It’s been rumoured for years, but finally it has been confirmed that our very own Frankie Bridge will be joining the 2014 Strictly Come Dancing lineup!
“I’m such a huge fan of Strictly! I’ve always wanted to be a part of the show – it looks like so much fun and the costumes are just gorgeous” said Frankie.
“Like so many little girls, I used to take dance lessons when I was in primary school and I really love dancing but this is going to be so different from anything I have done with The Saturdays. I just can’t wait to get started!”.
The 25 year-old is no stranger to the spotlight, having shot to fame at the age of 12 with the young pop group S Club Juniors. By the age of 16, she had amassed six top-ten singles with the group.
In 2007, Frankie successfully auditioned for a new girl-band, The Saturdays. As part of the five-piece girl group she has had four top-ten albums and thirteen top-ten singles, including hits such as “Ego”, “Issues”, “Missing You” and their first number one single, “What About Us”.
Frankie was born in Upminster. She is married to footballer Wayne Bridge and has a baby son called Parker.
Woop! Awesome news, we will be support Frankie when the show returns to the BBC this Autumn!
