Girls Aloud have had to cancel their plan to have a festive meet up with Sarah Harding due to coronavirus restrictions.

Kimberley Walsh yesterday revealed she's pregnant with her third child and said she told her news to two of her bandmates, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl.

The singer also told how she had been hoping to tell other bandmates Sarah, who is battling breast cancer, and Nadine Coyle in person.

She previously shared she hopes to have a pre-Christmas catch up bandmates have proved been too "tricky" with the coronavirus restrictions.

But London and much of the south east being plunged into a Tier 4 lockdown on Sunday means it is unlikely a reunion will take place.

Speaking in her exclusive interview with OK! magazine, Kimberley said: "I've told Cheryl [Tweedy] and Nicola [Roberts], because I've seen them, but I need to tell [the baby news to] Nadine [Coyle] and Sarah [Harding]

"I didn't really want to tell them over text. We were hoping we were all going to get together before Christmas with Sarah but with restrictions it's been so tricky.

"If I don't get to see them before then, I will call them."

Kimberly added Sarah is "doing well" and has been focusing on writing her autobiography.

She said: "She's doing well. It's such a tough time for her and I'm so proud of her.

"It'’s a strange feeling, because you feel proud that someone's taken it on and is dealing with everything she's dealing with…

"I'm so impressed she's managed to focus herself [on the book]."

The star also insisted Sarah's bandmates are all rallying around their friend.

"She knows we’re all there, ready to help in any way we can," she said.

"She’s really appreciated having that. Unfortunately, it’s these things that bring you closer together… but we always were [close] anyway."

Recently Sarah took her Instagram feed to update her 235,000 followers on her battle with the cruel disease.

In the caption, the singer insisted she's being brave and is fighting as hard as she can to beat the cancer after thanking fans for their well wishes.

She wrote: "Hi everyone. Thank you so much for all the messages of love and support that I’ve received since my last post. Everyone has been so kind and reading your comments and DMs has been such a huge source of strength to me."
