After signing their contract with pop icons Girls Aloud, The Saturdays formed in 2007 under Fascination Records and began touring with them. After stepping into the spotlight, Vanessa White, Una Healey, Frankie Bridge, Rochelle Humes, and Mollie King all shot to superstardom. If This Is Love, which samples Yazoo’s 1982 song Situation, was an instant hit and peaked at No. 8 on the UK Singles Chart. The Saturdays released their debut electro-dance pop album Chasing Lights later that year, and it was re-released in March 2009 with the official Comic Relief single Just Can’t Get Enough, a cover of Depeche Mode’s 1981 classic.

I might have worked with them if I had been friends with them. “If you just call me and say, ‘Do you want to do a feature on this girlband’s or boyband’s song?’ ‘I’m not doing it if I don’t know them from Adam.’ It has nothing to do with you personally. “It’s like when you’re in the school playground and you pull a girl’s hair or punch her on the arm because you want to kiss her,” he joked. That’s how The Saturdays work; it’s all about the sexual tension. “I think Mollie is over-hyped, but I’d take any of them..”
Vаnessа аppeаrs to be а little greаsy, which is а good thing, so mаybe she’ll be the first. “Hopefully our pаths will аll cross together…6 V 1, silly silly boy!”
Rochelle replied. Mаke а pаir!
