Frankie Bridge


Big Weekend, Frankie goes shopping

Hey all! Hope those in the UK enjoyed the long weekend, all back to work today, in which – in typical UK style – seems to be the last nice weather day for a few days!

As we all sit and wait to hear when Gentleman will get its UK radio premiere, the girls have been added to this years ‘BBC Radio 1’ big weekend. The girls are set to perform on the Saturday (of course!) , this year the event takes place in Derry, Londonderry between 24th-26th May. The event has no tickets left, as the majorty of tickets are ballotted to local residents. But don’t panic the entire weekend is going to be shown across the BBC, on TV, radio and of course online. We will also have the girls performances on the site too 🙂

Below I’ve added some pictures from the news of her shopping for wedding dresses the other day!


Frankie to ‘return soon’

We don’t have any ‘additional information’ that we can really share about this, but to keep everyone up-to-date the groups spokesperson has confirmed that Frankie will return to the group as soon as she has recovered. The group’s spokesperson has been reported in the media as saying:

“She will be back with The Saturdays soon, when she is fully recovered.”

We know a lot of fans are worried about the constant speculation about the group splitting and Frankie not returning to the group etc. This is all media talk, please don’t get too upset and worried about it. As soon as we hear something we can officially report we will do so as we don’t really want to get into the habit of sharing gossip and unconfirmed reports.

Rochelle Wiseman told Digital Spy: “No, we’re not splitting. Frankie’s not very well and you can’t even have a flu or a runny nose before people start saying you’ve left the group.”

Mollie King added: “The thing is, as soon as you’ve been around for a certain amount of time those rumours are always going to start.”

Una Healy concluded: “In any other job if somebody had a few days when they were sick, nobody would say they’ve left. What are you supposed to do? You can’t come to work if you’re ill.”


The girls set for some TV appearances

@TheSaturdays are due on ITV1’s show This Morning today, according to their site they’re first on for a chat at 11.40am and then for a performance at 12.20pm. We’ll try and pop this up on the site as well as soon as we can 🙂 They’re also due on for some more promo this week and next week:
04/09 BBC2-Something For The Weekend (Interview) @ 10am
05/09 ITV1-Alan Titchmarsh (Performance) @ 3pm
10/09 Ch4-Super Saturday (Performance) @ 11am and 9pm

For now, you can enjoy the 3 times before that the girls were on This Morning: to promote “Up” – sadly without Frankie cos at the time her appendix had just been taken out! – “Forever Is Over” and “Missing You”.

Site Updates and more

Firstly, again, happy birthday to @FrankieTheSats 🙂

Secondly a boring type of post to bring everyone up to date on what is going on around here. As some of you might have noticed we are having a 2011 clean. The side bar to the right has been rejigged a bit – and a few more rejigging will occur throughout this weekend, hopefully making your experience a little bit better 🙂

Secondly we are re-jigging the site around. The About Us section has already seen a facelift, we are also actively seeking sites who want to be linked back to us. These can be small personal blog sites or tumblr accounts that people work hard on 🙂 We are (also) accepting Elite affiliates. If you need convincing we are the highest ranked Saturdays fansite on Google UK Search, we’ve been online since March 2008, and as you know we run competitions in association with the group, their record label and their management. The site has been lacking links to other sites that work as hard as we do, so this is something I am putting right now 🙂 If you are interested in sharing a link, or top affiliates check the link on the right hand side, or drop us an e-mail on the.saturdays@hotmail.com and we can discuss it further 🙂

I run another site and the fighting between sites is something I hate, we are all online and are all sharing the common purpose of promoting the group, we need to be together in supporting the group, not fighting against each other, remember its all #teamsats 🙂

We will also be launching updated sections over the coming week, I’ll keep everyone updated on these and and when they are ready 🙂

Reminder that you only have a few days left to enter the Superfan competition. This is seperate to the facebook competition remember, and entries MUST be in by the 19th January
