Kimberley Walsh expresses concern over Sarah Harding's Celebrity Big Brother experience

Kimberley Walsh has labelled Sarah Harding "brave" for signing up to Celebrity Big Brother.

Kimberley Walsh is concerned for Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding and how she's coping in the "intense" environment of Celebrity Big Brother.

Sarah is just one of the famous faces competing on the latest series of the Channel 5 show. However, she has been hitting headlines for her bizarre behaviour, which has seen her bite former The X Factor finalist Amelia Lily, and Kimberley is one of those somewhat worried about how the experience is affecting her pal.

"Sarah can sometimes be easily overwhelmed so I really hope she's OK in there and enjoys the experience. She's been great on the bits I've seen so far," Kimberley wrote in her column in Hello! magazine.

"I've managed to watch a couple of episodes and it's actually really bizarre seeing someone you know so well in there."

However, Kimberley added she considers the blonde singer "brave" for putting herself in that situation.

"I think she's really brave to put herself out there like that as it's a lot of pressure and such an intense environment to be in," she added.

Kimberley's remarks come after it was reported by the Daily Star newspaper that a team of doctors and psychologists are keeping a close eye on Sarah's behaviour 24/7, given her previous battle against alcoholism and addiction to painkillers.

The singer also broke down in tears on Monday night's (07Aug17) show, when she was labelled an "attention seeker" and "insecure" by Jemma Lucy and Paul Danan.

In the Diary Room later, Sarah told Big Brother: "I have tried to stay positive and they ask me what’s wrong and I tell them... I’ve had a headache for three days. I’m not used to being in an environment like this.

"I just don’t feel like I belong here any more."

A spokesperson for the Channel 5 show told the publication: "Big Brother constantly monitors housemates and their behaviour."
