Kimberley Walsh praises ‘brave’ Sarah Harding for CBB stint

Kimberley Walsh thinks her friend Sarah Harding is “really brave” for going in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house but is worried that she’ll struggle to cope with the pressure

Kimberley Walsh thinks Sarah Harding is “really brave” for going in to the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house.

The former Girls Aloud singer has admitted she’s so proud of her ex-band mate for agreeing to go into the famous abode but is concerned that she’ll make a fool out of herself because she’s “easily overwhelmed.”

Writing in her blog for Hello!, she said: “I can’t believe Sarah is in the ‘Big Brother’ house! I’ve managed to watch a couple of episodes and it’s actually really bizarre seeing someone you know so well in there. I think she’s really brave to put herself out there like that as it’s a lot of pressure and such an intense environment to be in. Sarah can sometimes be easily overwhelmed so I really hope she’s OK in there and enjoys the experience. She’s been great on the bits I’ve seen so far.”

But the 35-year-old singer hopes Helen Lederer will help guide the blonde beauty – who was once known as the “wild child” of the pop group – if she’s struggling with the pressure of the house.

She explained: “I also know Helen Lederer as we were in ‘Horrid Henry’ the movie together and I’ve worked with her again since and she’s hilarious, a really lovely woman and has been in the business a long time so I’m sure she’ll look out for Sarah.”

However, it looks like Sarah, 35, is already starting to struggle as she broke down in tears yesterday (06.08.17) – in scenes that will air tonight – after her fellow housemates put her up to face eviction.

She said in the diary room: “I don’t know who to trust anymore. I just don’t feel like I belong here anymore.”

The singer later calms down and tells Sandi Bogle: “We’re living in a bubble. Everything is magnified.”

Sandi replied: “Stay positive, be you and do you.”
