Celebrity Big Brother: Sarah Harding's dad doesn't approve of Chad Johnson

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2017

Sarah Harding's dad doesn't rate her Celebrity Big Brother relationship with Chad Johnson.

It was Sarah who won Celebrity Big Brother 2017 last Friday night, beating Amelia Lily in the final vote.


But despite leaving the winner, she also left to a mixed crowd reaction including boos.

Sarah had a turbulent time in the house and much of the nightly highlights shows focused on her relationship with fellow housemate Chad Johnson.

The pair even declared themselves official boyfriend and girlfriend just three weeks into the series, despite Sarah already having a partner on the outside.

Now Sarah's own dad has hit out at the relationship, saying: "Sarah has publicly shown that she is still confused and emotionally suffering after living for years in a bubble in the aftermath of fame.


“Chad isn’t what she needs in her life right now. Sadly but inevitably she’ll soon discover that he isn’t her Mr Right."

He told the Daily Star newspaper: “He is typically brash and she knows nothing about him. He’s given nothing away about himself.

“He entered the house boasting only of his looks, so what does Sarah or anyone else really know about him?”

Sarah's estranged father added: "[Chad] acted as if he's Sir Lancelot but he’s only thinking about himself, not her happiness. He’ll use her and then dump her, leaving her once again to pick up the pieces.

“Sarah risks suffering a nervous breakdown – but if that happens I want her to know that I’ll always be there for her.”

Speaking at the weekend after leaving, Sarah said she had no regrets about what happened.


"At the end of the day I was in a very brief relationship before I went into the house," Sarah told the Daily Star on Sunday newspaper. "It was a matter of weeks, so it wasn't very serious."

Speaking about Chad, Sarah went on: "Every day in the house is like a week and Chad became a good friend to me and we got close. It felt like we'd known each other for six months.

"So I had to weigh up the options. And you can't compare what me and Chad had to dating someone briefly."

The Girls Aloud star explained that entering in a relationship with Chad during CBB was a "very careful consideration."

She explained: "It wasn't taken lightly… I'm not that kind of person," she said. "I was in a very unfortunate situation where I wasn't in a position to deal with it properly."

And Sarah added: "I never regret. I don't like to look back on my life and have regrets. I don't look back in hindsight. It's too late.


"In life the only thing you can do is learn from your mistakes and maybe next time approach it differently."

Whether or not Chad and Sarah, who live 3,000 miles apart on different continents, will last the distance remains to be seen.
