Sarah, 38, took to social media last month to reveal she had been diagnosed with breast cancer, with the disease now spreading to other parts of her body.

Now her former bandmate Kimberley, also 38, has said she was left "completely devastated" when she found out about the news and got in touch with Sarah immediately.

She explained that Sarah knows all her former bandmates, including Nicola Roberts, Cheryl and Nadine Coyle, are there for her.

Following their split in 2013, Cheryl, 37, Kimberley and Nicola, 34, remained close but grew distant from Sarah and 35 year old Nadine.

A source said: "There is so much shared history between them all and to hear this from Sarah was utterly heartbreaking. They adore Sarah and are with her every step of the way.

"They've all shed a lot of tears but all of the girls vowed to be strong and be there for her no matter what. They are closer than ever as a unit," the insider continued to tell Mirror.
