Untouchable top 10

http://untouchabletop10.sarahhardingaddicts.com/

Check out all the info on here and look at the videos :)

Help Untouchable

Girls Aloud to The TopBecause Top 10 records are UntouchableOn 3 May 2009, Girls Aloud last single before the break, an epic dance track called Untouchable from their album Out Of Control failed to enter the top 10 and reached number 11 on the Official UK charts. Till then, the band had managed to get all their singles into the top 10, holding the record of most consecutive top 10 in the story of girlbands. This single, however, broke the path.
The single the label had originally planed to release as the single was Rolling Back The Rivers in Time, but thanks to popular demand from fans, Untouchable was choosen instead. Some think that the single didn't get enough promotion and some think it was not the right track to release. However it may have been, fans played a part on it by choosing it as the single, and now fans want to recover that top 10 record by getting the song to the place it should have been: the top of the charts. But for that, we need your help.

The Plan
The objective is to get Untouchable back on the top 10. To do this, we are going to choose a specific week when we will proceed to download the song and/or its remixes from any download site that count towards the chart.

Guide to Download
The sites that you can use to download the song/remixes that WILL count towards the official charts are:
iTunes
7Digital
Play.com
Hmv
Amazon

If you want to buy the song more than once, don't buy it from the same shop. Ie. You want to buy 5 copies, buy one from iTunes, one from 7Digital, one from Play, one from HMV and one from Amazon. If you get the song 5 times into your shopping cart in the same shop, it will only count as ONE SALE and you will have wasted your money.

DON'T start downloading the song until we choose the week. If you download it now it won't have any effect, we all need to download the song at once on the same week.

TESCO DOWNLOADS DON'T COUNT. If you buy the song from there, it won't help the campaign.

If you don't live in the UK, even if you order the physical copy of the single, it WON'T count towards the chart.

Happy Christmas from everyone at Sarah Harding Addicts

St Trinians No2 in movie charts



The groundbreaking sci-fi movie has scored the third biggest opening in Britain and Ireland of 2009 after The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
The weekend's (19-20Dec09) second spot was claimed by St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold with $2.5 million (£1.6 million), followed by Jim Carrey's animated tale A Christmas Carol in third place with £1.6 million (£1 million).
Nativity! and Planet 51 round out the top five, pulling in revenues of $924,000 (£578,000) and $721,000 (£451,000) respectively.


How Much Longer Do Girls Aloud Have?

As their last single 'Untouchable' charts disappointingly concerns grow that perhaps the girls hang up their lycra and make way for fresh new artist.
Once the UK's biggest girl group, Girls Aloud's last single failed to reach the top 10, entering the charts at number 54 and peaking at number 11, a first for the girls and their worst chart position to date. With new, younger, fresher girl bands coming out of the woodwork has Girls Aloud finally had their 8 year reign of the charts come to an end?
The five beauties first shot to fame in Popstarts: The Rivals back in 2002 and since then they have continued to produce hit after hit, that is until now of course. Not that charting outside of the top 10 is a disappointing chart position, but when you are use to maintaining a certain level of success it must come as a bit of a shock when those sales figures start slipping.
The Saturdays, dubbed the new Girls Aloud have enjoyed chart success in the short time they have been together, deflecting away from Girls Aloud somewhat. Perhaps the public are getting tired of the same old sounds of which all Girls Aloud records seem to have and are beginning to look elsewhere for their pop fix such as Lady GaGa and Taylor Swift.
Hits such as 'Sound Of The Underground' and 'The Promise' have been a favourite of pop fans for years but it's the fresh new sounds coming from Cheryl Cole that us beginning to make us wonder that maybe they would better off pusuing their solo careers. Sarah Harding has taken to acting and Nicola Roberts seems to have a passion for fashion so maybe its high time to make way for new talent and for the girls to concentrate on their own solo projects.

THE STARS REVEAL XMAS AND NEW YEAR PLANS

GIRLS ALOUD even wake up to a stocking full of tacky presents with a satsuma at the end. 28-year-old Sarah Harding, above, told Goss: “I wrote my Christmas list this year really late. I bet I end up with a stack of smellies. At least I’ll smell good!”

Sarah Harding wants to be the next Bond girl

After the girl-band decided to take a break from music, Sarah plunged into acting.
She recently starred as a schoolgirl alongside Rupert Everett and David Tennant St Trinians 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold but is now aiming higher.
The leggy blond says she needs to work on her skills but would love to do some 'action stuff', Star Magazine reported.
"I'd be good as the kind of character that Grace Jones played in 'A View to a Kill' – a bad Bond girl!
"I don't see myself doing the glamour stuff. I'm kind of edgier", she said.
Despite her bandmate Cheryl gaining chart success as a solo artist and winning over the nation as an X Factor judge, Harding says she proud, not jealous.
"We all took this break and you don't do that without having an action plan. And that's what Cheryl's plan was."

VILLAINOUS BOND GIRL SARAH HARDING


Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding - who currently stars in new film 'St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold' - has revealed her next acting ambition is to star in a James Bond film.
Sarah Harding wants to be in a James Bond movie.
The Girls Aloud singer - who recently starred as a schoolgirl alongside Rupert Everett and David Tennant in the movie 'St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold' - dreams of playing a villain in the next movie about the iconic British spy, currently played by Daniel Craig.
She said: "I need to work on my skills, that's the priority. I'd love to do some action stuff. I'd be good as the kind of character that Grace Jones played in 'A View to a Kill' - a bad Bond girl! I don't see myself doing the glamour stuff. I'm kind of edgier."
The 28-year-old singer-turned-actress - who has been able to pursue an acting career because Girls Aloud are currently on hiatus - also revealed she is very proud of her bandmate Cheryl Cole's solo pop success.
She added: "We're all really supportive of each other. I'm proud of her. "We all took this break and you don't do that without having an action plan. And that's what Cheryl's plan was."

