Sarah Harding opens up about rehab

Sarah Harding has opened up about her battle with alcohol and mood swings in a post-rehab interview with Hello! magazine.

The Girls Aloud singer, 30, said: "The day I left for rehab, I was in such a mess. I've been told by those close to me that was when I hit my worst.

"I was crying hysterically. I felt ashamed, embarrassed, terrified - my emotions were all over the place."

She revealed that her public split from fiancé Tom Crane was the catalyst for her meltdown.

"Our lives had started to go in different directions without us even realising and we'd become like passing ships," she said.

"He had his career, I had mine, and somehow they didn't seem to marry up. As far as our future plans were concerned, I didn't see how it would work.

"I was so down but I just tried to keep busy and, to numb myself, I was drinking more. It was my way of escaping."

The singer checked out of a US clinic last month and feels that she is now in control. She has recently been pictured stepping out with a mystery man near her home in Ascot.
