Sarah Harding's father - who has spoken to his daughter for 17 years - is worried about her wellbeing
Sarah Harding's estranged father thinks she's on the verge of a "nervous breakdown."
The former Girls Aloud singer sparked concerns for her mental wellbeing earlier this month after she suffered a series of meltdowns in the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house but, although she hasn't spoken to her dad John for 17 years, he is adamant he'll always be there for the blonde beauty if she needs him when things go wrong.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said: "Sarah risks suffering a nervous breakdown - but if that happens I want her to know that I'll always be there for her."
And John, 64, doesn't think Chad Johnson - who Sarah met and fell in love with while they were locked up in the abode - is good for her and will eventually break her heart.
He explained: "[Chad] acted as if he's Sir Lancelot but he's only thinking about himself, not her happiness. He'll use her and then dump her, leaving her once again to pick up the pieces ... Sarah has publicly shown that she is still confused and emotionally suffering after living for years in a bubble in the aftermath of fame.
"Chad isn't what she needs in her life right now. Sadly but inevitably she'll soon discover that he isn't her Mr Right. He is typically brash and she knows nothing about him. He's given nothing away about himself. He entered the house boasting only of his looks, so what does Sarah or anyone else really know about him?"
This isn't the first time John has expressed his concerns for Sarah's wellbeing as he claimed a few weeks ago - while she was still in the house - that she was being "exploited" for ratings and bosses should arrange for her to leave the building.
He said at the time: "Sarah's being cruelly exploited for ratings purposes. It would be in her best interests if Celebrity Big Brother arranged for her to leave - her health is in jeopardy. I can't bear to see my daughter break down and be forced to open her heart once more about her insecurities and vulnerabilities in front of cameras. It's cruel TV."
But, despite her erratic behaviour and meltdowns, Sarah was crowned the winner of the summer series 2017 on Friday (25.08.17) night after winning the public vote.
