She’s got a whole lotta history, she can’t speak French, but this Girls Aloud star is loaded with sass and ready to face our sweetie jar of random questions... Get ready to scream something kinda ooooh! — this is Sarah Harding...
If you could be any sea creature, what would it be and why?
A MERMAID! I’ve always wanted to be a mermaid.
What’s your biggest pet hate?
Biting my nails. Or people who hate pets. No?
Are dragons real?
[Laughs hysterically] WHAT? Are we talking real dragons or people that act like them? My headmistress was a dragon. Maybe at Hogwarts they are.
Are you good at
Craaaap! I put on this big brash front, but if I really like someone I’m actually quite quiet.
What’s the worst day of the week?
Could you write Britney Spears a hit single?
Possibly. I’d have to think of something, as she’s already done a lot of things. Something uptempo. Something happy and quirky like Toxic. Something like that, I think.
Who’s your favourite gay icon?
It’d have to be Kylie, wouldn’t it? I mean, if only for the Showgirl tour!
How many hours sleep do you need a night?
God! About ten, but I get broken sleep now. I get two or three hours then wake up. If I’m lucky, I’ll get between six or eight and then I’ll feel well and rested. But, because I’m so hyper, I literally wake up lots. My body clock is mental.
What’s the worst lie you’ve ever pulled off?
“I’m nearly there!” I’m always late to pretty much anything. People say that I’ll be late to my own funeral. It’s true.
Where’s the strangest place you’ve ever put your hand?
[Shrieks] Probably on a python. Wink! You know those places where you put your hand? At like Alton Towers? And something grabs it? It’s certainly an unlucky dip.
Is it time people stopped wearing stripes?
Stripes right way – vertically!
do when you wake up?
Want to go back to sleep! But generally, put the TV on or go on my phone.
What word do people use to incorrectly describe you?
Wild. They don’t know me well enough. Like, I know I’m quite lairy on the outside, but I’m quite settled behind closed doors. People say I’ve got quite a hard face because of the way I’ve posed in pictures over the years. Those pouty years. I’ve got resting bitch face. I can’t help that I’ve got it, but I’m actually quite smiley and chatty.
What’s the rudest word that you know?
The C word. I say it quite a lot. I try not to. If I’m on a date, most certainly not. I’m a bit of a potty mouth, normally.
How do you feel about
They're flipping brillian!
What’s the most overrated thing in the world?
[Pauses] I don’t know what to say without offending anyone. It’s so hard! [Pauses] SLEEP!
Have you ever thrown a diva tantrum?
[Howls with laughter] Haven’t we all? I think everyone has, especially women.
Would you be good in a
Errr... I wouldn’t like to say. I’d probably be better match. I always come up with something to say after the moment is gone.
Madonna or Gaga?
I LOVE GAGA! I grew up with Madonna, but I do think she needs to calm down a bit. I think she’s amazing, but Gaga is now. Gaga tried too hard to be started, but Gaga is best when she’s just being Gaga.
Who’s your style icon?
I quite like a mixture of Gwen Stefani, Rihanna, Kate Moss and Cameron Diaz.
Ellen or Oprah?
Oh, Ellen. There’s just something about her. Ellen’s got more humour to her.
Three word to describe you in the morning are...
Cranky. Dosey. Skatty.
Christmas or birthday?
Christmas. I don’t get fairy lights on my birthday. Do you?
What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve ever put on your rider?
Apart from the odd puppy? [Laughs] I’ve heard lots of things about Mariah Carey and her normally I just ask for Haribo. I did once take the piss and say I wanted only red Skittles…
What’s the best book in the world?
I don’t read much. Picture books? [Pauses] Gay Times! Is that a book, though? Isn’t it more of a magazine? Suppose it doesn’t matter, I’ll go with you guys. GAY TIMES!