Sarah Harding Wants Action Movie Roles

Sarah Harding has caught the acting bug after starring in the 'St Trinian's' sequel - but what she really wants in the future is action roles.
Discussing her current film 'St Trinian's 2: The Legend of Fritton's Gold', the Girls Aloud star said of her character: "I play Roxy and she's like a more laid-back version of me.
"She's like an indie rock chick, but maybe a bit cooler and calmer than I am." Harding told The Times.
"I need to work on my skills, that's the priority," she added. "I'd love to do some action stuff.
"I'd be a good Brigitte Nielsen kind of baddie. Or maybe the kind of character that Grace Jones played in A View to a Kill. A bad Bond girl." Sarah continued to the newspaper.
"I don't see myself doing the glamour stuff. I'm kind of edgier."

Sarah Harding on Girls Aloud, St Trinian's and Cheryl Cole's fame




Curled up on a battered old sofa in a white-walled office at Ealing Studios, Sarah Harding is waiting to be summoned to resume work on her new career as an actress.
It is her new passion, although, as she would be the first to admit, her role in St Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold hasn’t exactly meant that much of a transformation.
“I play Roxy and she’s like a more laid-back version of me,” she says in an accent that’s a hybrid of Manchester and Home Counties. “She’s like an indie rock chick, but maybe a bit cooler and calmer than I am.”
A movie aimed squarely at the schoolgirls who buy her records is an astute or cynical piece of casting, perhaps both, depending on your point of view, and it helps when it comes to marketing a movie. But it says much for Harding that her role has been expanded from a cameo in the 2007 St Trinian’s – the film that reinvented a British comedy franchise which dates back more than half a century – and that she’s sharing the screen with the likes of David Tennant and Rupert Everett. It’s a laugh, says Harding, but she’s taking it seriously.


“I need to work on my skills, that’s the priority,” she says. “I’d love to do some action stuff. I’d be a good Brigitte Nielsen kind of baddie. Or maybe the kind of character that Grace Jones played in A View to a Kill. A bad Bond girl. I don’t see myself doing the glamour stuff. I’m kind of edgier.”


Kind of doesn’t come into it. Her striking looks and cropped blonde hair are in sharp contrast to the more girlie femininity of Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl Cole. Sarah’s the one with attitude, the southern girl who moved up north with her mum when her dad started an affair with a woman not much older than his daughter. Sarah is the caner, the one who’s papped strutting out of nightclubs in cross-
me-if-you-dare outfits that have young men walking into lamp posts. No wonder that apart from the movie career and her part in one of the most successful girl bands of all time, she’s entered into a partnership with Piers Adam, owner of Mahiki bar in Mayfair, to open a nightclub in Fleet Street.
For all the front, though, the back story is showbiz, but not nearly as brazen as the outfits suggest. There’s the steady boyfriend of three years in the form of DJ Tom Crane, a new house in Buckinghamshire and the steely commitment to a career forged in a teenage life of part-time jobs and gigs in back-street bars.
Though today Harding, 28, is wearing an understated grey ensemble of baggy hooded sweatshirt and skirt, with her tanned legs curled beneath her, you sense that, were she
to whip off what she calls her “comfy outfit”, there’d be a sequined frock underneath. She points out that she has been in a constant state of readiness for the spotlight almost since she was born. “I grafted, I really did,” she says. She spent years driving her old Ford Escort from one gig to the next, mostly playing clubs or caravan parks for little more than forty quid a night, belting out standards like I Need a Hero. “It was demeaning at times, but it was my apprenticeship,” she says. Her income was supplemented with a series of dead-end jobs.
“I was a barmaid, a hairdresser, I was a pizza delivery girl. I even worked in a car park once. But I was always singing at night and I’d have my head in the karaoke songbook, learning the words. And I always had it in my heart that I would be in London one day if I was going to make it on a serious level.”


Then out of the blue came ITV’s Popstars: the Rivals in 2002. Presented by Davina McCall, the programme created two groups – one boy band, one girl band – out of 40 wannabes who had never met before. Each week they would perform and then be ejected or voted to stay on, leaving five boys and five girls to be moulded into two rival outfits who would compete for the Christmas No 1 spot. It was a bear-pit talent contest that set the template for The X Factor.
Harding, along with Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh, became Girls Aloud and they beat One True Voice to the prize with their first single, Sound of the Underground, going straight to the top of the charts. For Harding, it was fate taking a decisive hand. She was in the right place at the right time.
Seven years on, Girls Aloud have five albums to their name, a string of hit singles, sell-out arena tours, Brit Awards and, crucially, they have gained the kind of street credibility that acts emerging from a talent show can only dream of. Arctic Monkeys covered Love Machine, the Pet Shop Boys gave them a song (The Loving Kind) and Coldplay asked them to open their two Wembley shows in September.
The Coldplay gigs were the first time that the girls had been together for months and rumours had been circulating that a split was imminent. After all, Cheryl Cole has become a national treasure as a judge on X Factor and just enjoyed a number-one solo hit; the others too are pursuing their independent careers.


Maybe there’s a tinge of jealousy when she looks on as Cheryl Cole becomes something close to a national obsession? “No way. We’re all really supportive of each other,” says Harding, who’s recorded three songs for the St Trinian’s soundtrack. “I was on the phone telling her well done when she went to number one. I’m proud of her, man. We all took this break and you don’t do that without having an action plan. And that’s what Cheryl’s plan was. Nadine’s got her solo stuff taking off soon and Nicola is doing her make-up range and Kimberley is doing her acting and presenting.


