We’re so excited to have released our latest video…

This week’s been really good – we released the video on VEVO for our single ‘Not Giving Up’ on Wednesday morning which is really exciting!

 

We’re so pleased because fans have been sending us really lovely messages, they’re receiving it really well. I think the video really suits the song – we didn’t want this video to have a particular storyline. The song itself is more about a feeling rather than a story. I really love it, I think it’s a fun dance track!

 

The video is quite edgy for us. We’re all wearing black and silver, with fabrics like PVC and leather. Vanessa and Rochelle had these pencil skirts which weren’t very easy to dance in, but the rest of us were in leggings so it was easy to dance.

I was quite proud as I danced in the highest heels I’ve ever danced in – I did have to take some painkillers to combat my broken toe (it’s still a bit sore). I think heels were necessary because the video is very glamorous, I especially liked the effect from all the wind machines.

In the video I’m on a turntable, which was surprisingly easy to keep my balance. It actually helped that I’d been on Splash recently as I felt quite fearless stepping onto the platform – the only thing that slightly threw me is that it was turning anticlockwise.

 

Originally, Mollie was supposed to be on the table, but my car got stuck in traffic, and I was 3 hours late, so they switched us around! I think these things happen for a reason though, because we’re both so happy with how it all turned out. We can’t imagine doing the video any other way now.

The light tubes were really cool, but we have no idea where they got them from. Frankie thinks she overheard someone saying they were bought in a farm shop! Some people have been saying it makes them think of Darth Vader and Star Wars.

 

We’re all really pleased with how it turned out, hope you love it too!

 

Speak soon,

The Sats had a brilliant time trading stocks and shares for charity

Hey everyone

Hope you’ve had a good weekend. Last week was a busy one for The Saturdays but one of my highlights has to be the ICAP charity trading day we took part in on Tuesday. Getting involved with good causes is one of the many things I love about my job. The ICAP charity day is a brilliant event where the company donates 100% of their revenues and their brokers’ commissions direct to charity for the full day.

The Duchess of Cornwall, Spencer from Made in Chelsea, Brian McFadden and his wife Vogue and Barbara Windsor were all there at the same time as us and Cheryl Cole came in just after we left.

it was so manic with all the phones going and people shouting across at each other but there was a great atmosphere. That kind of environment is totally alien to me and I saw what an incredibly high pressured job it is to be a stock-broker.

Our aim was to raise money for the JLS foundation which is supporting Cancer Research UK at the moment. Lots of different celebrities went in for different charities and I know that last year they raised millions so hopefully we’ll have topped that this year.

The traders really got into the spirit of things wearing fancy dress for the day – we got our photos taken with a few of them. They don’t get paid for the day and they don’t make any profit either. ICAP companies from all over the world took part for 24 hours so there’s lots of potential to raise money.

Poor Ben is recovering from his nasty injury at the moment. We were relieved that he doesn’t have to have surgery but he’s quite uncomfortable a lot of the time and has to sleep with a brace on his leg at the moment.

He’s actually spending more hours training now than he was when he wasn’t injured. He’s going in extra early to see the physiotherapist and continues with all of the training and weights, then goes back to the physiotherapist in the evening. Then he goes to the ‘chirochambers’ which are freezing cold to help reduce the swelling.

It’s all going well though and he’s feeling positive that he’ll be back playing in the New Year. He’s already two weeks through and they said it would be up to three months. Luckily he’s quite a quick healer. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

Speak soon

With love, Una xxx

The Sats get on wonderfully well

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re having a good week and enjoyed the bank holiday weekend.

It’s amazing that Miley Cyrus’s VMA performance was still trending three days after she did it. She certainly got everyone talking and the viewing figures were apparently much higher this year, no doubt in part because of her performance.

Miley is going down a different road now that she’s a grown woman rather than a Disney teenager. Personally, I don’t see why she shouldn’t. She’s her own person and she should be free to express herself. Madonna was always controversial with her outfits and performances and of course Lady Gaga has shocked people in the past. I can see how it might offend some people but personally I really enjoyed it.

That track Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke really makes you want to get up and dance. It’s one of my favourite songs of this year, a real feel good tune. The only bad thing I have to say about it is that it didn’t win an award when it really should have!

When you’re in the public eye, you do get used to things being written about you that aren’t necessarily true. Recently we saw a few stories about The Sats not getting on and although we don’t normally rise to rumours, this one just couldn’t be further from the truth. Our group get on wonderfully well and spent lots of time together at V Festival so I’m not sure where they came from.

After V, we had more shows in Scarborough and Liverpool. We love doing gigs up north and we often say that the further north you go, the louder, bigger and better the crowds are (not to say that they’re bad down south, we love our fans everywhere but there’s definitely a different vibe up north).

One of my most memorable gigs ever was actually in Glasgow, the crowd were just buzzing. It was our first-ever headline show and there were around 3,500 people and I just remember being really taken aback by it all. Seeing all the faces in the crowd, the big screens and feeling the excitement, we all looked at each other at one point and we were like “I can’t believe this is happening!”.

Our Friday night gig was in Scarborough in a really cute and unique venue right next to the beach. It was outdoors and there was a little lake in front of the stage, we’d never played in a place like that before and it’s good to do something different.

On Sunday we had a radio gig with Juice FM in Liverpool which was really fun. As we drove through Liverpool we all said how lovely it was, the buildings were really beautiful. Apparently the shopping is amazing too but unfortunately we didn’t have time to put it to the test.

I love how the Liverpool girls really make an effort for their nights out. That’s often the best part of the night, the getting ready with your friends, trying on different outfits, doing your hair and makeup and catching up with everyone.

Speak to you soon!

Love Una xxxx

When Mollie met Bradley Cooper…

hangover3-sats-2  hangover3-sats-4Hi everyone,

The Sats went to the Hangover 3 premiere in London last week which was a brilliant evening out.

Mollie went up to Bradley Cooper, who stars in the film, and had her photo taken with him. She’s the best at grabbing an opportunity like that when there is one.

We were all a bit jealous that we hadn’t been braver and asked

He said he recognised us which was amazing because he’s such a massive Hollywood star — but I think he might have been told who we were while he was on the red carpet!

My white mini dress was by a designer called Rachel Gilbert. It had really pretty embellished details and I loved wearing it. I had huge heels on which I struggle with sometimes but I was alright on the night! We all accessorised with dazzling Swarovski jewellery.

The Sats got ready together in the Westbury Hotel in Mayfair. Our wonderful ‘glam squad’, Nick Peters and Celena Hancock, were on hand to make sure we were red carpet ready. Our stylist Frank Strachan was there too and made sure we looked the part. We get to try lots of outfits on then we see what looks best together. We like to pick outfits that suit our personal style but we make sure we look like a group too.

I think the Hangover 3 probably appeals more a guy’s sense of humour than a girl’s but it’s definitely worth seeing if you liked the first two.

Aoife and I said goodbye to Ben today because he flew off to Argentina for a three-week tour with the England rugby team. We’re going to miss him lots but we are quite well-adjusted to spending time apart. We make the most of Skype and that makes the distance not feel quite so huge.

Did you like our outfits from the Hangover 3 premiere? I would love to know what you thought.

Thanks for reading!

With love from Una xxx
