Sarah Harding thinks there is no hope for Katie and Peter

It’s strange to think of it now, but Sarah Harding was one of Katie’s bridesmaids when she married Peter Andre back in 2005.

But the Girls Aloud singer (pictured with Michelle Heaton at the wedding) has been trying to not take sides in the split, having talked with both Peter and Katie to try to get them to patch things up. But even Sarah now accepts that it is a lost cause.

She said: “It’s so sad. I really hoped it wasn’t permanent and wanted to get them back together.

“They have both been good friends to me in the past.”

The couple helped Sarah when she split with ex Mikey Green.

She added: “I had a really hard time when I split up with Mikey and I’ll never forget everything they did for me. Whenever I was feeling low they’d invite me around to stay in their house to have a break from it all.

“Pete would put the kettle on and Katie would order in some Chinese and we’d chat all night.

“They have both been good friends to me so I’m not going to be drawn into Team Katie or Team Pete thing.

“Whatever happened was between them. I’ve been in touch with them and said I’m here for both of them. But it doesn’t look like they will get back together now, which is a shame.”
