Girls Aloud songwriter Miranda Cooper has shared a funny song-writing anecdote about Sarah Harding in the wake of her tragic death.
The 39-year-old popstar sadly passed away over the weekend following a devastating cancer diagnosis.
With tributes flooding in from Sarah's former bandmates Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle, Miranda has shared her own memory of working with the late star on the girl group's Brit Award-winning single The Promise.
The track was co-written by Miranda, who revealed Sarah "just nailed" recording her lyrics.
An iconic line sang by Sarah in the song is: 'Here I am, walking Primrose. Wondering when I'm gonna see you again.'

Speaking after the Celebrity Big Brother winner's untimely death, Miranda revealed that the lyrics initially confused Sarah.
Miranda told BBC News: "After the single had gone to number one we were having a drink together.
"And she said, 'What exactly does the line mean?'
"We told her it was about walking on (London's) Primrose Hill. She thought it was about walking her dog called Primrose.
"It was brilliant and just perfectly Sarah."
