Chart conquering girl group The Saturdays bring a sprinkling of sassy pop to Thetford Forest tonight. EMMA LEE speaks to singer Rochelle Wiseman.
She may only be 21, but Rochelle Wiseman is already a music business veteran. She cut her teeth as a member of S Club Juniors and is now one fifth of the Saturdays, the five-piece girl group tipped by some as the successors to Girls Aloud, whose natural habitat is the higher reaches of the chart.
Along with Frankie Sandford (also a former S Clubber), Mollie King, Una Healy and Vanessa White they gatecrashed the top 10 with their debut single, the gleaming pop gem If This Is Love, and the follow up single Up followed suit with their first album Chasing Lights going platinum.
Last year they were chosen to record the official Comic Relief single, Just Can’t Get Enough, and their sophomore album, Wordshaker, which spawned more hits including Forever is Over and Ego, was released in the autumn.
Tonight, ahead of the release of their new mini-album Headlines, they’re heading to the forest – Thetford Forest to be precise – for a concert under the stars.
