Una Foden says The Saturdays want to tour at the end of 2014

The Saturdays' singer Una Foden has said the band will be back out in force at the end of 2014.

The five - Una, Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White - recently appeared together performing on Strictly Come Dancing.

But Una said that Frankie - mum to new baby Parker - wouldn't be back properly until later next year.

"Parker's only six weeks old, so while Frankie was happy to come back for that performance, she'll only back with us properly in 2014," Una said.

Asked about rumours that the band would soon embark on a tour, she said: "We won't be going out just yet, as we've only just had Frankie back performing with us.

"But we're looking forward to getting back out there in 2014. We've mentioned a couple of shows that we're doing in the summer, and we are definitely touring, but it will be later in the year."

Una was the first of The Saturdays to have a baby - but she's now been joined by Frankie and Rochelle, who had her baby in May.

"We would never sacrifice our personal lives for our careers, or vice versa," Una said, adding: "We're so lucky that we can combine both, and we're very supportive of each other."

The Irish singer said that, at first, the band were worried about individuals doing their own thing but that now they felt free to try new stuff.

"We didn't want to do anything else (individually) too soon in case it looked like we were stepping away from the band, but we've been together now for six years, and it's something we feel comfortable doing alongside the band," she said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
