Sarah Harding: Celebrity Big Brother Ex Chad Johnson Pays Touching Tribute

Sarah's Celebrity Big Brother ex Chad spoke about the star's tragic death.

Celebrity Big Brother star Chad Johnson has paid a touching tribute to his ex Sarah Harding, who very sadly passed away this weekend.

Sarah and Chad met during their time on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017, and quickly became inseparable on the show. Now, Chad, 34, has spoken about his time with Sarah, and her desire to become a mum.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: "Sarah wanted to be a mum but she never got to do that. That feels very sad for me. I always thought Sarah would have been an amazing mum.

"... We had been planning to meet up but I had to move the dates and we couldn’t make it work — and then the pandemic hit. But we stayed in touch via texts and on social media. For us both, I think we always thought we would reconnect. We had a connection, a great relationship."

Chad also explained the news of Sarah's death was 'still sinking in'.

“I prayed she was able to get through it. It is still sinking in. I woke up to so many messages from friends. I still can’t believe she has gone. I was always thinking of her," he said.

Chad also spoke about their time together, explaining Sarah, 39, was happiest at home and revealing his regrets at not having seen her more.

“I wish I had gone to see her more, I wish I hadn’t have let work get in the way. I just always believed we would be together again. I don’t have that chance now. I miss her so much," he said.
