Dressing room demands and famous faces at the Capital FM Summertime Ball

Hi everyone,

I’m off to Ireland today after a really hectic but incredibly exciting week. We had two days of rehearsals leading up the Capital Summertime Ball which took place on Sunday.

The tour rehearsals can be very intense – you’re literally singing and dancing all day. I always sing in dance practice because you have to know that you’re going to be able to do both when you’re up there on stage and not sound breathless. It’s a great opportunity to rehearse your vocals too.



Rehearsing before the performance – I always use the time to practise my vocals too


I always treat our dance rehearsals as a workout – I dress in my gym clothes and use it as my gym substitute!

The actual ball was so much fun from beginning to end. I think we had the smallest dressing room going and there were about 20 of us – hair, makeup, styling, people from our record label, and the dancers – all crammed in there and although it was a bit claustrophobic, I think it’s more fun that way. Will.I.Am and Taylor Swift’s dressing rooms were just next door to us!

We’re not very diva-ish in our dressing room demands – in fact, we’re probably a bit boring! We always share a dressing room – our staples are water, energy drinks, some soft drinks, cheese and biscuits, toothbrushes, mouthwash, deodorant and face wipes.

The show was great – hearing 80,000 people singing What About Us back to us was brilliant – it is one of those moments you need to soak up because they don’t happen all the time!

I bumped into Robbie Williams and his wife Ayda Field in the corridor and they introduced me to their little girl Teddy (Theodora Rose). We had a great chat about our children – when you’ve got kids you instantly have a bond with other parents and lots to talk about.

I managed to see a few of the performances – Justin Timberlake was a favourite. His acoustic set was so impressive – I’m a big fan and he is unbelievably talented.



I couldn’t resist photobombing Mollie’s pic at the Newmarket races on Saturday


So now for some rest and relaxation in Ireland – I haven’t had any time off since Christmas so it’s going to be a blissful week.

Speak to you all soon.

Love from Una xxx
