Frankie confirmed for 2016 Strictly UK Tour

The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge is the first celebrity confirmed for the 2016 Strictly Come Dancing UK Tour.

Bridge, a finalist in the 2014 series, was due to appear on this year’s tour but pulled out when she discovered she was pregnant with her second child.

Bridge, 26, said: “I was so disappointed not to be able to perform in this year’s Strictly Tour, as I’d been so looking forward to continuing my Strictly journey. But following the birth of my son in August, I’m thrilled to have been asked to join the 2016 tour.
“It will be great to get my dancing shoes back on and be part of the Strictly family again. Roll on January!”

Bridge was joint runner-up with Simon Webbe to winner Caroline Flack in the 12th series of the competition.
She was partnered with Kevin Clifton, who is currently whirling EastEnders actress Kellie Bright around the dancefloor, but it has not been announced if he will be joining her on the road.
Bridge will join competitors and professional dancers from the present series of Strictly as they attempt to dazzle judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who also directs the tour.

The Great British Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc has already been announced as the tour’s new host.
The tour kicks off in Birmingham on January 22 and will play 30 dates across Sheffield Arena, First Direct Arena Leeds, Manchester Arena, Liverpool’s Echo Arena, Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena and The SSE Arena in Wembley before a finale at London’s O2 Arena on Valentine’s Day.

‘Relationship Goals’ – Music Video   Recently updated !

Here’s an music video for Vanessa’s buzz single, ‘Relationship Goals’, directed by our very own Aaron Renfree .. last weekend!


We will be making a decision/update/thought about the future of this site in the coming months, as I posted previously keeping up to date with potentially FIVE solo careers is going to take up more time than I have, but I have no intention of throwing the towel in. If you think you can help us out, please e-mail me at with any ideas/suggestions.

Vanessa goes solo, 2016 calendar dropped

Vanessa: “We’re testing the waters a bit and seeing what’s out there,”

Members still continue to deny that The Saturdays are over,  but today was the first sign that a reunion is a long way off. Vanessa has become the first member to release solo music, speaking to Schon Magazine:

“I don’t think being in The Saturdays has held me back, I’ve always been a fan of that type of music anyway. It’s just kind of perfect timing now because I feel like I’ve grown as an artist. If it wasn’t for all the experiences I had with the group I wouldn’t be in this place now, so I’m so really grateful for all of it.”

Vanessa has confirmed everything will heat up in 2016, but to tease fans a new song, ‘Relationship Goals’ has been posted online:

We’ve also had confirmation that The Saturdays 2016 calendar has been cancelled.

Mollie: ‘I’d be lying if I said I was ready for the band to end,’

Our very own Mollie appears in this weeks Notion magazine. She chats about life with David Gandy and how he does a lot of the cooking!

She also mentions The Saturdays – remember them – and although its hardly the most negative of news, it doesn’t spin too much positive vibes either …

‘I’d be lying if I said I was ready for the band to end,’ she tells Notion. ‘We’ll get back in the studio at some point. I’d really like us all to do another tour together.’ 

The chart-topper admits though that she’d like to follow in Rochelle’s footsteps and try something different, admitting that she wouldn’t rule out a spot on The X Factor judging panel.

‘I’d love to be one of those panellists on those shows. I have a lot of opinions about everyone who’s out there,’ she points out, adding that she counts current X Factor judge and former girl-bander Cheryl Fernandez-Versini as one of her biggest inspirations. ‘She’s done so well to transition from Girls Aloud, she’s the ultimate glamorous goddess,’ Mollie gushes.

The new issue of Notion is out this week.

September 2015 …

Hey all, for those who are still visiting here in the hope of something magical and new and exciting.

Sorry I’ve been so quiet, but in all honesty there isn’t much to talk about …

  • Vanessa has signed up with new management to manage her solo career
  • Mollie has signed up with new PR, whom we presume are there to help her with her fashion and solo career (that still isn’t happening, is it Mollie? 😉 )
  • Rochelle will now be gracing our TV every weekend for the next 4 months on the Xtra Factor
  • Una has also confirmed she plans to go solo, but the group haven’t split up …
  • Una has been confirmed to be returning to The Voice of Ireland

I think that basically sums up the last 5 weeks. Lots of mumblings about solo projects, but nothing actually being released and unless something happens in short notice, I don’t think anyone is expecting anything to be happening soon either.

As I said we (as the site) aren’t going anywhere, but on the flip side I won’t be updating the site for every tiny bit that the girls do, like taking the dog for a walk etc. All that will be on our twitter, so make sure you follow us on @TheSatsCoUk

Those expecting new music from The Saturdays, I personally wouldn’t expect anything until mid-late 2016 at the going rate as any solo music seemingly won’t be out until the New Year (if we are lucky), and if there is still a pop music market in late 2016, or even demand for Girl Groups then that is anyone’s guess.

Either way chin up, and if anything does happen I’ll sure bring it to you!

If This Is Love – 7 Today

Cover of "If This Is Love".

Well this has been an epic journey, and if you’ve been here since the start than well done to you as well as to us!

On the 27th July 2008 a certain girl group released their debut single ‘If This Is Love’ and yes this site was around then and you can click on our original post here (The image isn’t loading for some reason tho!)

Obviously this was the start of everything new, the website launched 3 months before the single came out anyway and as I said previously if you’ve been here as long as we have been then give yourself a nice pat on the back!


Onwards and upwards … keep strong #TeamSats!

Wildfire … wildfire

We are alive, promise! It’s just silly time, where members are seemingly saying they aren’t going solo, and then 3 hours later are posting pictures from recording studios … magical all this and its not a case of Black Magic (we hope!)

Anyway, here’s a post that celebrates how decent Wildfire actually is …

Still one of the best parts of the tour too!

Rochelle to host ITV’s Xtra Factor


It’s Official! Our very own Rochelle has been picked to present the ITV2 X-Factor spin-off show the Xtra Factor!

Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes is the new host of The X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor, where she has been partnered with Kiss FM DJ Melvin Odoom.

The pair will be taking over slots once held by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack, who have been promoted to hosts of the main ITV talent show.

This year’s X Factor will see wholesale changes, with Louis Walsh, Mel B and Dermot O’Leary departing.

Simon Cowell and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini are the only faces returning.

The judging panel will be completed by newcomers Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora, who was poached from BBC One’s The Voice.

Coincidentally, Humes’ husband is former JLS singer Marvin Humes, who hosts the BBC’s rival talent show.

The couple are regular stand-in presenters together on ITV’s This Morning, while Rochelle also fronted ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK.

Odoom has worked on Kiss FM’s breakfast show, alongside co-host Rickie Haywood-Williams, as well as presenting The Brit Awards for ITV2.

The Xtra Factor is a companion show to the main weekend broadcasts, and follows the backstage action, as well as chatting with judges and contestants.

Humes said: “I have watched The Xtra Factor for years so I am beyond excited about joining such a brilliant team and getting to work with my old friend Melvin makes it even better.

“I also can’t wait to meet the contestants and be a part of their X Factor experience.”
