I’ve been running fan websites since around 1997, when I launched a Spice Girls website, a few years later I launched a website for the pop-group Steps, which in 1999 became Generation Steps later in the mid 00′s I launched PCDWorld and later The Saturdays Fansite. I’m presently a Network Administrator at a local Infant & Junior school and also studying for my honours degree in Computing at the Open University.

Don’t forget to catch the new video ‘Gentleman’ – check out the post below. The single is released on June 30th, pre-order now using the links on the right
A couple more ‘summer’ shows to look out for, our girls are playing alongside JLS and The Beach Boys (no not a typo) as part of the Hyde Park Concert series, the girls are playing on Sunday 7th July, A Day In The Park. Adult tickets are £35, children get in for £20 and those under 5 don’t pay a penny. Tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am. This is a general admission concert.
The girls are also playing alongside The Wanted, in a gig right at the end of September – brave organisation there we think – down in Brighton. The new SD2 Festival takes place on the last Sunday in September, 29th, at Stanmer Park. Tickets again go on sale tomorrow morning at 9am, tickets cos £37.95. This is a general admission concert.
This is alongside the girls performing at this weekends Radio 1 Big Weekend, and the girls who have two headlining shows in Bluewater, Kent and Scarborough this August.
It’s here, its all for your viewing, it’s the brand new music video from The Saturdays, It’s Gentleman:
Remember to make sure to tell us what you think of it, give us a tweet @TheSatsCoUk or fire a message over on our Facebook page. Gentleman is released at the end of June in the UK, you can pre-order the single NOW from the official Universal Music store and iTunes, check out the links on the site of the page
For (very) obvious reasons todays news is all dominated by the birth of Alaia-Mai Humes yesterday. Almost every media outlet you can imagine has reported the birth, I’ve not come across anything that hasn’t been reported already, although the couple probably (does anyone know) have a deal with one of the magazines for the exclusives in a few weeks. Once again we congratulate the couple on the birth of their daughter
The Doncaster Star has put up a slideshow from the event at the racecourse on Saturday, I’ll try and get a gallery update shortly, I know it’s not had updates for a while, so don’t panic its on the list
Also Swarovski have posted two videos from ‘Behind The Scenes’ of the Gentleman music video, that actual video doesn’t premiere until Thursday, so enjoy this sneak peak!
Sats Baby 2 is here, Alaia-May :)
It’s been confirmed that Rochelle and Marvin Humes are now proud parents to little baby girl Alaia-Mai!
Everyone here at The Saturdays Fansite sends our congratulations to the new couple, and the newest member of The Saturdays family!
The new dad and former JLS singer said the couple are “overjoyed” and revealed “mum is doing great” in a post on Twitter.
He wrote: “This morning we welcomed our baby girl Alaia-Mai Humes.
“Mum is doing great & baby is amazing! We are both overjoyed! Thanks for your love x
Firstly a huge thanks to everyone who was involved in the meet up at Doncaster this weekend, lots of talk, laughs (drinks) and topped off with a great gig too! We all had a blast that’s for certain. If you where in attendance I’m sure you enjoyed it too as the girls put on another great show! (Lawson weren’t bad either )
For those asking the girls didn’t perform Gentleman, the first performance of that is expected to be this coming Saturday at Radio 1′s Big Weekend.
Also should add, just in case she reads this, thanks to Vanessa for following us on Twitter last week. We are now followed by both Mollie and Vanessa, so make sure you follow us too on @TheSatsCoUk
Una took to her blog on Hello to talk about the show being ‘axed’ and confirms that the show only had a 10 episode run anyway, so make of this what you will. I guess ultimately you can spin it both ways ‘being axed’, ‘not renewed’ etc. The media will always be the media!
If you have forgotten (and I hope not!) the Gentleman music video premieres this week, so something to look forward to as the week progresses, they will no doubt ‘tease’ us more as the week progresses.
Well news is still rumbling around about the ‘cancellation’ of Chasing The Saturdays, MTV UK are saying that ‘maybe it isn’t …” but seems to be very choice words coming out of The Saturdays camp …
However, a spokesperson for the band has since stated: “Chasing The Saturdays was originally only commissioned for one season.
“The show has since been picked up by 46 territories around the world. The head of E! is coming into the UK next week to discuss a Christmas special.”
Make of that what you will!
Thanks to @TeamSatsFrance on twitter who have tweeted us the following from the girls recent trip to France! As I said yesterday if there is a news item/media/video/magazine (anything really) from a country you live in of the girls and we miss, fire it over to us and we will add it
Those hoping for Season 2 of Chasing The Saturdays, might have to wait longer, its being reported today that the show has been cancelled by E! Reports suggest that viewing figures dropped below 100,000 and that the show was ‘too nice’. Sad news for those who liked the show, where as other people reading this might not be too surprised by this. Hopefully the girls will go back to the USA but try a more traditional route and do tons of promo across radio! (It does work, look at Little Mix, Olly Murs etc. Just needs a bit of planning and travelling!) So fingers crossed for the US fans that they come back soon
In current news, the girls are currently in France, doing a bit of promo there for ‘What About Us’ if you are a french visitor and have news/media/clips (anything really) then please send to us and we will add it as news (and credit you!) as its impossible for us to keep up to date with EVERYTHING that is going on across the world!
Apparently Frankie doesn’t want to be a ‘fat bride’ – take of that what you will – and the girls performed at the Sony Radio Music Awards the other night, hopefully will get some pictures of of that soon. In baby talk Una has been talking about Ben ‘can’t wait to get me pregnant again’ - maybe we need to rename the Site now to The Saturdays Juniors!
The girls added another summer show yesterday, as they will be playing the Glow at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent on August 10th. We are going down there (as its local to us!) so hopefully see some of you down there. Tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster, it’s a seated event so if you want a good seat then act now, there’s a good batch still available in the first few rows so be quick and snap those up! (We are in Block A!)
