Picture Updates


Hey all!

As promised a bit of a mini update, not regarding The Saturdays, well okay a little news update, but more just where I stand, and the website stands as of now.

Firstly the website, there will be a few minor changes and adjustments around the place over the next couple of weeks, most will be in the background and you won’t notice any difference. The main update will be we will be shifting all of your connections to the website over to https – secure connections – this won’t affect you visiting the site, everything will remain as is, it just makes the web a little more safer for everyone!

Those visiting on mobile devices should now see the full size, our new theme automatically adjusts depending on what client you are using so we’ve disabled the full blown mobile theme. If people prefer that for mobile devices please get in contact with us!

I will be updating the gallery shortly, giving it a new look – finally – and updating it with some more recent pictures. I’ll update you all when that has happened too!

As for the group, we are still in the same situation when the tour ended, the group are officially on a break, there is no sign of group music in 2015, as for solo attempts, Mollie categorically denied to our faces on Sunday that she is going solo – make of that what you will.

I will do a proper site update with news shortly, remember to keep in touch use our social media platforms on Twitter @TheSatsCoUk and on Facebook.


Gallery Updates

As promised, I’ve got around to finally adding pictures to the gallery. I’ve added pictures from as recent as yesterday, right back until the early part of the year. Hopefully that will tie you over. You can see the main gallery buy clicking the link at the top, or here, or using the thumbnails on the right. Most of the updates have been added here and here plus there is a throwback to 2008 here, enjoy 🙂

The girls are asking YOU to vote for your favourite all time Saturdays Greatest Hit to form part of a Deluxe Greatest Hits Boxset, which includes the Greatest Hits album, a b-sides album, a DVD of all the girls video and a special song playing lanyard – which the song will appear on – so get voting, you have until Monday!

Also on Monday, the music video for What Are You Waiting For? premieres, but there is a small teaser to tie you over (they will probably release more as the weekend goes on!)


What Are You Waiting For?

TheSatsCoUk-170614-01

Did anyone say new single? ‘What Are You Waiting For’ will be premièring shortly and the news is starting to ramp up! Plus I’m playing catchup from everything I missed at the weekend.

The girls chat about the new single in this weeks flip. ‘What Are You Waiting For‘ is produced by the powerhouse that is Xenomania (All Fired Up, Get Ready, Get Set – need I say anymore?). If that doesn’t get you excited for this, then nothing will. I know there are clips of the song all over the Internet, we’ve had one since we posted the pictures a few weeks ago – sorry all! But thought it was best interest to keep it under wraps. Before judging it wait until it premiere’s (p.s. no we’ve not heard it!)

Lots of Interviews are sprouting up from last weeks media session, I’ll pick out the interesting bits, but please read the full interviews by hitting on the links!

In the Interview with Hit The Floor, Mollie talks about the upcoming tour and greatest hits, as always the best questions come from the fans. Key in this is that there is only expected to be ONE single from the Greatest Hits, and that (sadly) there are no plans to record the upcoming tour.

Vanessa answers some of your questions too over with an Interview with The Sprout

In the girls interview with OK Magazine, Una tells us she spends all her spare time with Aoife-Belle. Look out for our competition to win the exclusive OK Magazine with the girls on the front cover, which is only available from H Samuel stores (with a voucher!)

Mollie also attended a Esquire & DKNY MEN opening party on Sunday. I know I keep saying this but I will get around to updating the gallery and add pictures from these events! 


What About Us .. Tuesday Update

Hey all! It’s Tuesday (Just in case you have forgotten) but today will mean we will get a sales/chart update around mid-morning. As most in the UK will know Ant & Dec’s performance of their 1994 single ‘Let’s Get Ready To Rumble’ has taken iTunes by storm and as of posting this (9.10am) its a good 27% ahead of What About Us on the singles iTunes chart. Obviously this doesn’t count sales of What About Us from remixes, the newly released version on iTunes without Sean Paul and EP sales. I was hoping that Ant & Dec would suffer sales from midweek onwards, but once the UK sees a ‘jokey’ number one everyone jumps on the bandwagon! We will see what the damage is later this morning. Either way its still good for everyone to promote What About Us!

Last night (boohoo) saw the LAST Episode of Chasing The Saturdays air on E! in the USA, Season 2, according to various reports is still being debated upon, but as usual here’s the final analysis after-show video:

Here are a few more pictures of the girls after celebrating their number one single, What About Us! I will hopefully get a gallery update soon with some new HQ pictures, keep an eye on our twitter @TheSatsCoUk for updates to our gallery!


What About Us Chart Update and more!

Update:
OFFICIALLY 
we are NUMBER ONE in the midweeks and by a whopping margin of 34,000. What About Us has sold just over 65,000 copies, number one is basically in the bag, the idea now is to push sales past 100,000. So don’t let up, buy those remixes, buy those CDs from the official store, buy from iTunes and Amazon MP3 and LETS DO THIS!

We start with the news that ‘What About Us’ is currently topping the charts in the early sales. Unofficial news claims the girls where over 30,000 copies ahead of Justin Timberlake in the early sales data, now if this is true we should – in theory – have little to worry about. Obviously those who are checking iTunes data will see that Justin is clawing back at their lead (It’s now under 40%) but at this rate it would take Justin another 24-48 hours to overtake them, which would only leave him a couple of days (at the most) to eat into their lead, which if they have a lead of 30,000+ would seem impossible to overturn.

