Girl group The Saturdays are planning an extended hiatus once their greatest hits tour finishes next month.
The ladies all have work lined up on individual projects and want to take a “few months” off from performing and recording, according to a source. “They've been working pretty much non-stop for six years and want some time off to focus on all their various solo interests,” said the insider.
Frankie Bridge (formerly Sandford) is no doubt relieved to have some free time planned, as she announced this morning she will be joining the line-up for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. She is the first celebrity revealed for the new season of the show.
The singer “was the BBC's main target for Strictly this year,” said the source. “They desperately want her sexy girlband glamour and love the fact she is a WAG.”
Frankie confirmed the news herself earlier today and said she is dying to get her dancing shoes on. “Like so many little girls, I used to take dance lessons when I was in primary school… but this is going to be so different from anything I have done with The Saturdays. I just can't wait to get started!”