“I know they keep saying that we’re going to split, but we’re not. We’ve been on the treadmill for so long and we just need time to do other things in our lives. We aren’t getting any younger, and it gets tedious doing the same things year in and year out. We want to see what else is out there. We have a bond, but there are times when you are like, ‘Oh no, I just can’t sit in a room with everyone gabbing on.’ Sometimes you just want to pull yourself away and have a bit of peace. But at the end of the day, we stand as a unit and we know where our bread is buttered.”
The dark side of fame
The flip side of that is seven years as a fixture in the gossip pages – and on the net, where alongside footage of Harding singing there are video clips of her looking the worse for wear as she is stalked by a crew of paparazzi. She’s discovered that life in the public eye can hurt you and those around you.
“I didn’t really know what fame was before I got into it and I didn’t expect everything to be so intense. I don’t like fame, I like performing.
“For St Trinian’s we were doing a scene at Liverpool Street station and that was hard for me because there was nowhere to escape from the public glare. There were camera phones in my face every two minutes, people coming up between takes, sometimes during takes, trying to get an autograph. The place was full of paparazzi too, trying to get pictures of me in these hotpants I was wearing for the scene.
“I went to get a sandwich from M&S and I looked round and the window was covered with big lenses. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed. I was freaking out, going, ‘Oh my God, I can’t handle this.’ There are some days you take it in your stride and others where you don’t.
“I can totally see why people like Britney Spears and Mariah Carey lost the plot because you can’t live a normal life. Like yesterday, we were filming in a public place again and I was walking with these two big bodyguards either side of me and I feel like a bloody prima donna. And the public are all around and I feel like they look at me and go, ‘You ain’t all that, love. Why have you got security?’


But I didn’t ask for that. All I wanted was to go and get my lunch like everybody else.”
Fame has also brought her estranged father, the musician John Hardman (she decided on the stage name Harding instead, and says that’s who she now feels she is), back into the picture.
Hardman separated from her mother, Marie, when Sarah was a teenager. Mother and daughter moved back from Staines, Surrey, where she grew up, to Stockport in her mother’s native North West. She hadn’t spoken to him for eight years when he gave an interview detailing his side of the story in 2002.
Her father claimed that he tried to keep in touch with his daughter but that she sided with her mother and brushed aside any contact. He hadn’t seen her for two years when he switched on the television and saw her auditioning on Popstars and then tried to contact her again.


He was only interested in building a relationship with his daughter, but his attempts at reconciliation had been rebuked, he claimed, saying: “Some people seem to think that the only reason I have tried to make contact is because she is famous. I don’t want her money. I want nothing but a connection with my daughter.”


Harding is having none of it. “After he and my mother divorced, he just wasn’t a nice person. I know there are always two sides to a story, but what’s done is done and things happened that I can’t forgive. A lot of things have come out and I’ll never forgive him for that. And now he’s selling stories on me and saying, ‘I’m not in it for the money, I just want my daughter back.’ As far as I’m concerned he’s dead to me.
“I know it’s harsh, but I have no place in my life for someone like that. I came close to being in contact with him again, but after the recent few things that he’s done, talking to the press and trying to sell pictures of me as a child, things like that, I just thought, ‘You don’t want me, you just want the glory, the money and whatever comes with it.’ He’s a very selfish person. As far as I’m concerned he’s not a part of my life and my mum is. As well as my mum, I have my friends and I have Tommy. Those are the people that I trust.”
Securing the future
She and Tom Crane divide their time between a house she bought in Buckinghamshire a year ago and her apartment in Camden, while Crane is on the look-out for a new “crash pad” somewhere near the City of London, where their latest venture as part of a consortium with Piers Adam and Nick House, a nightclub called Kanaloa, opened a few weeks ago. She helped design the interior, had input into the menu and will be a frequent visitor, especially as Crane will be playing there. Perfect for a party girl who likes a drink or two.
“It doesn’t mean I’m there to party,” she insists. “It’s a business venture.
“I’m very much into investing, putting money into bricks and mortar. You have to think about the future, and I’m not ready to settle down properly until I’m financially secure and have paid off my mortgage and everything else. Hopefully we’re going to have more clubs opening over the next three years.”
Harding is a curious mix of vulnerability and toughness. One minute she’s talking of a picture-book domestic life (babies and a barn conversion) and the next detailing plans for a string of nightclubs. She mentions that she already feels old in the pop business, and the same ambition that set her on her route to stardom is apparent as she talks of investing her money to secure her future.
“I’m pretty thick-skinned, because you have to be in this business,” she says. “But actually, underneath, I’m quite vulnerable. I can be hyper and loud, but there are times when I want to be left alone, when I just want to be at home with the dog and the cats.”
Today is her last on set for St Trinian’s and she’s sad that it’s coming to an end after six weeks of bonding with the other “girls” and the likes of Rupert Everett, who plays headmistress Miss Fritton, and David Tennant as the villainous Lord Pomfrey on the set of what the crew have called Hogwarts for pikeys. No longer will she have to dress up as the lads’ mag dream of a schoolgirl in hotpants and biker boots with a low-cut blouse and stripy tie.
“I am sad it’s over,” she says. “The girls have been lovely and we’ve bonded. I love them to bits. And Rupert has kept us all entertained.”
Next year, at some point, she’ll reunite with the rest of Girls Aloud and maybe there’ll be a solo album too. In the meantime, she hopes to find time to just “hang out” with Crane and her pets and go for long walks. She’ll put the shades on and meander across the fields and nobody will bother her. “And then I’m not Sarah Harding from Girls Aloud or whoever. I’m just me.”

GIRLS BEHAVING BADLY


She has been the ultimate pop princess for more than seven years, and as a member of Girls Aloud has played Wembley Stadium, released five platinum-certified studio albums and had 20 consecutive UK Top 10 singles.

Yet, Sarah Harding admits she yearns for a new challenge and this week celebrates her acting role in the feature film St Trinian's 2: The Legend Of Fritton's Gold.

