Celebrity Big Brother's Sarah Harding and Chad Johnson confirm split

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2017

Sarah Harding and Chad Johnson have split following Celebrity Big Brother.

Sarah, who won Celebrity Big Brother's latest series back in August, recently flew out to LA to meet up with Chad.

However, after three months together, the pair's long distance relationship is now finally.

The Sun newspaper reports that the couple have parted ways after struggling to make things work across the Atlantic.

Sarah confirmed in a statement: β€œIt is with sadness that I can now confirm my relationship with Chad is over. The distance has proved too much of an obstacle even though we both tried to make it work.

"I wish him all the best for the future and thank him for the memories we shared during a very interesting summer.”

The news comes after Sarah had denied previous rumours of a split as she announced plans for a new album.

Discussing her past trip to America to see Chad, Sarah told the Daily Star: "All I have done in LA is eat, sing and meetings.

"I'm going back in a couple of weeks... we are going to finish recording.”

Sarah won Celebrity Big Brother this summer after beating X Factor's Amelia Lily and Made In Chelsea's Sam Thompson in the final.

Sarah's victory followed Girls Aloud band mate Nadine Coyle begging her NOT to enter the house.

Chatting earlier this year, Nadine told The Sun newspaper that she was "petrified" after learning Sarah was heading into Celebrity Big Brother.

She recalled: "She called to tell me she was doing it and my immediate thing was, 'Don't. Absolutely not. Why? Stop this immediately. Retract, retract.

"Don't do it. Just don't do it. We'll go on a holiday. I'm going to Spain, come'."

But Nadine conceded: "She wanted to do it. And if she's got it in her mind she's going to do something, she's going to go and do it."

Celebrity Big Brother will return to Channel 5 in January with a new series.
