The Girls Aloud singer looked sensational at the glitzy National Television Awards, but Sarah Harding flew into a paranoid rage when she assumed Rebekah Vardy was secretly taking photos of her in a moment of crisis.
It all kicked off when Sarah dropped her purse and the contents scattered across the floor, with the star scrambling to retrieve her personal belongings.
When she looked over her shoulder, she saw Rebekah with her phone out and seemingly focused on her, and assumed Jamie Vardy’s wife had been snapping away during the unfortunate mishap.
Sarah marched over to the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star and demanded to know what she was doing.
A source told The Mirror: “Sarah had to scramble around on the floor to pick up all the contents of her purse, and when she looked up, she thought Rebekah was papping her”
The insider went on: “She offered to show her the phone to prove she hadn’t taken any pictures, and demanded an apology once she had proved her innocence.

“A few of their friends had to step in and intervene because they were getting really heated with one another. It caused a huge scene.”
The mother-of-four proved her innocence, and made Sarah apologise. The source added: “She said sorry and they went their separate ways, but they were still both raging about what had happened.”
A spokeswoman for Rebekah, 35, commented: “There is no problem between the two of them – it was just a misunderstanding on Sarah’s part that was swiftly cleared up.”
Sarah, 36, has kept a low profile since winning CBB and splitting from fellow inmate Chad Johnson.
The West End beauty and The Bachelor star sparked up a romance when in the Celebrity Big Brother house – despite Sarah Harding having a boyfriend on the outside world.
Weeks after the show, Sarah confirmed the pair were over – citing long distance as the reason why their relationship drew to a close.