"We have all got other stuff," says the 28-year-old blonde of her bandmates' activities. "We get bored. We have been doing it for seven years and we need something else to mix things up a bit. We have all gone out and done other things.

"It means we'll all be able to go back to the band again and enjoy it. Otherwise it does become like a job - albeit one I enjoy doing. But then it becomes a routine and I am not a routine girl."

Sarah has the reputation for working hard and partying even harder. But it is clear that getting the chance to act has given her a fresh energy. Indeed, Sarah admits that her relationship with DJ Tom Crane comes second to her career.

In the new St Trinian's film, she plays rock chick Roxy, who arrives at the bawdy school stepping out of Kaiser Chief Ricky Wilson's tour bus. In costume, she proudly sports an engagement ring. So is it hers?

"No, no, no," she laughs. "It's not my own ring. I am not engaged - not yet anyway. I've still got a few more years in me. I think career first, then love life.

"It's all going quite well for me but I think I want to concentrate on acting now. I am going down a different route and I like to throw myself fully into what I am doing.

"One of the girls on the set said it is hard to juggle a good work life, a good social life and a good love life. You can't have more than two at once, and it's true. If I am working long hours I don't see much of my boyfriend. He is always out so it is tough. But work is my focus for the next two years."
It is clear that acting is Sarah's new passion and there are no immediate plans for Girls Aloud to get back together.

"Cheryl's got The X Factor," she adds, "Nadine's in LA and got stuff over there, Nicola has got her make-up range and Kimberley has got her things too."

So can she see a time when Girls Aloud will split up? "I really don't know," says Sarah. "I think if we can take little breaks, it will keep it all healthy. I also think we have saturated the market slightly. We might wait until next summer before we do another album."

One thing Sarah is determined to avoid is touring with Girls Aloud in 2010. She admits that the demands on the band members were far greater this year than ever before.

"I don't think there will be another tour," she says. "I am toured out at the moment. I am absolutely knackered just thinking about it and not getting any younger. Also, the production gets much bigger every time. I am not the sort of person who likes learning dance routines. It's not my forte."

Working on St Trinian's seems to have agreed with Sarah better than touring.

"They were all really nice girls," she enthuses of her fellow cast members. "We had a lot of fun. It was a bit of a shock - I wasn't quite expecting how much work there was. But once you get into the swing of things you know what is happening."

St Trinian's II: The Legend Of Fritton's Gold is out today.

Albums of the week - St Trinians


SARAH Harding does a few daft throwaway songs to go along with her role in the film and hardly does much to challenge Cheryl Cole's status as Girls Aloud's biggest solo star.
Noisettes, The Saturdays and new band Girls Can't Catch pop up too. Sadly, Girls Aloud's cover of I Predict A Riot sounds like a fight outside a kebab shop.

Sarah on the St Trinians Soundtrack


To see bigger check out

From ladette to lady: With her glamorous red carpet look, is Sarah Harding ready to outshine Cheryl Cole?

It’s the premiere of the new St Trinian’s film and slinking her way down the red carpet is a stunning blonde in a jaw-dropping floor-length dress with sheer panels and a train that puddles around her ankles, like the world’s most glamorous oil slick.
There’s an aura of one of the old studio actresses there, some Betty Grable, or a bit of Jean Harlow.
From some angles, she looks a little like contemporary Hollywood royalty on Oscar night: there’s a definite hint of Gwen Stefani, even Scarlett Johansson.
But this is no stateside starlet, this is Sarah Harding of Girls Aloud — and, forget Cheryl finding her mojo, Sarah seems to have discovered her inner goddess with a glam look that is a million miles away from her previous incarnations.
Because, and we’ll be honest, we were a little bit worried about Ms Harding.
For a while, it seemed it was all about clubbing and Ibiza and falling out of bars, looking, ahem, tired and emotional.
While the rest of the ‘Girls’ were doing chic and soignée, she appeared to be trying the retro ladette thing.
Now, though, well, who’d have thought it? One red carpet appearance does not a screen goddess make, but it does seem she’s been taking some serious lessons in style.

Caner Sarah takes a break


SARAH HARDING has been ordered to do the unthinkable - stay home and live the quiet life.
The GIRLS ALOUD star has broken her foot in a mystery accident and will have to wear a cast over Christmas.
Docs have told her she can't go out partying and has to rest up and heal (or should that be heel?).
Amusingly, there is a dispute over what actually happened.
Her spokesman insists the injury occurred last Thursday, when someone slammed a car door on Sarah's foot.
But a source at The Mayfair Hotel, where she's staying in London, told me she bust it stumbling out of bed.
The hotel mole said: "She slipped on a rug after a heavy night out. Her ankle was really swollen and it went black because of the bruising."
However it happened, it's not good news for the former Bizarre Caner Of The Year who loves getting stuck in over the festive season.
She'll have to let the party come to her rather than the other way round. And there'll be no dancing, that's for sure.

My mum's Aloud


SARAH HARDING has a new party partner in crime - her mum.
The GIRLS ALOUD singer treated mother MARIE to some posh nosh at Nobu in London on Thursday.
The night before, Sarah, took her mummy along to the premiere of her new film, St Trinian's 2: The Legend Of Fritton's Gold.
No wonder she hasn't been steaming. All very well, but it would be nice to see her return to her hell-raising ways for once.
Come on Sarah, don't be as dull as the rest of your bandmates.

WITH temperatures plummeting, SARAH HARDING risked catching a chesty cold in London last night.
The GIRLS ALOUD beauty hit town in an eye-popping busty number - for a family meal.

Sarah treated her mum and brother to a posh dinner party at Nobu Berkeley, eventually emerging from the restaurant at 1am.
It marked caner Sarah's second night on the town running, having larged it at the premiere and after-party of St Trinian's 2.
Not the kind of behaviour one expects from a schoolgirl...


