Sorry for the delay in getting this online, here is Episode 8 of Sweat The Small Stuff, this time featuring Una! The usual warning applies, this is a BBC Three show that airs at 10pm so those of a younger age or sensitive nature might not want to watch the program.
Firstly a huge thanks to everyone who was involved in the meet up at Doncaster this weekend, lots of talk, laughs (drinks) and topped off with a great gig too! We all had a blast that’s for certain. If you where in attendance I’m sure you enjoyed it too as the girls put on another great show! (Lawson weren’t bad either 😉 )
For those asking the girls didn’t perform Gentleman, the first performance of that is expected to be this coming Saturday at Radio 1’s Big Weekend.
Also should add, just in case she reads this, thanks to Vanessa for following us on Twitter last week. We are now followed by both Mollie and Vanessa, so make sure you follow us too on @TheSatsCoUk 🙂
Una took to her blog on Hello to talk about the show being ‘axed’ and confirms that the show only had a 10 episode run anyway, so make of this what you will. I guess ultimately you can spin it both ways ‘being axed’, ‘not renewed’ etc. The media will always be the media!
If you have forgotten (and I hope not!) the Gentleman music video premieres this week, so something to look forward to as the week progresses, they will no doubt ‘tease’ us more as the week progresses.
Those hoping for Season 2 of Chasing The Saturdays, might have to wait longer, its being reported today that the show has been cancelled by E! Reports suggest that viewing figures dropped below 100,000 and that the show was ‘too nice’. Sad news for those who liked the show, where as other people reading this might not be too surprised by this. Hopefully the girls will go back to the USA but try a more traditional route and do tons of promo across radio! (It does work, look at Little Mix, Olly Murs etc. Just needs a bit of planning and travelling!) So fingers crossed for the US fans that they come back soon 🙂
In current news, the girls are currently in France, doing a bit of promo there for ‘What About Us’ if you are a french visitor and have news/media/clips (anything really) then please send to us and we will add it as news (and credit you!) as its impossible for us to keep up to date with EVERYTHING that is going on across the world!
Apparently Frankie doesn’t want to be a ‘fat bride’ – take of that what you will – and the girls performed at the Sony Radio Music Awards the other night, hopefully will get some pictures of of that soon. In baby talk Una has been talking about Ben ‘can’t wait to get me pregnant again’ – maybe we need to rename the Site now to The Saturdays Juniors!
The girls added another summer show yesterday, as they will be playing the Glow at Bluewater shopping centre in Kent on August 10th. We are going down there (as its local to us!) so hopefully see some of you down there. Tickets are on sale now from Ticketmaster, it’s a seated event so if you want a good seat then act now, there’s a good batch still available in the first few rows so be quick and snap those up! (We are in Block A!)
The major news from yesterday seems that despite some ramblings that the girls new album was basically finished, the girls spent yesterday in the recording studio recording with DJ Fresh. With the wide variety of producers that the girls have used, all of whom produce different styles of music, its hard to pinpoint what the final album might actually sound like!
In other news in the annual FHM Top 100 ‘sexiest’ – UK – two of our girls managed to get into the Top 100! Mollie was voted the 18th ‘most sexiest’ followed by Frankie who was voted the ’37th’ most sexiest.
Ben Foden has been talking to ‘Attitude’ magazine and has been talking about how he picked Una after ‘spotting her on television’ – lets hope it was a little more romantic than that 😉
Talking relationships there is a (awful lot) of media interest in Mollie and Jordan, seems a tad over the top to me, but hey thats the media for you. And apparently Mollie’s ‘friend’ has said that she was ‘feeling lonely’ being the only single member … not quite sure what ‘friend’ goes to the media but hey!
For those wanting to hear the girls interview in Ireland on TodayFM, you can listen to it here – thanks to Jennie for the link 🙂
Those awaiting a video for ‘Sweat The Small Stuff’ it should be on the site later this evening 🙂
A few days ago, Vanessa, Una and Frankie popped down to Capital Breakfast London to have a quick chat, kindly Capital have added this to their soundcloud so you can now listen to it if you missed it!
Hey all! Sorry for the lack of updates lately, it’s been rather manic at work (again) and the dreaded Uni deadline is also nibbling at my toes, so no rest for the wicked.
Firstly there are plently of articles around on how Wayne proposed to our Frankie, apparently the dogs where involved (and why not?!) as it wouldn’t be a Saturdays related event without a pet involved somewhere!
Una has been a-blogging again on Hello! about Frankie’s engagement and the girls recent visit to Germany, so make sure you pop over there and give that a read 🙂
A new MTV Show called ‘The Show With Vinny‘ is set to premiere on MTV US on May 3rd, The Saturdays are included on the guestlist for the show, no real further details yet but something to keep an eye on!
Sorry for the quick update, something more detailed to come soon!
Hey all! It’s Monday and for a fair amount of people, including myself, who work in education or attend school or college its back to work (Yes I know some of you did go back last week too!) but we are all back now!
After the huge success of ‘What About Us’ in the UK – which just to mention is still Top 10 after 4 weeks now – which is awesome for the girls – it’s all gone a little quiet (In the UK ..) but the girls are bored of just getting UK success and last week flew over to Germany to tempt those Europeans with some UK girl group action. Thanks to Juliane for spotting this article about the girls in Germany (It’s in German, obviously!) and if any of our other European visitors find news/videos/articles that we can post please mail them over to us via @TheSatsCoUk or e-mail (see the social tab at the top of the site!)
In other news, Rochelle says that Marvin is enjoying her pregnancy too! Also is Mollie feeling the singleton-life too much as she wants a ‘Fairy Tale’ wedding.
As I spoke about the other week, our lovely Una has started up a blog with Hello Magazine! You can read it on the Hello Site rather than reproducing the entire blog here.
Hopefully the release of a certain song called ‘Gentleman’ won’t affect the girls rumoured next single of the similar name (they do sound rather different tho!) but more news as we get it on that front.
Also here’s an Interview that the girls did with Capital FM (East Midlands) a few days ago:
Our girls have been added to a new summer festival taking place over the weekend of August 31st-September 1st at Cofton Park, Birmingham.
Our girls are set to perform on the Sunday – 1st September – which is due to be headlined by Ne-Yo. Other acts on the Sunday include The Wanted, Conor Maynard, Wretch 32 and James Arthur. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am, costing between £35-£55 for a day ticket and £90-95 for a weekend ticket to take in both days.
Also our own Una has become a online blogger for Hello Magazine, of which her first blog will be online this Friday 🙂
The girls finally fly over to mainland Europe today, to the traditional stop of Germany. Hopefully the girls can make a name for theirselves in Germany and then (usually) that success flows over the borders to other places such as Belgium, Holland, Spain, Italy etc. then they will become a known name in Europe, so *fingers crossed* any new UK Tour will become a fully-fledged European one! 🙂
We will bring you all the updates from across Europe as we find it, but if you live in Germany and notice we miss something please send it over to us via e-mail (email@example.com) or via our twitter @TheSatsCoUk and we will post it on the site 🙂
