The times we met she was always so bubbly, such a big beautiful personality. My sincerest sympathies and heart goes out to Sarah’s friends, family & band members".

Sarah's mum announced the news on her Instagram page, posting a beautiful black and white photo with the caption: "It’s with deep heartbreak that today I’m sharing the news that my beautiful daughter Sarah has sadly passed away.

"Many of you will know of Sarah’s battle with cancer and that she fought so strongly from her diagnosis until her last day. She slipped away peacefully this morning. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind support over the past year.

"It meant the world to Sarah and it gave her great strength and comfort to know she was loved. I know she won’t want to be remembered for her fight against this terrible disease – she was a bright shining star and I hope that’s how she can be remembered instead. – Marie x”.

Sarah, who earlier this year released her heartbreaking memoir, shared her diagnosis in an emotional Instagram post last year.

She admitted she avoided seeing her doctor because of coronavirus and revealed how she thought she had a cyst before her diagnosis.

She wrote: “At first I thought it was just a cyst. The trouble was the pain was getting worse. It got so bad that I couldn’t sleep in a bed. Eventually my skin started to bruise. By now I was terrified.

“One day I woke up realising I’d been in denial. Yes there was a pandemic but it was almost as if I’d been using that as an excuse not to face up to the fact that something was very wrong.”

Sarah did open up about her cancer diagnosis with her fans in the candid Instagram post, but didn’t reveal how she was rushed to intensive care before her chemotherapy began as she was diagnosed with sepsis.

She wrote: “With both my lungs and kidneys failing, doctors decided to put me into an induced coma.

“Even once I was off the ventilator I couldn’t speak properly. All I could do was make noises like a chimpanzee trying to communicate.”

Sarah then went on to start her chemotherapy treatment and have a mastectomy.

Reflecting on the mastectomy procedure, which is an operation to remove a breast, she added: “I remember the surgeons saying they would make a drawing of what parts of my breast needed to be taken away and it was virtually all of it.
