This is news about the site itself.
Update: At 4.25 this afternoon, we got a tweet from @UnaTheSats herself! Awesome. Many thanks Una
Never would I have thought from when ideas of this site where nothing but talk in late 2007, from our launch in April 2008 to this present day, I would be sitting here typing a message that was celebrating our 5th year online. Firstly just a quick thanks to the girls, their record label and management who we have development a great relationship over the years, and for their very kind message in the girls official mailer that everyone should have received yesterday in the e-mail! For those who didn’t get it, then check out the – cheeky – message they was left for us below
Again, thank you all for your support, it’s made our work a little easier, and we will continue to be here to support the girls for the foreseeable future
I’ll keep this short and soppy-free but I do feel 5 years does show a lot of work, effort, dedication, and love towards the group. Updates over the past 5 years probably average around 3-4 items a week, obviously videos are very well received and take more effort, and if it wasn’t for the constant love the site gets from the visitors we would have probably stopped a long time ago.
So without sounding like a awarding winning speech, this is how it goes.
Firstly I would like to thank every single person who has worked on this site, from is conception to the present day. There has been an awful lot of you, but you know if you have helped out, in whatever way. You have helped round the site to what it is today in all your own unique ways, so thank you.
Obviously I also extend thanks out to The Saturdays, Una, Frankie, Mollie, Rochelle and Vanessa. We are sure that they poke their nose in now and then and Mollie’s mum also seems to be a fan of the site, so thank you girls for all that you do and long may it continue so that we can! Plus also thanks to the girls label and management who have been very understanding with our requests and have met a few of them, so your help has been priceless.
Last and never least, is you guys and girls. The ones reading this message now, the ones that have been visiting since day 1, or have just visited this weekend due to the mailer mention. Its you who come and look at what we post, reply to us on twitter and facebook, who make all the effort worth it. If we didn’t have any love from the people this site is aimed at, we wouldn’t have made it though five years. So I thank every single one of you, and hope you continue to promote us in your own way to friends and family who need their Saturdays fix.
Thank you one and all! Lets hope Year 6 produces the new album, a new tour and everything we can wish for, the same way Year 5 ended with the girls first UK Number One single!
Thanking you all!

Hey all! Just a notice regarding this weekends television. The girls are set to hit Saturday TV to promote 30 Days – released Sunday. The girls are set to be on:
Saturday: Gaydar Radio – Interview – between 10am-2pm
Saturday: Britain’s Got More Talent – ITV2 – 9.00pm
Sunday: Sunday Brunch – Channel 4 – 10.00am
Update: I think the official site got the dates wrong, Keith Lemon Lemonaid is NEXT Saturday (19th) at 6.15pm according to my TV Guide. My TV Guide only shows them on Sunday Brunch this weekend … so I guess the debut TV performance is on This Morning on Monday? Correct me if I’m wrong here.
I am out this weekend celebrating my girlfriends birthday in Manchester – for those who aren’t aware I live in London – and I will be without access to a computer from Saturday evening until I get home late on Sunday. Videos might have to wait until Monday when the girls are also on This Morning, so Monday might be a bumper video day for everyone who missed the girls or just want to watch it again and again. I’ll keep everyone up-to-date via Twitter and Facebook.
@TheSaturdays Another year has gone by, it’s yet again 7th April which means two things. It’s my sisters birthday and it’s also OUR birthday
Amazingly this website is 4 years old today, we officially launched on 7th April 2008. To put this into a bit of perspective:
14th May 2008: Official site launches (or near to that date anyway!)
27th July 2008: If This Is Love released
For those who have recently joined us, we launched in 2008 after we heard about The Saturdays – even way before the site launched – thanks to our wonderful S Club 8 community. The site was pulled together via the forum community and we launched and well the rest is history. Obviously we wouldn’t be here without YOU – the visitor – who keeps coming back to see what we have to offer and what we have to post. You can always drop us a message via Twitter and Facebook and some other social media places, check out the icons at the top of the page and if you are a member join us – we don’t bite
We also thank the girls of The Saturdays. Mollie has recently followed the site on twitter, we thank them all personally, plus the girls management and their team at Universal/Polydor music. All these members, including the girls, have been ultra supportive of the site throughout the years and we long hope this continues for the lifespan of the site – and the girls of course.
Without the support of the visitors and the girls and the team that surrounds them we wouldn’t be here 4 years on. We thank each and every one of your individually, and hopefully we and the girls will still be here for years to come!
- The Saturdays Fansite Team
I also personally want to thank EVERYONE who has helped this site over the last few years. There are too many to mention but you know who you are, be it the current team or those who helped the site when it first started. Without any of you we wouldn’t be here today. So huge thanks to every single one of you!
Last year we had a tweet from @TheSaturdays it seems this year they’ve put us in the mailer! If you get the weekly e-mail look out for us there!! Thanks @TheSaturdays and their team this is AMAZING
Whilst we have to wait another ’30 Days’ (or something) – or what seems to be – for news on the new Saturdays single, we are having a bit of a shifty around here to bring you the best from The Saturdays Fansite and our just-as-awesome sister site PCDWorld (and Steps fans should also pop over to our other sister sister GenerationSTEPS @GenSTEPS)
After three years of service, we’ve decided that it’s better time spent for Marit to keep on top of PCDWorld – those on you who follow us on twitter will know that Mollie recently followed us on @TheSatsCoUk but our sister site @PCDWorld can say that all ex-members of the Pussycat Dolls, yes including Nicole – are following that twitter account, so any PCD and/or Nicole fans can do no wrong in following @PCDWorld and bookmarking the website! Don’t burst out in floods of tears! Marit isn’t completely leaving the site, she will still be involved in keeping our extensive media pages in check but the day-to-day responsbility of updating the site is now fully my responsbility. We obviously thank Marit for all the help with posting news items and everything else over the years!
Please don’t panic, the site isn’t changing or closing or anything of the kind. I will update as here as normal, Marit will keep the video pages in check and Claire continues to update our gallery the team is still the same, just the responsiblities are changing. We believe ultimately this will give you the best possible The Saturdays & Pussycat Dolls (which is mainly Nicole these days) experience!
We believe in being transparent with our visitors, which is why we have posted this annoucement so you know what is going on.
Hello TeamSats! This post is just to let you know that small changes are happening to the site, from it’s looks, to it’s wiring. Do not be surprised if there are some links that do not work, we will be fixing this shortly. Thank you.
As you might have noticed we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to bring you this wonderful new look to The Saturdays Fansite. As you can tell its a major change from our previous look, and brings us right up to date and ready to support the girls through the new single, album, tour releases and of course the new member of the group from mum-to-be Una.
Huge thanks goes out to our design team over at Pixels Arc for developing and working on this new look, as you will all no doubt agree, the site is looking stunning . Got any features you want to see on the site? Comment and tell us below.
