All black everything: Sarah Harding, 34, was all smiles as she left the Chiltern Firehouse on Sunday night after attending a meeting in London

Sarah sported a black sheer blouse with matching bedazzled jeans and elegant heels to cap off the look. 

With her slim physique elongated in simple stilettos, the star had an effortless glow about her and even showed off a new edgy cut to her hair.

This is the first time the former Girls Aloud singer has seen since her stint in Ghost The Musical was rocked by illness.

The Ascot-born singer was forced to withdraw from her lead role as Molly halfway through the show at Blackpool's Winter Gardens in October, amidst poor reviews from critics.

Ticket-holders of the show accused the star of 'slurring' and 'stumbling' onstage after taking powerful painkillers for an injury.

After the recent controversy surrounding her performance she said : 'I choose not to engage in the negativity because at the end of the day this is what we’re doing, this is what we love doing, if you want to come and see it, come and see it and see if we can prove you wrong.'  

But she seemed to have brushed off the backlash and is back touring with the musical.

This time, the reviews of her performance with her co-star Andy Moss, are more positive.

'The good news is its two starring performers, Girls Aloud pop star Sarah Harding and former Hollyoaks actor Andy Moss, are much more polished than those nasty social media commentators would have you believe,' a writer from the Manchester Evening news wrote.

'Sarah and Andy said ahead of the show they hoped to and the duo certainly proved they can belt out a song.

'Sarah sings with pure, tender and all-too-real emotion, earning huge applause from the audience on opening night.'

Even Twitter users seem to now be on the singer's side. 

'Can I just say, you made me cry with joy tonight. Ghost The Musical is Brilliant!' one user who attended the Edinburgh show tweeted to Sarah.

The show came to an end on December 4 and Sarah's co-star Andy captioned a picture taken with her co-workers that said: 'What an epic end to the craziest 5 months !!! I'll tell you all about it tomoz !!'
