away from breast cancer in September 2021, leaving behind a huge hole in her loved ones' lives.

Speaking to Gay Times recently, Cheryl revealed that her car's sound system inexplicably began playing their 2004 track 'Hear Me Out', and she believes it must've been a sign.

"A song started playing in my car without my car being switched onto bluetooth or plugged in, and it was a Girls Aloud song," she said.

"It was 'Hear Me Out' by Girls Aloud, which is even more random because that song... I would have to search back God knows where, I wouldn't know where to look for it at this point. But, it started playing as I got into the car to go on a long journey.

"Very specific, and Sarah called her book Hear Me Out after that song, so I just knew it was from her."

Performing together for seven consecutive years between 2002 and 2009, before reuniting briefly in 2012 and 2013, Girls Aloud also featured singers Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh.

Meanwhile, former X Factor judge Cheryl admitted she was still struggling to comprehend the death of her friend.

"To be honest, I've never experienced or anticipated this grief," she told Press Association. "You know, I've lost grandparents when I was younger and I lost a friend when I was younger but nothing like this, the feeling of shock and disbelief and it still lingers now to be honest. I still can't quite believe it's real."