Obviously none of this is confirmed (yet), Radio 1 do their ‘chart update’ this afternoon which should confirm that the girls are currently heading for the Top, but obviously a lot can happen between now and Saturday, so its important that we keep on buying, pick up a remix (or two) or just buy the song again from Amazon, every little helps! All the purchase links are on the right, simply click and buy! More chart information as we get it 🙂 Plus tune into Radio 1 from 4pm (or just before 4.30, to hear them confirm the girls at the top 😉

If twitter is your thing, then the girls are doing (another) twitter session – is it just me or are these become so common it’s kinda boring? – anyway you can attempt to get a question answered by tweet your question @GlamourMagUK and remember to include the hashtag #GLAMOURTheSats

There’s obviously A LOT of news doing the rounds this week as the girls keep high profile to keep the single sales up! I won’t post everything here but will post a link to a few articles that you can have a read over.

Up first Vanessa, talks about her crushes (and the like), one for the more adventerous to look over.

Also the girls have revealed that their album is finished – yay – but apparently ‘The Chase’ is only a working title and they have yet to decide to on actual title.

EntertainmentWise have a very long interview with Vanessa over on their site, which you can read the entire interview here but a couple of interesting questions:

What was the first album you ever bought?
I think it was probably like Destiny’s Child. The reunion recently was very exciting, they are one of my favourite groups ever!

Who did you have on your wall as your teen crush?
Oh god I was like 15-years-old and there was an R&B band called B2K who I loved so much. I used to listen to literally all of the albums I was like obsessed. It’s so embarrassing. I’ve got pictures at home of my wall, where it was B2K everywhere.

The DailyMail also talks about their interview with Heat Magazine, I’ve added a few pictures below.

I’m sure there is a whole bunch of stuff that I’ve missed, but there is so much going on. The KEY thing here is that ‘What About Us’ is OUT NOW and we won’t be number one if we don’t keep buying and promoting until 11.59pm SATURDAY. As I said even if the girls are 30,000 or so ahead it means nothing until Saturdays so keep going!

 


News Roundup – 25th October 2012

Hey all! Hope everyone is good and well! Sadly it’s not the most exciting time being a The Saturdays fan right now as the girls are all business like in the USA. We know the girls hit the recording studio with Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins the other night. He is the man behind massive tunes such as Telephone by Lady GaGa and Beyonce plus produced many a song for other acts such as Britney Spears, the late Michael Jackson and others. This is an interesting time for the girls who are finally recording with some heavy hitting producers in the US, will these songs bring them US success and their first UK number one? Lets hope so!

The girls favourite UK news source has been posting pictures of them out and about doing business type stuff. Rather than reproducing all the pointless stuff they write, I’ve posted up a few pictures from there for you to view. Hopefully we will have some more concrete news about ‘What About Us’ shortly as we are nearly in November (scary eh? – where has this year gone?!)


This and that plus vote Mollie!

To say its a tad quiet (on the news front) is an understatement right now, it’s not unexpected tho. The media are just publishing pictures of the girls as they wander around LA doing their US thing, all the pictures are being added constantly to our gallery and everytime that is updated you can find out from checking the thumbnails to the right or follow us on Twitter @TheSatsCoUk where you will be notified of the updates the second that they happen. The gallery also has an RSS feed you can subscribe to to see the updates etc. Also as I said before I work in a school so August is my summer holidays so I’ve also been taking a break from the site, luckily it has seemingly coincided with the girls going to LA so not much is being missed, unless you like pictures!

The latest rumblings from the media in the UK is all very uneventful and not really news-site-worthy unless you believe that ‘news’ is the girls posting pictures of themselves on twitter/instagram without make-up on!! I know news is slow, seriously, but journalists are being paid to write this stuff!

If you are bored, and dreading going back to school in a few weeks – or if you are in Scotland I believe you might be back this week! – make sure you vote for Mollie in the 2012 It’s Me Choice Awards. She won last year and the voting this year is a little different as you don’t have to spam twitter, you just need to fill in a form on the Dyslexia Action website. Check out our older post here on how to vote. Remember you can vote more than once and you have to do it by 26th August! 

Hopefully the girls US plans will kick into action soon so we have more exciting stuff to report! Until then keep checking out the gallery for the latest pictures of the girls out and about in the USA!


Una & Ben Wedding in OK!

The day most of us have been waiting for! Ok Magazine have finally published the details and pictures from Una & Ben’s wedding. If you want to see all the pictures and read the story we suggest you pop to your local store and pick up a copy as we don’t really want to upset the publishers by printing it all over the site just yet. So pop down to your local store and pick up a copy!

Yes we are aware that certain international visitors might not be able to actually buy a copy, but in respect to the publishers and not really wanting threatening e-mails from them we have take the decision not to publish the magazine exclusive just yet! OK have published this on their website:

She looked absolutely stunning in her gorgeous dress.

Una Healy and Ben Foden married in their fairy tale wedding with Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Rochelle Wiseman and Vanessa White as bridesmaids.
Sharing her wedding pictures exclusively with OK! Magazine, Una posed in her Claire Pettibone gown with grey camellias layered over lace and pearl silk with moonstone beads.
She teamed it with a boho-syle headpiece from Flo & Percy with a veil.
Chatting exclusively to OK! Magazine, Una said: “I wanted to have a Midsummer Night’s Dream theme because of the time of year and I liked the idea of a fairy tale. You can see the theme on our wedding invites. The flowers of my dress are there.”
She added: “It poured down with rain on the way to the church but the sun came out during the ceremony so The Child Of Prague obviously worked!”
The beautiful ceremony with FULL interview and exclusive pictures is in this week’s OK! Magazine – buy it now!
