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!

We are trying to put together an The Saturdays ultimate poll, every song to pick from, you simply vote for your favourite five.

Songs that might have an effect on your life, give you that certain memory, songs that just simply make you smile, or get up and dance, or even shed a tear. Whatever the reason vote for your favourite five songs and you can also enter our prize draw to win some goodies!

Sounds good? We hope so, so head over to our voting page

Please share the link on social media, facebook etc. The more votes we get, the more accurate the poll is. Sadly as of now we’ve not had enough votes to even make the poll worth publishing so please vote and share!!


Rochelle stuns at the NTAs and more!

Hi TeamSats! Hope all is well 🙂

As we all saw coming (with the removal of the mailers and flips) the start of 2015 hasn’t been the most exciting for the group. What the actual future holds for the group is anyone’s guess right now, answers to us @TheSatsCoUk if you know anything – we sure don’t!

Either way the girls continue prepping their own solo projects, Mollie recently completed her photoshoot for the upcoming Spring/Summer range for Oasis. Rochelle continues her own range for Very plus appeared at the NTAs last night, looking stunning in her custom dress (see below!), obviously Una is on The Voice of Ireland – and expecting a little boy in a matter of weeks! Plus obviously Frankie is expecting and Vanessa is also prepping something it seems.

I just hope that you all understand that I’m not going to post news for the sake of news, the lesser news updates you can keep up-to-date by following us on Twitter and Facebook.

Hopefully something will happen sooner rather than later, we are all crossing everything!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our wonderful visitors! We hope you had a great Christmas/New Year period and are ready for the exciting times that 2015 might throw at us!

I usually do an end-of-year sort of review for The Sats, and I still have it (unpublished right now), I might post it, I might not, as some people might see it as being negative, some might see it as being realistic, others might just read it and ignore. I’ll see how I feel in a few days.

But saying that I can’t do a 2015 post without what I expect about 2015. Like a lot of people we are all a bit taken back by the news that the traditional mailer and flip have been cancelled. I sit right on the fence about that, it’s been increasingly obvious that they’ve been struggling for content for these for a long time, so on that side I can see why they’ve been stopped, but obviously this is something that the group has always done since the start so I can appreciate the other side of the argument too.

As for 2015, for the first time in all my years running this site I’m at an impasse. The girls are heavily involved in their own projects right now. As we know Rochelle has seemingly moved all her solo ventures like TV presenting and her Very range to management away from the groups management. The other 4 are seemingly keeping their own interests alongside Fascination for now. Mollie has another Oasis range due out – I presume for Spring/Summer. Una obviously is on The Voice of Ireland, and expecting baby number two. Frankie has the strictly tour coming up, and has recently spoken to the press about how herself and Wayne would like another little buba at some point. Vanessa seems to be loving the holiday life!

Musically – who really knows. We know they keep making the right noises about new music coming soon, and recording and everything but as we know Christmas as come and gone, and we’ve not had any release. Like you all I wouldn’t mind some new music, but I honestly feel we might have a bit of a wait for it.

It’s our SEVENTH birthday in April too! Honestly can’t believe I’ve been doing this for so long!

As always you can contact us at @TheSatsCoUk on twitter, or via our facebook page to air us your own personal views.


Mollie Roll’s Out The Red for the BHF!

As reported previously Mollie is lending her support to the British Heart Foundation’s ‘Roll Out The Red’ 2015 campaign.

Mollie says: “I’m honoured to be hosting the Roll out the Red Ball in aid of the British Heart Foundation. It is such a fantastic charity which is very close to my heart. My grandfather sadly died of heart disease.

“The BHF has already made vital discoveries in the prevention and treatment of heart and circulatory conditions but there is still so much work to be done.

“Guests attending the ball will be raising funds which will go directly into life saving heart research. The evening promises to be one to remember!”

Entertainment on the night will include a performance by a very special guest comedian, music and dancing, as well as an auction packed full of money-can’t-buy experiences and luxury items.

Tickets for the event start from £200, all money goes straight to the British Heart Foundation.
