Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding ready to say "I do"
There must be something in the air, as another showbiz wedding is on the horizon. This one is a little closer to home than the recent nuptials of Jay-Z and Beyoncé and the hush-hush plans of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, and promises to be a more raucous, drunken knees-up. So who is heading down the aisle now?
It's Girls Aloud party-girl Sarah Harding and her DJ fella Tom Crane. The blonde pop star has created quite a wild reputation for herself, but is set to settle down after Crane proposed with a horse. Yes, you read correctly. A horse. What, he couldn't get down the off-license for a box of chocs and cheap plonk?
Sarah learned how to play polo for the ITV2 reality show The Passions of… Girls Aloud (though according to this show, they're only a quartet, as Nadine clearly had better things to do off in L.A.), through which she developed a love for horses. Quick to exploit this, Crane gifted Harding with the horse as part of his proposal.
"Anyone can buy a diamond ring but what Sarah loves about Tom is that he is so original," quipped a friend of the pair to the Daily Star. "He spent ages trying to find the perfect animal for Sarah to play polo on and he settled on a 16-hands, bay-coloured beauty called Spirit. "He introduced them last week and asked Sarah if she would consider marrying him. She was bowled over and said 'Yes' straight away."
The cynical side of Star Trip wants to think she only said yes to the gift of the horse, but let's wish them both well on this rocky road to love and hope that Sarah doesn't listen to any of Cheryl's marriage advice.
