Former Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding has revealed her first ever solo single - listen to it in FULL here!

It’s an exciting day for Girls Aloud fans, because Sarah Harding has *finally* followed in her former bandmate’s footsteps and revealed her debut solo single!

The singer – who was one beautiful fifth of Girls Aloud until the group called it quits back in 2013 – revealed new song Threads on Twitter early this morning, writing: ‘I’m so excited you can finally head Threads!!!’

That’s not one, not two, but THREE exclamation marks, so this is definitely a big deal for Sar.

The song is an bold, edgy, little-bit-sweary (‘don’t think I don’t know what all this bullsh*t for’) electro-rock number that is already stuck in the Now team’s head – and Harding’s hardcore fans just can’t get enough of it too.

Reacting to the single on Twitter, they heaped praise on the star’s efforts, calling the song ‘amazing’ and ‘worth the long wait’, with one even comparing it to Girls Aloud’s sound.

The song – which you can hear in full above – is currently available for pre-order as a digital download on iTunes and Amazon, or as a signed CD single (how retro) at Sarah’s official online store. And one cheeky fan has helped to bump-up numbers by confessing to ordering it on her mum, grandma and brother’s devices!

Sarah is the last of the Girl Aloud gals to go it alone, with her former bandmates Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh all enjoying varying levels of success with their solo careers.

And it’s a busy old time for Sarah at the moment – on top of releasing Threads, the star will also be returning to Coronation Street later this month after appearing in four episodes earlier in the year.

She’ll be hitting the cobbles as Tracy Barlow’s love rival, Joanie – the current wife of Tracy’s first husband, Robert Preston.

Maybe they could fix it so there’s a karaoke night in the Rovers so Sarah/Joanie could sing some of her new stuff? Now *that* we’d like to see.
