The Saturdays lead Trafalgar Square in remembrance 2

They have the looks to stop the traffic — and tomorrow they will have the cause. Girl band The Saturdays will bring Trafalgar Square to a standstill at 11am on November 11 to commemorate the nation’s war dead.

For the first time, all traffic lights around the square will be switched to red at 10.58am, and members of the Armed Forces will hold up signs asking drivers to observe the two-minute silence.

Shortly before the silence, The Saturdays, who have sold two million records and clocked up eight Top 10 hits, will perform their song Here Standing. The event will culminate in the public being invited to scatter poppies in the Square’s fountains.

The band was chosen by the Royal British Legion to be the face of this year’s Poppy Appeal, which is focused on providing lifetime care for the “Afghan generation” of servicemen and women and their families. Britain has lost 343 troops in Afghanistan since entering the war there in 2001. Thousands more have suffered life-changing injuries.

Rochelle Wiseman, Vanessa White, Una Healy, Mollie King and Frankie Sandford, who make up The Saturdays, have already performed a private concert for the soldiers and families of 16 Air Assault Brigade at Colchester Garrison. The brigade, which includes Parachute Regiment battalions, deployed to Afghanistan last month.

The band launched this year’s appeal last month at Colchester, where Help for Heroes charity is building one of four personnel recovery centres with £25 million from the Legion.

Sandford said: “We are so proud to have played such a big role in this year’s appeal. We have the greatest respect for our Armed Forces and feel deeply they should be supported and remembered.”

“We’ve Had A lot Of Luck


The Saturdays have claimed that they have had “a lot of luck” with their music career so far.

The group, who have enjoyed two Top 10 albums Chasing Lights and Wordshaker, insisted that they have also worked hard to get to where they are today.

“Obviously everyone in the entertainment business has a certain amount of luck and we work with really fabulous people – we’ve got a great record label and management,” Una Healy said in an interview with The Mayfair Hotel in London.

“We do work really hard, you can be as good as you want to be but if you don’t want want to get up out of bed no one is going to see you,” Rochelle Wiseman added.

“We never profess to be the best singers, but we really love what we do and make sure we work hard and do everything we can to make sure we’re out there.”

The five-piece confirmed that they plan to promote their music in Asia, Europe and America in the coming year.

Album three will be tough.

The Saturdays have revealed that they will find it “tough” making a third album.

The five-piece insisted that they want to release a new record every year, but are struggling to find the time in their schedule to write music.

“Most bands disappear in the studio for a couple of months and just concentrate on their new album,” the group told the Daily Star.

“We’d love to do that but it’s dead important to still be around. It means album three will be tough because we’d like to take time out this year to focus on it so we can write more of our own tracks.”

The band, who release new single ‘Ego’ today, admitted that they wanted more time to pen their own material on current album Wordshaker.

“We’d planned to do that with Wordshaker but because things were going so well we wanted to get it out quickly,” they said. “We wrote the track called ‘Deeper’ and all of our B-sides, so we’re definitely taking a step in the right direction.”


‘Ego’ Chart Update

‘Ego’ has sprung into the UK Top 40 this week at #35, 3 weeks prior to release. It’s so far peaked at #18 on UK iTunes but has gone down to #30 due to the ‘Xfactor effect’. There is lots of good promotion planned for the single, which I shall be posting soon. It’s chart run so far is #91 – #52 – #35.
