Sarah Harding goes back to school

Ah to be a celebrity. With the world at your feet, you can try your hand at anything you fancy. Take Kate Middleton, she made a passing comment about becoming a photographer, and next thing you know she was being flown over to New York to do work experience with Annie Leibovitz's muse Count Nikolai von Bismarck.
Sarah Harding is another case in point. She's a pop star with no acting experience at all, but once she'd mentioned in a couple of interviews that she'd like to be an actress, hey presto, a part in a one-off ITV drama and a film role were hers.
Faced with what will probably be a lifelong struggle to get people to take her seriously as an actress, Sarah's kicked off with a part in the new St Trinian's film, The Legend of Fritton's Gold.
She certainly seems to be enjoying her latest gig. Uniform's changed a bit since I was at school though - leather hotpants, pirate boots and full length puffa coats are more reminiscent of Girls Aloud: The Early Years than a trip to the playground.
