Is it just me, or does this sound like something out of the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party era?
Tonight, princesses of pop The Saturdays were crowned the *bosses* of friendship at our Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards with Baileys. United through the band’s seven years together, they’ve had five albums, 13 top ten singles, three weddings and three baby arrivals between them, and are true testament to the magic that can be made when girls come together.
On collecting their #FabulousFriends award sponsored by Baileys, a delighted Mollie King told us: “The girls are literally my family. It’s lovely to get an award for our achievements and this is even more special because it’s about the fact we are best friends – and friendships are more important than any success.”
Whether you’re navigating the pop charts or the January sales together, the fundamentals of friendship are the same whether you’re famous or not. There are broken hearts to be mended, milestones to be celebrated and imperative group decisions to be made (e.g. what take-away to order for your girls night in AND exactly what shade of coral nail varnish to go for with that first date manicure?) “We all have our moments but as a five we always feel most confident together. You know you’ve got each other’s back whatever happens,” Frankie says. So from avoiding squabbles to helping each other through hard times, our winners dish out their top secrets on how to keep your girl group on top..
