Sarah Harding's Dubai escape

Sarah Harding has jetted to Dubai for a girls' holiday following her split from boyfriend Tom Crane.
The Girls Aloud beauty - whose year-long relationship with the DJ ended earlier this month - has flown to a five-star resort in the Middle East with a female friend to get over her heartache.
While Sarah is relaxing on holiday, Tom has been talking about their relationship and admits their busy work schedules were to blame for the separation.
He said in an interview with Closer magazine: "Sarah's been super-busy lately. On tour, she worked every single day for 12 to 15 hours.
"The problem is that I'm working every night DJing, and with her working every day, we never overlap. We have a very good sex life - but I haven't seen her for a month. We both work hard and it's a bit of a downfall as you don't get much time together. The hours are frustrating - that's the bad side of it.
"We don't have that normal 'sit down and discuss the relationship' thing. Sarah is 26 and wants to focus on her career, so she'll work as hard as she can, for as long as she can."
Sources claim Tom was jealous of Sarah's close relationship with backing dancer Jackson Williams, who joined Girls Aloud on their latest tour.
Tom admitted: "I have to see her with all these guys every single day of the week, so it's just all part of it.
"I just have to swallow and accept she's got all these dancers around her."
Just before their split, Sarah spoke of her love for Tom and admitted they discussed marriage and children.
She said: "We have talked about children. Tommy wants loads. More than I think I can pop out."
