Nadine Coyle has admitted that life has been “awful” since her bandmate Sarah Harding died.

The former Girls Aloud singer passed away last month aged 39 from breast cancer.

Speaking on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1, Nadine said that the last few months have been “really traumatic” for her.

“It’s been awful, I have to say,” the Derry native admitted.

“It’s been awful since she’s been ill. It’s been a really traumatic year and a half – almost two years at this point now.

“It’s a cruel, cruel disease that I know many people suffer with and I wish everyone [going through it] all the best. We definitely lost a great one there. She was unbelievable.

“It’s so fresh and I’m still thinking she’s going to phone, so I’m in that stage of it... I’m definitely still in the processing stage of it.”

The 36-year-old told Tubs that she believes Sarah has been sending her signs from beyond the grave.

She said: “Me and Sarah were close and always remained close. We were a great support for each other in the band and the years after.

“I was so close to her in life that it’s difficult to make that bridge. But there’s definitely been things, she’s made her presence known a few times.

“There were a couple of days when my headphones just flew across the table when I was sitting getting my makeup done. This happened three days in a row.

“No reason, they just flew across and the girls in hair and makeup were saying, ‘It has to be Sarah.’ There’s no reason why they would fly so far.

“And then I was talking about her one night in my house and something went flying off a shelf and I was like, ‘Is this Sarah? Is she just throwing stuff?’

“You just want her to send you a text and say, ‘Yes, it’s me! It’s me throwing you headphones at you.’”
