Last year, former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding shared the devastating news that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer which had spread to other parts of her body.
The 39-year-old singer and actress has since been undergoing treatment, and took to Instagram to update fans on her progress.
It seems that Harding has also been busy finishing her memoir - which was announced in December - in-between hospital stays, and 'Hear Me Out' will be published next month.
‘Hi everyone! I hope you are keeping safe and as well as possible with everything that’s going on," she wrote. "I know I’m not really that present on here which I promise I’ll try to get a bit better at, as honestly it means the world to me when I come on and see all your well wishes. Thank you for the love and support, on bad days it helps me so much.’
"So here’s a little update from me… Mum, the dogs and I had a really lovely but quiet Christmas together, which was different to my usual, but seemed a fitting way to end such a strange year. And since then, in between treatments and hospital visits I’ve managed to finish my book! I can’t believe I’ve actually gone and done it and it’s now at the printers! I’m so excited for it to come out."

She added a synopsis of the book, which read: ”I can’t rewrite history; all I can do is be honest and wear my heart on my sleeve. It’s really the only way I know. I want to show people the real me. Or perhaps remind them. Because, somewhere – amongst the nightclubs, the frocks and hairdos, the big chart hits…and the glamour of being a popstar – the other Sarah Harding got utterly lost. She’s the one who’s been forgotten. And all I want is for you to hear her out.”‘
Girls Aloud split in 2013; since then, Harding has acted in various roles (including a brief stint on Coronation Street), released a solo EP and won Celebrity Big Brother in 2017.
'Hear Me Out' will be published on March 18th. "I called the book ‘Hear Me Out’ because it’s the title of the song I wrote on the second Girls Aloud album and I’ve always really loved it," she wrote. "The lyrics have always meant a lot to me. It’s been lovely revisiting our songs, looking back over photos and writing down memories from my last 39 years. I really hope you might enjoy reading about them too."