Sarah Harding misses out on St Trinians 2 premiere afterparty due to sore feet


She was wearing pink, but Sarah Harding felt anything but perky.
She hobbled to Wednesday's St Trinians 2 premiere afterparty at Quaglinos in London nursing a sore foot.
We hear the singer turned actress bashed her tootsies the night before and was taking painkillers to ease the discomfort. So instead of continuing the party at her Kanaloa bar, it was straight back to her hotel for some water.

A pal tells us: "She was really disappointed - JLS and The Saturdays had gone back to her bar to help her celebrate, but she had to stand them up because she was in so much pain. She just wasn't up to it."
Hmm, those stilettos won't have helped matters then...
10.30pm Wednesday Sarah arrives at her hotel

Sarah's started acting ..& stopped acting up

Sarah Harding is pulling a Billie Piper to make that full conversion from pop star to TV and film star. First thing she's doing is ditching that Camden Caner reputation.
I spotted the blonde star at Nick Ede's charity event for The Stroke Association and she wouldn't have a picture taken with fans until she'd got rid of her alco-tipple from the frame. Then she said: "I'm behaving from now on."
Meanwhile, in her new show Sarah Harding In 24 Hours - on MTV on December 13 at 7pm - Sarah talks about the year-long break that Girls Aloud are taking.
She reveals: "It's time to do our own thing for a while. I'm no spring chicken any more. In girlband years (like dog years) I'm about 40!" Fortunately she still looks like a spring chicken - when she's rested!

GIRLS ALOUD'S SARAH HARDING WEARS THE TROUSERS AT HOME


GIRLS Aloud babe Sarah Harding can always be seen flashing her legs in a sexy frock while she’s out in public – but at home she wears the trousers.
#bodycopy a { font-size: 12px; }

Her bloke Tommy Crane told us he’s well and truly under the thumb and she calls all the shots in their roost. The pussy-whipped DJ joked: “Sarah’s definitely the boss. I just keep quiet and go along with whatever she says for an easy life. “Some nights I don’t finish Djing until 5am but she still won’t let me sleep in past midday. She wakes me up by throwing the dog on me. “I used to take him for a long walk so I could snooze in the park but I can’t even do that now it’s winter.” We partied with the pair at Nick Ede’s Stroke Association bash where bossyboots Harding laughed: “Is that what Tommy told you? “Well to be honest it’s true. Women should be the boss in the relationship.” At least now Sarah owns her own nightclub Kanaloa the couple might both need extended lie-ins. The pretty party lover added: “Tom’ll be DJing at the club – it’s great to do something together.” We wonder if Tom gets more of a say at work than he does at home?

Sarah's got film nerves

Sarah Harding is so nervous about the new St Trinians movie, she feels she is sitting an exam.
Not only has she appeared in the movie, she is singing the theme tune too.
Talking to us at a Stroke Association charity bash at Swarkovski, she said: "The first time I will see it will be with the girls, Tommy, my mum and my auntie. It's so nerve-racking. Then she was off, telling us "I'd love to have a big night out but I've got to work in the morning." What a light weight.

SARAH HARDING: 'I'M GOING TO BE A FILM STAR'


AFTER being invited to one of the hottest, most intimate private parties with a select handful of VIPs, we couldn’t wait to whip on our sequined hotpants.


However, we weren’t expecting to dance the night away with our favourite party gremlin Sarah Harding.
Talking to the Girls Aloud sizzler at A Sparkling Night With Nick, in aid of the The Stroke Association, she revealed that she has high hopes for 2010 and is looking forward to getting involved in a string of new challenges.
Sarah, 27, exclusively told us: “I absolutely love acting. I’m in secret talks about a massive film role abroad, although I really can’t say anything more.”
Despite constant probing from us about whether it would be a rom-com, a thriller or even a comedy, the sexpot kept schtum.

But she did reveal “big changes are on the way”.
There have been rumours she’s set to ditch to her vodka-guzzling ways, and we definitely saw a more sober side to her, as she rarely had a drink in her hand.
The party connoisseur is also going to lose her shiny pop image to turn rock chick, telling us: “I’m not really into pop music. It’s not what I listen to.”
And during her time away from the girl band she’s already had talks with alternative rockers the Kaiser Chiefs.
She said: “We’re both so busy we haven’t had chance to sit down properly yet. I’d definitely be up for doing something.”
The bash was held at the Swarovski Crystallized shop in London, where fellow singer Liz McClarnon, 28, took to the stage with a crystal-encrusted mic.
Sarah confided: “I’m really proud of the music I’ve done but it’d blow people away if they knew the kind of stuff I dance round my house to.”
We can just imagine Sarah inviting Cheryl round to rock out to death metal.

Sarah Harding turns all demure... the day after underwear malfunction during night on tiles











Sarah Harding was a picture of elegance today as she attended a ceremony honouring women in film and television.
The Girls Aloud singer came over all lady-like as she turned out to the Women In Film And Television Awards in smart black dress.
Her display was a far cry from that of the night before, however, when she was pictured up to her usual partying antics during a night out in London's Soho.




The blonde singer, 28, had joined a group of friends for dinner and drinks at the Sanctum Soho Hotel.
But she managed to show off her lacy knickers in a transparent clingy black and white patterned shift dress.
Today was a different story, however, and Sarah made sure there was no risk of any blushes by wearing a rather more dignified outfit.

Who wants some solo Sarah Harding?

