Una on Reebok, Rochelle on AOL

Our Rochelle and Tess Daly will host a new show about motherhood for AOL UK. Being Mum will see the duo meeting either a celebrity or a mother with a surprising story to discuss what being a mum is really like.

“Both Tess and I are really excited to present Being Mum,” Humes said. “As busy mothers ourselves, we understand what it takes to be a mum whilst balancing successful careers, friendships and relationships. And in our series, we’ll go behind the scenes with a range of incredible mothers, with some faces you know and some you won’t, but all with amazing stories to tell about being a modern day mother.”

The shows are expected to air on AOL next year.

Una has been talking about her role on The Voice of Ireland and a rivalry with Rachel Stevens

“I don’t think we’ll come to blows. I come from The Saturdays where we’re more like sisters and I already feel a bond like that starting to form with Rachel. We’re all about girl power,” Una told The Herald.

“I think we both got really into it from really early doors and the first guy who auditioned was brilliant and so it got off to a great start and didn’t really fall from there,” she said.

Una is currently pregnant with her second child but insists it won’t get in the way of the show.

“I’m in a really good stage of pregnancy at the moment, I’ve got lots of energy,” she said. “I’m used to long days and the show is filmed in stints as well. There’s the blind auditions and then there’s nothing again until November and then there’s actually nothing until after the baby is born.

“They get a lot of content in these few days, the blind auditions and the battles and we go away for a few days as well. Plus I’m used to working long hours.”

The Daily Mail also have an article on how Una is staying fit during her second pregnancy. I’ve added the pictures below but you can read the entire article on their site.


Una confirmed as judge on ‘Voice of Ireland’

Seems the girls are continuing to move more and more into different paths, Una continues her TV roles by becoming a Judge on ‘Voice of Ireland’.

The Tipperary mum-of-one will replace Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O’Riordan who departed earlier this year and will join Kian Egan and Bressie as well as a yet to be announced fourth judge.

Una who mum to two-and-a-half-year-old Aoife Belle  is pregnant with her second child by rugby hubby Ben Foden and will commute from London for the TV gig.

Una started out by competing in the Irish Popstars show and has had massive success with The Saturdays since they formed in 2008, selling over 4 million records in the UK and Ireland.

She also took part in Tom Daley’s diving show, Splash, earlier this year.

The Voice of Ireland returns to RTE in March next year by which time Una will have given birth to her second baby.

Singer and judge Jamelia is understood to have departed the show due to the expensive commute from London every week and her replacement, and fourth coach, has yet to be revealed.

Dolores announced she was departing in July this year, saying the commute from her Canadian hometown to Dublin was just too much.

Dolores, who has three children, Dakota, Molly, and Taylor, with hubbie Don Burton, was on the show for just one series and appeared to go down well with viewers.

She was credited with breathing a fresh lease of life into the show, which films in The Helix in DCU, after joining Niall Breslin, Kian Egan, and Jamelia in the rotating red chairs.

Despite admitting to never watching the show before becoming a mentor, the Limerick-born singer made it to the final stages with her talented contestant Kellie Lewis.
