Sarah Harding is not leaving chart topping band Girls Aloud to embark on a solo career.

The blonde singer, 26 – who was reported to be in talks with record bosses about life after the band – has released a statement on the band’s website.

‘I’ve just got back from an amazing holiday in Thailand to find out that I’m leaving the band!’ Sarah writes.

‘Of course, I’ve got no intention of going solo. Why would I? Ignore the rumours, they’re never true!’