Cheryl's already reached No.1 with her 3 Words disc, Nadine's working on her own album across the pond, and now Sarah Harding's dishing up solo material. As well as starring as Roxy in the upcoming St Trinian's sequel, La Harding has recorded three exclusive tracks for the soundtrack. They've all been produced by longtime GA collaborators Xenomania and the first, 'Too Bad', is a chunky slab of electropop which boasts punchy lyrics and a booming singalong hook. Then there's 'Make It Easy', which, with its spooky verses and dazzling pop chorus, is as close to The Aloud as anything we're likely to hear in '09.The final track, a rollicking romp through Bowie's 'Boys Keep Swinging', brings it all back to the film's theme as the perfect school-yard anthem. The full soundtrack, which also includes tracks by Florence and the Machine, The Saturdays and Noisettes, is out on December 14. However, thanks to the good folk at Fascination Records, we've got a one-minute clip of 'Make It Easy' right here to wet your appetite:

Sarah on cooking

It seems that between the five of them the girls have their fingers in ALL the pies.
Nicola’s fellow Alouder Sarah Harding, 28, is set on becoming a dom­estic goddess.
The Nigella Lawson wannabe wants to go on Celebrity Come Dine With Me.
The singer – pictured inset at the Make A Wish Winter Ball at London’s Dorchester Hotel – told Goss: “I love cooking Italian food and can make a mean soup.
“I’d definitely liven up the show.”

Sarah Harding swaps party-girl image for glamorous dress at charity winter ball







She’s usually known for her party-girl ways and revealing outfits, but Sarah Harding cut a more demure figure last night.
Looking elegant in a below-the-knee gold and black sparkly dress, the Girls Aloud singer dressed to impress for a winter ball.
With bright red lips and her blonde hair simply styled, the 28-year-old, who is now turning her hand to acting, is keen to tone down her wild image.



Harding was accompanied by band mate Nicola Roberts, who looked stunning in a full-length emerald gown for the event at The Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair, London.
Nicola, 24, has recently launched her own make-up range Dainty Doll since Girls Aloud announced a break after their Out Of Control tour.



Towering in bright red heels, the petite singer looked sophisticated for the star-studded event.



They joined a host of other celebrities for night, which included a charity auction, to help raise money for terminally ill children.
TV presenter Nick Knowles, actor Bradley Walsh, chef Ainsley Harriott and actor Freddie Highmore also attended.

Sarah Harding loves Estée Lauder

Sarah Harding gives Girls Aloud a much needed edge with her sexy rock chick image.But the stunning singer hasn't always been as confident.‘When I was younger, I wouldn't go to school without putting on a full face of make-up about an inch thick,' she confesses.‘I'm not like that now, I'm much happier in my own skin.'And the key to her fresh-faced look?‘I love the Estée Lauder facial range and Johnson's PH5.5

Song Of The Day - Too Bad

The surprisingly brilliant 'Too Bad' is the best of three Sarah Harding solo tracks on the 'St Trinian's 2: The Legend Of Fritton's Gold' soundtrack.
It starts off like Julian Lennon's 'Too Late For Goodbyes' then lets rip into a massive arms-aloft Dannii Minogue-style chorus, has a big sort of rapped bit in the middle, and even makes time for a little nod towards Westworld's 'Sonic Boom Boy'.
If we may humbly suggest a placement for 'Too Bad' in your Girls Aloud playlists, slotting the track somewhere in between 'Close To Love' and 'Girl Overboard' would probably do nicely.

Sarah Harding uncertain about ‘Girls Aloud’ future

Girls Aloud’ star Sarah Harding insists that she’s unsure how much longer the group will stay together.
While the group is on a hiatus, Harding says she’s surprised how they have managed to remain popular since they were formed on a reality TV programme in 2002.
“We’ve grown up in the spotlight, we never thought we’d stick around,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling British TV talk show host Jonathan Ross.
“We’re simply taking a break now, we all felt it was time… We said about a year – but we’re going to see what happens,” she added.
The ‘Love Machine’ singer added that she now has her sights firmly set on acting, as it provides a fresh challenge for her.

“I’m not saying I don’t want to sing any more but everyone knows I’m a bit of a drama queen, I really enjoy a new challenge. This is what I want to do,” she added. (ANI)

We were getting on each other’s nerves




Sarah Harding rolls her eyes, crosses her arms, and gives us a look we imagine she perfected while playing a sulky schoolgirl on the set of her new film, St Trinian's 2. We've asked about her party-girl reputation. And that, she insists, is just not her these days. She's using a year off from Girls Aloud to get herself taken seriously - both as an actress, and as a person, too.
"People are so stuck in the past," she sighs. "Why is everyone obsessed with my drinking? I do have another side. But people don't pap me going to business meetings or cooking dinner. That caner tag, it's not me and I'm sick of it."

We're confused. At today's shoot a newspaper lies on the table, showing a picture of Sarah, 28, coming out of her favourite London haunt, Mahiki, with Marvin Humes from JLS. "It was a business meeting," she says adamantly. Because as well as being an actress - she's here to talk about her latest role as school rebel Roxy in the St Trinian's saga - Sarah is using the Girls Aloud sabbatical to discover her inner entrepreneur. Along with the owners of royal hangout Mahiki, she's invested money in London's hot new nightclub Kanaloa. An interesting move for a girl once dubbed the Camden Caner because of her penchant for the notoriously boozy north London social scene.

"The club wasn't a reason to go out and party, but a business opportunity," she explains. "There comes a time where you have to grow up. I don't enjoy going out as much as I used to. Maybe it's because I'm in a relationship now. When I was single I loved being around people, but when going out becomes monotonous, what's the point?"

These days, Sarah's happiest at her Buckinghamshire home playing Grand Theft Auto on her PS3 and cooking home-made meals. Food's a recurring theme in our conversation and Sarah's face falls when a huge dish of lasagne arrives for lunch - she's on a self-imposed carb ban today. Her last argument with Tom Crane, 30, her DJ boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, was about what 'baking blind' meant. And apparently her friends call her 'Mama Hardcore' - the party animal who makes her own pasta.

The Sarah we see today is a far cry from the wild girl we met 10 months ago when she graced one of our January covers. She arrives an hour late, dressed in a baggy T-shirt, leggings and Uggs. Her clothing choice is to hide the paunch she says she's developed since the band took a break. She lifts her top to prove her point.

