Girl's A-loaded

GIRLS Aloud beauty Sarah Harding is following bandmate Cheryl Cole into TV — this time as an actress in a drama about the credit crunch.
The high maintenance blonde has been cast in a new BBC film — playing a high maintenance blonde.
Sarah, 26, will play the beautician girlfriend of a loaded City financier in the timely Freefall. She has had acting lessons but will need her wits about her — the actors in the show have been told they will have to improvise.
Freefall is being written by filmmaker Dominic Savage, who has also lined up Lily Allen’s brother Alfie, 21, for a role.
Dom said: “This is a film essentially about greed that in many ways has got out of control.
“It is a film that reflects our obsession with wanting more, wanting everything, the desire in many of us to gain the world, but in doing so, potentially lose our souls.
“Freefall reflects those complexities, needs and conflicts that I believe exist in us all.”
Apart from those acting lessons, Sarah — no stranger to putting on a show — has featured in a couple of films.
Her CV includes last year’s remake of St Trinian’s alongside her Girls Aloud bandmates.
Sarah told TV Biz: “Dominic Savage’s films are all about improvisation, which is pretty challenging, but that’s also a big reason why I want to do the project.
“It’s so different to what I’m used to.
“It’s a bit nerve-wracking too not having all my girls with me. They’re really supportive though, and can’t wait to see the end result.”
Sarah’s bandmate Cheryl, 25, is already making waves in her first season on ITV1’s X Factor.
She has fallen out with fellow judge Dannii Minogue — and become the fans’ new favourite.
