Sarah Harding looks thrilled after debut performance in Ghost - The Musical

Sarah Harding was clearly in fantastic spirits as she emerged after her stage debut.

The former Girls Aloud star has traded pop stardom for the theatre, and the career change certainly agrees with her.

Thursday evening saw her first performance in the new production of Ghost – The Musical, and she was all smiles on her exit from the New Wimbledon Theatre in south-west London.

Keeping it cool and casual, the bubbly blonde donned a star-printed sleeveless top, loose-fitting black trousers and tied a khaki jacket around her waist.

The 34-year-old looked fresh-faced after removing her stage make-up, and just couldn’t stop smiling.

The production is a musical retelling of the hit 1990 film Ghost, which starred Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze.

Sarah takes on the role of Molly, while Hollyoaks actor Andy Moss portrays Sam.

The plot centres on the two lovers, who are attacked as they return to their apartment. Sam is murdered and Molly is left in despair.

But when Sam dies, he becomes caught between the real world and the next, because Molly is in danger and he must try to save her.

Bill Kenwright’s new production follows the original musical version of the film, which premiered in the West End in 2011 before transferring to Broadway.

Following the opening night in Wimbledon, the show is set to tour the UK throughout the autumn.