"That's usually a six-pack," she moans, even though we can only see a barely there curve on her size-8 stomach. "It's the change in weather. Me and Tommy are all about comfort food. It's nice though, I've got a bit of insulation!"

Funny and self-effacing - so far, so Sarah. But after four hours (yes, that's four hours) in hair and make-up, Sarah has been transformed into a sexy screen siren. Her conversations are peppered with stories from the St Trinian's set - of Rupert Everett giving her acting advice, and practising lines with Colin Firth.

Sarah's career switch comes after almost seven years in Girls Aloud, the band that formed in 2002 after winning Popstars: The Rivals. Countless hits, six albums and umpteen awards followed, including a Best Single Brit in February for their song The Promise.
Even apart, they remain in high demand. Cheryl Cole, 26, is now the undisputed nation's sweetheart as an X Factor judge and solo artist, recently bagging a No1 single and album. Nadine Coyle, 24, lives in LA and will launch her solo material next year. Nicola Roberts, 24, is focusing on her beauty range, Dainty Doll, and making waves in the fashion world; while Kimberley Walsh, 27, is pursuing TV presenting offers as well as negotiating fashion and beauty deals. Sarah, cannily, is avoiding comparisons with her band mates by setting her sights on an acting career.

While she's written and recorded songs for the St Trinian's soundtrack, that's where her solo career begins and ends. "I'm not in a rush," she says. "Cheryl and Nadine are both doing the solo thing, but I want to take my time. I don't know how Cheryl squeezes it all in - I'd be having a breakdown by now."

What does she think of Cheryl's debut album, 3 Words? "I haven't heard it yet," she admits. "I heard the new single the other day, that's quite good. I'm really proud of her."
So with the girls going off in different directions, are cracks appearing in Girls Aloud's foundations?

"It was a relief to be apart for a while," she says. "As much as we love each other, we were getting on each other's nerves. All we did was moan about being knackered. There wasn't any gossip because we saw each other constantly. These days we've got more to talk about and we appreciate each other more."

But the differences between Sarah and the others remain.

"I'm quite loud at times," she grins. "The girls think I've got a potty mouth. I've worked in male-orientated jobs before and never had sisters so I've got quite a male sense of humour. Something I might find funny, Cheryl will go: 'That's gross!'"

"I've got loads of different sides," she adds. "I go into different personas, but that's why people always said I'd be good at acting. When I'm on stage I'm lairy, but when I come off, sometimes I just go straight home to bed."

Sarah admits it's hard for Tom to understand the person his girlfriend really is. "We're always having debates," she says. "We're either best friends or worst enemies. We have a tempestuous relationship. He thinks I'm bipolar and mental and calls me 'nut-nut'. We're quite feisty, but that makes us. If he was a doormat, he'd have been gone ages ago."

The couple split for a week last year, with Tom blaming work pressures. So we wonder where he fits into Sarah's new less-pressured life. As a resident DJ at Mahiki, he's immersed in the party scene that she says she's left behind. So does Sarah worry that, while she's at home cooking, Tom might be tempted by the DJ groupies? Cue Sarah the actress.

"I do play the jealous wife sometimes because I've got to make him feel secure," she says. "He's probably more jealous than I am, but every morning we wake up in the same bed. If we didn't, there would be more trust issues."

Three months back, Tom moved from his north London home into the Buckinghamshire pile Sarah bought last year. And, it seems, Sarah's got a pretty good catch. "Tommy's like a house husband," she says with a grin. "I came home the other day and he'd made a steak and ale pie!"

So, the question begs, is he The One? "I don't know," she says. "He's definitely a contender. I'm focusing on my career. I want to be able to stand on my own two feet before I can think about marriage. We're like a married couple anyway."

In more ways than one it seems. "We're too tired for sex," she jokes. "It's good because I have other things to do before babies. If I do that now, what do I have to look forward to?"
Sarah's manager's baby, Felix, has everyone at the shoot oohing and ahhing, and between takes she grabs cuddles. "I don't know how I'd cope with childbirth," she says, grimacing. "I'm petrified. And morning sickness scares me too. I'm also a good old-fashioned girl and I'd like to be married first."

Sarah's bitter rift with her dad John must make her somewhat cynical about family life. She disowned him at 18 and changed her surname from Hardman to Harding. Sarah doesn't want to talk about him today and her silence speaks volumes. "My friends are my family," she says. "I was lost for quite a long time - that's probably why I went off the rails a little bit."

Sarah left school at 16 without any GCSEs but with a huge dream of being a star, and she's now working hard to fulfil her acting ambitions. As well as elocution lessons, she's having sessions with an acting coach, determined to quash criticism she'll only win roles because of her profile.
As well as St Trinian's, Sarah was in BBC2's Freefall alongside Mamma Mia! hottie Dominic Cooper. Although she's the first to admit she's got a long way to go, she's already been up for a role against a big-name star.

"There was one part I went for, but I think they were punching below their weight when they asked me because they gave it to a Hollywood A-lister," she reveals. "I'm sworn to secrecy, but it was really good to just meet the casting director and the director is happy to keep me in mind. My agent thought it was good experience for me.

"My worst fear is forgetting my lines," she adds. "And I'm my own worst critic. I cringe every time I watch myself. I'm not saying I'm going to be the next Kate Winslet - that doesn't happen overnight - but I'd love to do a Charlize Theron in Monster. I like to do things that will surprise people.

"Some people expect you to fail - I hope to prove them wrong. People say: 'She's playing a schoolgirl and she's pushing 30', but it's a bit of fun. Rupert Everett is playing a woman! People take things too seriously."

