Sarah Harding is "excited and scared" about her life since splitting from her fiance.

The Girls Aloud star separated from DJ Tom Crane earlier this month after dating him since 2007 and although she admits she is uncertain about her future she is still remaining positive.

When asked how she is feeling about her life at the moment and her approaching 30th birthday, Sarah said: "I'm excited, scared ... I'm ready to take another leap. I'm entering a whole new chapter and it's scary. Hopefully the best is yet to come. I feel a little more at ease with what's going on in my life. I know where my career's at. I know what I want out of life."

The sexy star is keen to pursue other projects away from singing, and is hoping to do more acting following her roles in the two 'St. Trinian's' movies.

Sarah - who is reuniting with her Girls Aloud bandmates for their 10th anniversary next year - added in an interview with LOOK magazine: "I'm just going to carry on as normal, doing what I do. I love to perform and entertain whether that's acting, singing or modelling. I nearly did 'X-Men'. I got called back three times but January Jones got the role. I don't know if I would have been ready for it."

Sarah and Tom reportedly split because of their arguments over having a long-distance relationship. The DJ spent most of the summer in Ibiza working, while the singer stayed at her home in Buckinghamshire, South East England.
