When I climbed Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief five years ago it was honestly one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. The motivation lay in knowing it could help in eradicating malaria and ultimately saving lives by providing mosquito nets.
“I didn’t for one minute think that only a year later I would get malaria myself and become so ill that at one point I was given 24 hours to live. It was the scariest thing you could ever imagine for me and for my friends and family.
“The pain I felt and went through, it’s what so many people go through, all because they don’t have a mosquito net which could save their life. I was lucky, I had the best care I could get. Some people are not so lucky. A £5 mosquito net could keep a child safe and really does help.
In 2009 when I climbed Kilimanjaro a million kids a year were dying of malaria, now five years later it’s 150,000 less per year. That’s 150,000 kids saved so we are beating malaria. But there are still hundreds of thousands who still need our help. Sport Relief money goes to helping provide mosquito nets to help the people that need it most.
“I’ve decided to speak out about this again now because having experienced it, it’s obviously very close to my heart and I want people to know how easy it is to help.

After Sarah missed her first appearance 2 weeks ago due to being ill, she rescheduled and made it to the Loose Women studios this afternoon.
She talked about her first solo gig last night at Kensington Palace and how it was to perform on her own, talking about being excited for her showcase next week, nerves and just loving being back on stage again. She also spoke with Jamelia about her time as a mentor on The Voice of Ireland.
Thanks to Will for uploading the video on Youtube, watch the interview again.
Sarah stole the show at Street Child’s 5th Anniversary party at Kensington Palace last night.
She was dressed to definitely impress, in a Yuvna Kim sheer black gown, blunt cut shoulder-length bob and fringe with smoky eyes.
Her stylist, Ozzy Shah, has kindly shared this little video from one of her new songs on instagram:
And to end the night, Sarah left a message to her fans straight after the performance:
Do what Sarah says and give what you can afford to Street Child [HERE] – We did!

Thank you @OzzyShahStylist!!

Check out Kimberley being shown some old clips of her early acting career, that was aired last night on ‘You Saw Them Here First’.
You may recognise 1 or 2 of them from other programmes we’ve seen in the past, but there’s some unseen footage too.
She also went to surprise Samia Ghadie on the set of Coronation Street to show her some old clips, where Kimberley even stars in the same clip ‘The Ward’, bullying Samia’s character!

Sarah Harding is paranoid her solo bid is being weighed down by her ‘bouncing thighs’ after the star dubbed herself as ‘a flabby size 8’.
Despite her enviable pop figure, the 32-year-old has hit the treadmill in a bid to regain her washboard stomach.
‘I was a size 6 from all the dancing in Girls Aloud and I must have been under eight stone and that is not a healthy weight,’ the blonde star admitted.
‘Now I am a flabby size 8 and my thighs and bum really need toning. I don’t want them bouncing back on me! I was always sporty before the band and I was a gym bunny.’
Harding is the last of the disbanded girl group to go it alone in the music business, which she is now game to do after putting rehab and wild partying behind her.
‘My twenties were definitely for break-ups and hangovers and it’s a real learning curve. I think your twenties are the most dramatic years of your life,’ she explained. ‘I am forever going to have that coming back and biting me on the arse but we all make our mistakes.
‘I went through a lot of s***… mine just got publicised.’
Harding insists she has ‘grown up a lot’ and hopes to have kids by 35 after falling in love with childhood pal, DJ Mark Foster.
But first up, she must overcome a daunting debut tomorrow at Kensington Palace in London with an acoustic set in aid of Street Child.
‘I guess when you take time out of the limelight, your confidence does take a knocking,’ admitted the anxious star. ‘I have never met William and Kate before so hopefully I will get to meet them.’
Lining up a musical treat for the royals, the star added: ‘There is this one particular track called Alter-Ego that I love. I wrote it with Kylie’s producers and it’s a bit of a sinister track. It talks about my other side.’
On Wednesday March 26th Sarah will appear at the O2 Academy Islington for her first showcase gig (tickets available from www.livenation.co.uk)
