More Girls Aloud: Sarah Harding lands job as Britain's Got More Talent judge


Things might not have ended well between Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole on X Factor, but now the music mogul has recruited her Girls Aloud bandmate.

Sarah Harding, 31, has been offered a job on a spin-off of ITV1 Saturday prime-time show Britain’s Got Talent.

She is reportedly “poised to accept” the role as a panel judge on Britain’s Got More Talent which airs on ITV2.

The singer has previously dabbled in acting, appearing in the Danny Dyer film Run For Your Wife which was roundly mauled by the critics when it came out in February.

A source told The Mirror: “Sarah is delighted. She’s proven herself as an actress and comes across as sparky, bright and opinionated.”

“Of course she’s also very easy on the eye and will inject some much-needed glamour to the BGMT cast. She’s been offered the gig on the night of the final which, obviously, will be the biggest TV audience of the series so far.”