But taking things seriously is exactly what Sarah's about these days. Actress, country bumpkin, nightclub owner - she's determined to succeed at all of them. But, for now, as our shoot ends, she's off to Guy Ritchie's pub, The Punch Bowl for another of those business meetings.

St Trinian's 2: Legend Of Fritton's Gold is at cinemas nationwide from December 18.

Cheryl Cole and Nadine Coyle aren't the only Girls Aloud members who are going solo - Sarah Harding has recorded songs for the 'St Trinian's 2' soundtrack.
Besides starring in the forthcoming film as Roxy, Sarah also contributes three exclusive songs to the CD.
Harding was worked with Girls Aloud producers Xenomania to record new tracks 'Too Bad' and 'Make It Easy', as well as a cover version of 'Boys Keep Swinging' by David Bowie.
The rest of the album includes other original Xenomania tracks recorded by the Banned of St Trinian's and also 'I Predict A Riot' (Live From Wembley) by Girls Aloud.
The 'St Trinian's 2' soundtrack is released on 14th December.

Sarah Harding: 'I don't know when Girls Aloud will get back together and I'm surprised we've stuck around this long'




Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has admitted the group are taking a break from each other this year.
While the band have embarked on personal projects since finishing their tour earlier this year, it is the first time they have publicly confessed they are actively taking time apart.
Miss Harding insisted the group would get back together but admitted they were unsure when.
In an interview on tonight’s Friday Night With Jonathan Ross, she said: ‘We are simply taking a break, we all felt it was time. We said about a year but we are going to see.’
The 27-year-old blonde is now turning her hand to acting, recently taking roles in BBC2’s drama Freefall, independent film Bad Day and is also set to star in the St Trinian’s film sequel.
She said: ‘I’m not saying I don’t want to sing any more but everyone knows I’m a bit of a drama queen, I really enjoy a new challenge… this is what I want to do’
Bandmate Cheryl Cole’s stellar success on The X Factor and with her solo career has also raised question marks over the band's future.
Music mogul Simon Cowell is understood to be keen to launch her music and television career in the US, where she has already had offers.
Insiders have said Miss Cole could be a judge on the US version of The X Factor, which Cowell has earmarked to broadcast there as early as September 2010 – if deals with American television networks can be signed in time.
Kimberley Walsh has signed a modeling deal with New Look, Nadine Coyle now lives and spends most of her time in LA and Nicola Roberts has launched her own make-up range for fair skinned women.
However, the band are still tied to a three-album deal with their record label Fascination, which is part of Polydor and owned by music giant Universal Music.


Girls Aloud was created through ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and have become one of the most successful British pop groups of the decade.
They have notched up a string of 20 consecutive top ten singles, including four number ones, and five albums.
Miss Harding confessed she was surprised at the band’s longevity and success.
She said: ‘We’ve grown up in the spotlight, we never thought we’d stick around.’

Sarah Harding to join Mahiki founders at opening of London venue

Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding will join Mahiki founders Nick House and Piers Adam for the launch of their new venture, Kanaloa, a Polynesian-themed tiki bar with event facilities

Entrepreneurs Nick House and Piers Adam, as well as partners Sarah Harding and her DJ boyfriend Tom Crane, will be present at the launch of the party destination.
Kanaloa, which will be available for event hire from 6-10pm on weekdays, takes its name from the Tiki God of the Sea.
It will offer retro touches inspired by the Beach Boys music. Design features include tiki carvings, bamboo and a wooden bridge.
A long black bamboo bar at the venue will be surrounded by carved wooden pillars and lampshades made from exotic seashells.
The lounge will have a crazy paving stone floor and rattan screens providing "discreet hideaways placed at intervals throughout".
"Piers and I have both worked in the City and we felt there was a real need to create a sense of escapism and fun in an area that historically hasn't had the benefit of high quality bars and nightclubs. We are extremely excited about the launch and are honoured to be working with a superstar like Sarah," said co-founder House.
For a full review see our One's to Watch feature in your issue of The Guide 2010, out at the beginning of next year.

On Hard liquor...

We've seen her propping up a few bars in our time, but Sarah Harding tells us she can't wait to be on the other side.
The Girls Aloud singer, pictured with JLS star Marvin Humes at Mahiki nightclub, has invested in a bar called Kanaloa, which opens in the City at the end of the month.
And punters won't know what's hit them when Sarah turns up. She told us: "Kanaloa will provide the perfect escape from it all."

Sober Sarah Harding plots Girls Aloud birthday madness




EXCLUSIVE: Top caner Sarah Harding put the heavy boozing to one side and left her night out with JLS hunk Marvin Hume walking in a straight line after toasting her new career as a nightclub entrepreneur.
The Girls Aloud beauty saved herself just a few sips of champagne as she went for dinner with boyfriend Tommy Crane and Hume at the Texture Restaurant in London's Marble Arch before a nightcap at Tommy's DJ haunt Mahiki.
Her toast comes after a hellish string of meetings, putting the finishing touches on her new nightclub in London's City called Kanaloa.


Last night the star, 27, was already plotting the venues' first wild shindig, planning a joint birthday celebration for herself and bandmate Kimberley Walsh at the new city slickers' party spot later this month.
She just had a bit of champagne after a knackering week of meetings with designers
'Sarah just wanted some down time with Tommy and some mates after frantically putting the finishing touches on her nightclub', says my source.
'She just had a bit of champagne after a knackering week of meetings with designers', said the insider.
Excited about the club's opening next Tuesday, Harding told Metro: 'This felt like the perfect time and opportunity to inject some fun and frivolity into a place, usually consisting of suits and boots.'
'Kanaloa is going to be the perfect escape for those city boys to escape from it all and relax and have a good time in a tropical paradise within walking distance from the office but without the jet lag for once!'


The star said she was 'proud' of her latest vocation, after teaming up with Crane and owners of London's Mahiki and Whisky Mist nightclubs Nick House and Piers Adam for the project.
