Mollie King Confirmed for BBC Strictly Come Dancing 2017

Following in Frankie (and Rochelle’s) footsteps, Mollie has been announced as the first celebrity to be taking part in this years Strictly Come Dancing!

Go Mollie! We will be supporting her though-out the show, so keep checking back for more updates from Strictly, videos, how to support and vote for Mollie and more!


Mollie: The Saturdays will ‘definitely’ reunite

Mollie King insists The Saturdays will reunite in “a couple of years”.

The 29-year-old singer and her fellow girl group members, Una Healy, Vanessa White, Rochelle Humes and Frankie Bridge, decided to take a break from the music industry in 2014 but the blonde-haired beauty has revealed the ‘Up’ hitmakers are “definitely” set to re-group in the future.

Speaking exclusively about the band’s future to BANG Showbiz at the Coca-Cola Summer Party, which took place at London’s Kachette on Wednesday night (05.10.17), she said: “Definitely. I think that that will definitely be on the cards in a couple of years.”

However, Mollie has revealed for the moment her and the rest of her bandmates are all “having fun” pursuing their solo ventures, which has seen Una launch her own solo single ‘ Stay My Love’, although they still keep in touch with one another.

She continued: “But at the moment we are just having fun doing our own thing and we still catch up with each other all the time. So maybe in a couple of years.”

Mollie is currently in the midst of recording her debut solo album, which has seen her spend “every single day” in the studio working on her own records.

Speaking about her current projects, she said: “I’m recording every single day at the minute. It is absolutely mental.”

And the star is eager for the release of her own tracks this summer, which she has likened to the feel good vibe of The Saturdays hits, because she feels she has been “trapped in a box” and is ready to be free.

She added: “But it is going to becoming out this summer and I cannot wait. I’m literally like I feel I’ve been trapped in a box and I’m ready to get out. I cannot wait for it to come out. The sound is very pop, it’s going to be something you can dance to and just really feel good; you’d have it on with the girls on a road trip or a good night out. Definitely like The Saturdays in the way they feel good and can dance to. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Mollie King talks Coachella hair & festival style

Mollie recently attended the Coachella festival, she talks about hair, style and more with Hello Fashion Magazine:

Mollie King, former Saturday’s star turned fashion blogger, caught up with Hello! Fashion Monthly at this year’s Coachella Festival. Known for her flawless blonde locks and effortless style, it’s no wonder she fits in with the LA cool crowd. This year she worked with ghd to debut many of the festival hair trends we can expect to see over the course of the summer. Find out how the blonde beauty achieves her own hairstyles, what inspires her boho-esque festival fashion choices and why her motto is “go hard or go home!”

What do you love most about Coachella festival & who do you want to see perform?

I love how Coachella has got such a chilled out and fun vibe, plus the setting is incredible and the sun is always shining. The music acts are always amazing too and the fact that when you walk into the festival and see the iconic Coachella wheel, you know that you’ve arrived. I was most excited to see Lady Gaga! And then DJ Snake and Martin Garrix as well. The line-up was great this year!

Blonde or brunette? Have you ever, or would you ever, go brunette?

I am definitely a blonde! I once tried on one of the girls in the band’s dark extensions in the front of my hair and it looked terrible so I wouldn’t try it again – unless I tried low lights so that it was dark underneath but still light on top. I definitely wouldn’t go dark all over.

Vanessa: ‘I’m calling it a day’

On the eve of our 9th Birthday .. 9 years wow .. Vanessa has spoken to the Metro Newspaper, not sure if this has been taken out of context with the wider picture, but they are reporting.

The 27-year-old insisted she was ‘mentally’ finished as she posed with grey hair to tease new solo music.

‘I don’t think I could go back. I’ve got so much that I want to do. There’s no space mentally for me to go back,’ said Vanessa, posing for Rankin’s Hunger TV to plug her second solo EP, Chapter Two.

‘As time goes on, I know it just wouldn’t feel right for me. This feels natural,’ she added.

 

 

The remaining four pop babes have previously insisted they are still together, despite a four-year gap for some of them to have babies.

Vanessa‘s second EP – Chapter Two – is available to buy/stream from today.

Happy Birthday To Us – 8 Today!

The Saturdays in 2008

Update:
Thanks to @TheSaturdays on twitter for your kind message!

How glamorous! Today is our 8th Birthday, 8 years ago these girls where looking lovely in neon ( Mollie typically in Pink!)

Who would have thought in 2008 that we would still actually be here in 2016? Not sure I did, not sure many here would be thinking the same too! But yet, here we are, 8 years later, 8 years older, and still playing Work at full blast. Things haven’t change too much have they? I mean we have several children in the band now, but apart from that its still the same, right?

Probably not, but we can dream. But here we are, (still) standing right here .. but lets not get too emotional just yet. A few words …

Usual thing every year, thanks to everyone who made this site possible, those at the start whom decided we should do this, to those who helped though the busier times, though to little old me who still clings on with hope in 2016!

Huge thanks to YOU, the visitors, whom still keep visiting in the hope I’ll be able to say NEW SINGLE COMING SOON, but alas it’s not happened (yet), so please keep visiting and hopefully one day.

Finally to the girls themselves, the girls management and label, whom if they didn’t initially complain we where too far ahead of the label 8 years ago, we might not be as known as we are today. I cannot express how grateful I am to the girls theirselves and their management who have been so helpful over the years!

Here’s to the next 12 months, even if it will only contain more EPs from Vanessa and Mollie giving us some 90s pop throwback, whilst Rochelle fights Marvin for the hosting job of The Voice as it moves from the BBC to ITV. (I joke, honestly!)

Either way, keep up to date via Twitter on @TheSatsCoUk or if that doesn’t float your boat hit us up on Facebook or just keep coming back here! We’re not going anywhere until I say so!

All the best, and remember keep living for the weekend by not giving up!

Hello!!

the-saturdays-heroes-concert-in-london-sept-2010-02-2200x1593

No, I’m not singing the Adele song, I don’t have the voice to pull that off! Just thought it’s time for a friendly post to say, hello!!

So what is going on? Well we are approaching our 8th birthday in a little over a month, more on that in April. Eight years … and sadly its never been more quiet really.

Musically … Vanessa is recording a second EP, Una is in the recording studio laying down the music to her upcoming album.

Mollie’s first single could be called ‘Reckless Heart’, as being reported on pop justice. Written by Mollie and Steve Anderson (who is known for his work with Kylie, also worked on ‘Breathe On Me’ by Britney Spears), hopefully we will hear more on this in the coming weeks!

Frankie is seemingly happy with two children for now in a recent magazine interview and Rochelle has seemingly lend some vocals to her husbands Luv Bug venture but we presume she is still working on various TV roles.

Hopefully we’d have more music from the three going solo sooner rather than later, be a nice birthday present if so!

Keep playing The Saturdays, we’re not giving up yet!
