Sarah Harding: "My father is dead to me"

Sarah Harding has opened up about her estranged relationship with her father, John Hardman.

The Girls Aloud singer said: "After he and my mother divorced, he wasn’t a very nice person, and what’s done is done.

"Looking back, I think the split was more destructive and destabilising than I realised, because I started bunking off school and getting into trouble. 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 he talked to the press and tried to sell pictures of me as a young girl. He’s a very selfish man and as far as I’m concerned he’s gone."
