Towneley Live

The Saturdays hide at Burnley FC

I don’t usually post stories like this but found this a little funny!

The things those girls in The Saturdays will do to help a mate – even hiding out in a sweaty footballers’ changing room for FIVE hours…

And it was all to make sure bandmate Frankie Sandford didn’t bump into her ex, Dougie Poynter.

The Saturdays, whose single All Fired Up is out next month, were playing on the same bill as McFly at the Towneley Live festival in Burnley at the weekend.

To avoid any awkward encounters between ex-lovers Frankie, 22, and Dougie, the girls hid out at nearby Burnley FC – and made sure that McFly had flown the coop by the time they showed up at the festival site.

My source tells me: “Organisers arranged transport for the girls so they would arrive at the festival site once McFly had left – to make sure the pair didn’t have to bump into each other.

“They both made it clear that they respect each other’s privacy, so it was more to make sure there wasn’t any unnecessary awkwardness.

“Fortunately, McFly were first on the bill at 3pm, so the girls were able to stay out of the way until their stage slot later in the afternoon.

“They didn’t get to Towneley Park until McFly had headed off to another gig in Doncaster.”
