“I feel now is the right time to share what’s been going on. There’s no easy way to say this and actually it doesn’t even feel real writing this, but here goes.” she continued.

“Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a couple of weeks ago I received the devastating news that the cancer has advanced to other parts of my body. I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can.”

The 38-year-old went on to pay tribute to both her mam and the NHS staff. She also revealed why she chose to announce her news now, saying that it was reported that she has been seen in hospital by the media, so she felt it was time to let everyone in on what she is currently facing.

“Last week it was mentioned online that I had been seen in hospital, so I feel now is the time to let people know what’s going on and this is the best way I can think of to do so.”

Support for Sarah quickly came flooding in, as her fellow bandmate Nadine commenting:

”I love you!!!! You have always been able to achieve miracles when needed!! I am here for the all the way & always will be!!!”

While Cheryl Cole also broke her social media silence, by simply posting a broken heart on her Twitter account.

Our thoughts are with Sarah and her family as she battles through this time.
