Pop princesses Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White are set to add some sparkle to the University of Hertfordshire Students’ Union Flirt Christmas Ball.

They will be appearing at the Forum on Friday, December 18 – the day before St Albans hardcore rockers Enter Shikari also play a festive homecoming gig at the College Lane venue.

The Saturdays have just released their second album Wordshaker and had four top 10 hits from their debut Chasing Lights, including Issues, Up and Comic Relief single Just Can’t Get Enough, a cover of the Depeche Mode classic.

“We’re very excited to have The Saturdays coming here,” said Rebecca Hobbs, the UHSU’s director of marketing.

The Saturdays is a student only gig, so tickets aren’t on sale to the general public.

But look out for a special Christmas competition in the Welwyn Hatfield Times next month for our readers to win two pairs of tickets to see The Saturdays at the Forum.


Saturdays want to take Subo Shopping

SEXY girlband The Saturdays want to give Susan Boyle a makeover – and last night offered to take her SHOPPING.

The chart-topping girls – who were at Glasgow’s Oran Mor venue – are dying to glam up the West Lothian star.

They were performing at Galaxy FM’s glitzy first birthday party.

They joined a star-studded line-up which included Taio Cruz, Pixie Lott and Mobo winners N-Dubz.

But the girls – who belted out hits I Just Can’t Get Enough and Issues – were more concerned about SuBo.

Saturdays’ babe Vanessa White, 20, said: “Susan could definitely hang out with us, we’d love to take her shopping. I know she’s back in Scotland after being in America, so I was hoping she’d call us to take her out.”

Taio, 24, got the party started with a short set which included new single No Other One.

He said: “I wish I could sing a lot more songs as this is a great party but they’re making me go.”

Hip hop stars N-Dubz made the bash after playing the city’s SECC, even though rapper Fazer had a cold. The 22-year-old said: “There is no alcohol for me tonight – that would mess me up even more.

“It’s a big enough challenge playing two gigs but I’ve taken some paracetamol.”

Fazer – and bandmates Tulisa and Dappy – have a soft spot for the city, after bagging two Mobos in September.

He added: “To win Best Album at the Mobos was special. We worked so hard and then Best Act was the icing on the cake with a cherry – and to do that in Glasgow means we’ll always remember the city.”

Meanwhile, Pixie Lott jetted into the bash from Los Angeles and sparkled in silver hot-pants.

The 18-year-old performed three songs – including Mama Do – and was flanked by a pair of gorgeous dancers.
