Sarah Harding pulls out of 'Ghost' performance

London, Sep 6 (PTI) Actress Sarah Harding pulled out of her performance of play "Ghost The Musical" due to illness.

"Ghost: The Musical" is Harding's theatre debut, in which she plays Demi Moore's character Molly from the beloved 1990 movie opposite former "Hollyoaks" actor Andy Moss. The 34-year-old actress was diagnosed with an upper respiratory tract infection and has been told to rest by her doctor, reported Female First.

"Sarah went to see the doctor today who diagnosed an upper respiratory tract infection. She's been really pushing herself over the past three weeks, rehearsing solidly for the show and making sure her performance is perfect.

"Fans of Sarah will know that she is a true grafter and that she always pushes herself to the absolute limit, but it's all caught up with her. She still has three months of nightly performances to get through, and she's dead set on giving it her absolute all," her spokesperson said in a statement. 

This comes days after she performed the play at the New Wimbledon Theatre, where her act was heavily criticised.
