Sarah Harding, 38, is undergoing chemotherapy after revealing last week her breast cancer has spread to other parts of her body. Chad Johnson, 33, who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017 alongside the Girls Aloud bandmate, has now spoken candidly about his ex girlfriend.
The US-born reality star said he wants the "absolute best" for Sarah during this "difficult situation".
Speaking from his Los Angeles home, the TV star admitted the singer's situation reminded him of his late mother.
"Sarah always reminded me of my mum and my mum went through the exact same thing," Chad explained.
"It sucks. I am hoping and praying for the absolute best for her because I know how difficult the situation can be."

"I know what Sarah is going through, I mean, I have seen it from day one to the very end and I just hope that she can recover."
