Sarah Harding says she was forced to go public with her health battle after being spotted at a hospital.
The Girls Aloud popstar, 38, who also starred in St Trinians, says she felt like she had to break the news on her official Twitter account after a social media user spotted her in hospital and shared it online.
In the heartbreaking post, Sarah revealed she was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
But tragically she continued to say that the cancer has spread to other parts of her body.
Sarah told her fans she is fighting for life and is having weekly chemotherapy treatments.
She wrote on Twitter : "Hi everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and well during these uncertain times.
"I’ve not posted on here for so long, thank you to everyone who has reached out to check in on me, it really does mean a lot.
"I feel now is the right time to share what’s been going on.
"There’s no easy way to say this and actually it doesn’t even feel real writing this, but here goes."
Sarah continued: "Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a couple of weeks ago I received the devastating news that the cancer has advanced to other parts of my body.
"I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can. I understand this might be shocking to read on social media and that really isn’t my intention.
"But last week it was mentioned online that I had been seen in hospital, so I feel now is the time to let people know what’s going on and this is the best way I can think of to do so.
"My amazing mum, family and close friends are helping me through this, and I want to say a thank you to the wonderful NHS doctors and nurses who have been and continue to be heroes. I am doing my very best to keep positive and will keep you updated here with how I’m getting on.
"In the meantime I hope you’ll all understand and respect my request for privacy during this difficult time. Sending you all so much love….xx"Sarah shot to fame in 2002 with her Girls Aloud bandmates, including Cheryl.
Since the group split in 2013, she has gone on to win Celebrity Big Brother, star in Ghost The Musical and appeared in several films.
