Sarah Harding revealed she wanted ‘FFS’ on her gravestone before tragic cancer death

SARAH Harding joked she wanted ‘FFS’ on her gravestone before her tragic death at the age of just 39.

The star lost her life at the weekend after she was diagnosed with an advanced form of breast cancer last August.

And in her autobiography Hear Me Out – which detailed her courageous battle with the illness – she said she’d considered her own funeral.

“I keep thinking about funerals at the moment,” she heartbreakingly wrote.

“It might sound morbid, but it’s hard not to at this stage — cemeteries, plots, burials, what kind of send-off I’d like and how it would all go.

“I’ve also thought about an epitaph for my grave.

“I’m thinking ‘FFS’ might be a good one.

“It’s probably been my most used phrase throughout this, with one crappy event following another. ‘For f***’s sake!’ ”

Sarah wrote the poignant book in the months before her death.

The singer had a mastectomy and chemotherapy in a bid to prolong her life, but later learned the cancer had spread to her brain and lungs.

Her devastated mum announced her death yesterday.

In a tragic Instagram post, Marie described her daughter as a “bright, shining star”.

Susanna Reid and former bandmates Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts are among those to pay tribute.

Speaking as she hosted Good Morning Britain today, Susanna read a line from Hear Me Out about the course of Sarah’s treatment, which slowed when the pandemic hit Britain.


“‘Everything went into slow motion or stopped altogether’,” Susanna said.

“That’s such a devastating line.”

In a social media post, Nadine said: “I am absolutely devastated!! I can’t think of words that could possibly express how I feel about this girl & what she means to me!!

“I know so many of you will be feeling this way. For now I’m sending so much love to you!!!”

Nicola, 35, wrote: “I’m absolutely devastated and I can’t accept that this day has come.

“My heart is aching and all day everything we went through together has raced round my mind.


“Electric girl, you made us. You gave it everything and still with a smile.

“A white butterfly flew past my window this morning before I knew, it must have been you.”

Former Big Brother host Davina McCall wrote: “So, so sad to hear about Sarah… a star from the get go, hugely fun and outgoing yet also somehow fragile… love to her family and friends.”

Katie Price also broke her social media silence to pay tribute to her friend and former bridesmaid.

The model, who hasn’t posted for a fortnight after an alleged assault, said: “I’m devastated to hear my friend Sarah Harding has passed. You were always such a genuine and honest person.

“I will remember the all laughs we used to have back in the day… I always valued Sarah’s friendship and my thoughts go out to her family and friends.”
