Yearly Archives: 2015


Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to all our visitors! We hope 2015 was a wonderful year for you all and that 2016 can bring new adventures and horizons for you all!

Obviously from a The Saturdays viewpoint, I can’t see the group doing anything in the next 12 months – but would be happily proved wrong! In the next 6 months we’ll probably have something solo from Mollie, and Una and no doubt Vanessa will continue to release music too.

Happy New Year!!


Year Review 2015 . The year of … nothing?

Seasons Greetings from The Saturdays Fansite! We hope everyone has a wonderful time over the next week or so and spends lots of quality time with family!

Year Review:

Officially the last performance from The Saturdays (at time of posting) was 54 odd weeks ago, at Liverpool’s Radio City Christmas Live 2014. 2015 promised little on paper, and little did it deliver. Even before the girls last performance there was a lot of noise of solo careers and the like, all of which have barely materialised this year. Yes we’ve had confirmation that Mollie has signed to a major label, Vanessa has released a couple of tracks and Una keeps recording but we all expect all three to do a major push in 2016. Frankie obviously has the Strictly Tour which starts next month which she missed last year, and Rochelle no doubt has more TV lined up even if the future of the X-Factor is in doubt, maybe she’ll replace her own husband on The Voice when that moves to ITV in 2017 … might be awkward!

What does 2016 bring? Well those expecting a group reunion might well be crying into their Christmas dinners in 365 days time. I just cannot see it. Even if Mollie, Vanessa and Una all push their music in 1Q 2016, as Mollie is with a major label, if her album does get released it might still be 6+ months away in the late Spring/Summer of 2016. Una will be silly not to use The Voice of Ireland to help promote her album in Ireland which starts its run in early January for a few months.

There is obviously a very small core fanbase that actually still care about The Saturdays and their music – which in some ways I do understand. You can argue a couple of poor album releases in regards to promotion and the like have hurt the girls commercially and they are slowly being forgotten about with the likes of Little Mix taking and running far away with the girl band crown.

Is a ‘reunion’ on the cards, never say never, but it might be 2017. With rumours of a Spice Girls reunion planned for 2016 they might not want to go up against that and just be lost in that.

Where does that leave me, and this website? I still have no plans to go anywhere, just yet. It’s not like it’s taking up hours of my time anymore, and if the girls did return the times of me spending hours upon hours of recording off the TV are probably gone too, as I sit here and run everything off my laptop these days. We’re not going anywhere and the twitter is still the best place to catch up on breaking news so please follow @TheSatsCoUK for the latest. I mean the girls official site hasn’t been updated for nearly 10 months!

I need to plan what to update, and when. We might just fall back to updates every 7 days or so to say what has happened and post breaking news (if there is any!) as soon as possible. But I will go into that in the new year. I don’t plan to stop, just scale back until one of the girls goes solo properly and actually confirms what The Saturdays are doing.

Until the new year! All the best!

4 Years ago … All Fired Up Tour 1

thesats_afut_4yearsago

As it’s all still rather quiet … Mollie continues to record, Vanessa churns out different variants of her songs, Una continues to record, whilst Rochelle and Frankie continue with their TV exploits I thought I’d throw us all back to times when we had a group to argue over. 4 years ago today, The Saturdays hit the Liverpool Echo Arena for their All Fired Up Tour, I was in attendance and recorded this video.

So please enjoy this video, and a few others on my channel if you are bored. Or indeed if you are still visiting the site, the demand for the group, and their solo careers has sadly really tapered off over the last few months and I’m not sure how many people truly still care. I get a feeling a lot have wander off to Little Mix these days who continue to add tour date after tour date to their upcoming tour!


Frankie Confronts

Our very own Frankie Bridge was trolled on social media, with some users branding her “fat” while she was pregnant with her first child.
So what drives someone to send abusive messages to strangers? She met someone who trolls people online to ask him.
She also spoke to a national magazine editor about “fat-shaming” articles, and to other victims of trolling about the impact the abuse they received has had.

Mollie hits the Studio, Vanessa sadly doesn’t want to be our lover

Hi All,

Not too much is really happening, still …

Mollie has been in LA recording, seemingly with Producer J Que Smith. Who you might ask? He’s was part of the production team ‘The Clutch’ and has written/produced songs such as Usher’s ‘Yeah!’ Britney Spear’s ‘Radar’ and ‘Freakshow’, Beyonce’s ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ and Ariana Grande ‘Baby I’ … interesting times ahead.

Vanessa has dropped her new song ‘Don’t Wanna Be Your Lover’ via Wonderland Magazine, continuing down the same vibe as Relationship Goals, its a cool laid-back RnB number that probably wouldn’t be too out of place on a few albums recently released, you can listen to it below!

Mollie signs solo record deal with Island

According to The Sun, Mollie has signed a record deal with Island Music and will be releasing her debut solo single in 2016:

The Sun have claimed to have spoken to Mollie about it, quoting Mollie as saying:

“Signing with Island Records is so exciting, as it’s such a creative label with so much history. I’ve had some brilliant meetings with the label and we’re all on the same page about musical direction. I’m now in the studio recording. I’ve got lots of ideas for what I want to achieve. My first solo single will be out next year and I’m already looking forward to what 2016 has in store.”

The newspaper also claim that Una is in talks about her own solo music deal. All this after Vanessa dropped her first solo song a few weeks ago, seemingly the future of The Saturdays is as doubtful as ever.


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.
