Girls Aloud star signs up for The Voice Of Ireland

Sarah Harding is following in former X Factor judge Cheryl Coles footsteps as a reality show mentor.

Sarah is set to join the panel of The Voice Of Ireland – but is keen to put her own stamp on the job and is not intending to ask Cheryl, 30, for any tips.

‘That’s a good thing, as I get to do it in my own way,’ says Sarah, 31.

The Voice is different to X Factor, where everything is image-orientated. [The Voice] isn’t about looks, it’s about music.’

Sarah admits that she misses Cheryl and fellow Girls Aloud bandmates Nadine Coyle, 28, Kimberley Walsh, 31, and Nicola Roberts, 28, but it’s difficult for them to meet up.

‘Whenever I’m in LA, Cheryl’s here, and Nadine is often away – and now she’s pregnant!’ the singer says.

‘We’ve tried linking up when I’ve been out there, but we’ve been like ships passing in the night.’
