Mollie says: “I’ve spent the last few months working hard in the studio developing my sound and experimenting with my solo music. I’m a huge fan of pop music myself and was thrilled about working with Brian Higgins again on this record. Brian wrote and produced ‘All Fired Up’ which was one of my favourite Saturdays songs; he totally gets pop and I think we’ve collaboratively come up with some amazing records that the fans are going to love hopefully as much as I do!”

The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge is the first celebrity confirmed for the 2016 Strictly Come Dancing UK Tour.
Bridge, a finalist in the 2014 series, was due to appear on this year’s tour but pulled out when she discovered she was pregnant with her second child.
Bridge, 26, said: “I was so disappointed not to be able to perform in this year’s Strictly Tour, as I’d been so looking forward to continuing my Strictly journey. But following the birth of my son in August, I’m thrilled to have been asked to join the 2016 tour.
“It will be great to get my dancing shoes back on and be part of the Strictly family again. Roll on January!”
Bridge was joint runner-up with Simon Webbe to winner Caroline Flack in the 12th series of the competition.
She was partnered with Kevin Clifton, who is currently whirling EastEnders actress Kellie Bright around the dancefloor, but it has not been announced if he will be joining her on the road.
Bridge will join competitors and professional dancers from the present series of Strictly as they attempt to dazzle judges Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, who also directs the tour.
The Great British Bake Off presenter Mel Giedroyc has already been announced as the tour’s new host.
The tour kicks off in Birmingham on January 22 and will play 30 dates across Sheffield Arena, First Direct Arena Leeds, Manchester Arena, Liverpool’s Echo Arena, Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Nottingham’s Capital FM Arena and The SSE Arena in Wembley before a finale at London’s O2 Arena on Valentine’s Day.
Frankie has been talking to OK Magazine about life after Strictly and has revealed that herself and Wayne are looking to increase the size of their family!
Speaking exclusively to OK! magazine, she said: “Strictly was amazing but being reunited with Parker was better, in a completely different way.
“It was something I needed to do and now I’ve done it, I’m back to Mummy duty and that’s the best job!
“What got me through Strictly was being back with Wayne and Parker. I finally have some normality back.”
Frankie, 25, gave birth to son Parker in October 2013 – and she is already looking forward to expanding her brood with husband and former footballer Wayne, 34.
“Now Strictly is over, I’d love to have more children but we’re still enjoying Parker,” the ex-S Club 8 star explained.
“But I would like him to have a brother or sister. Wayne’s desperate to have another and I would like another because Parker isn’t a baby anymore.
“I see other little babies and they’re so little and cute so I would like to at some point and we don’t want to leave it too long, I wouldn’t want any more than three years between them.
“I’d love to have a girl but we’re convinced we’re going to have boys now I’ve had Parker, but I don’t care. I’m quite a tomboy so the only reason I’d want a girl is so I could buy girl stuff – their clothes are so much fun.”

After weeks and weeks of the highest level of dancing our very own Frankie appeared in the final of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
After a fierce and tightly fought final Frankie and her partner Kevin lost out to the hot favourite Caroline Flack.
Everyone here at The Saturdays Fansite is amazed at how well Frankie has done, she’s been a shining star for herself and The Saturdays and we are very proud of her achievement.
