If only all Saturdays were as beautiful as the one thousands of music fans enjoyed in Portrush at the weekend.

Sexy stunners The Saturdays kept any summertime blues at bay with their naughty flesh-baring ‘navel manoeuvres’ by the seaside.

Whether the weather stayed sunny or not was not of primary importance for the thousands drawn to the north-west for the Live At The Beach festival.

A predominantly youthful crowd made Portrush the capital city for pop, as the East Strand resounded to the sounds of a multitude of music acts including X Factor stars Alexandra Burke and Lloyd Daniels.

But if the audience thought that Alexandra put on a sizzling set for the Bad Boys in the crowd, then the temperature was raised a notch or two with the arrival of pop fans’ favourite day of the week, The Saturdays.

The girls — Una, Molly, Rochelle, Vanessa and Frankie — are Notorious for their sassy stage gear, especially after a recent show romp in super skimpy Daisy Duke shorts.

And they definitely did not disappoint local lads hoping to see them decked out in some sexy costumes last night too.

But that’s not all — we can exclusively reveal that the girls are set to delight Northern Ireland audiences again later this year.

They will perform their first arena show at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena on Sunday, December 18 and tickets will go on sale this Wednesday.

Live At The Beach headliners The Wanted, who met fans before the show at the Hilton Hotel in Belfast, played a surprisingly upbeat set including forthcoming single Glad You Came.

Belfast music fans were able to get in on the pop act too last night with chart-toppers JLS in town for a packed show at the Odyssey Arena.

The boyband flew into Northern Ireland on Friday to join Rory McIlroy at a party at his house to celebrate his US Open win on the eve of their gig. Last night he was in the crowd at the concert with girlfriend Holly Sweeney.

X Factor runner-up Olly Murs got the crowd going first with his cheeky chappie Essex soul boy pop.

But inevitably it was JLS who proved that Everybody’s still In Love with them in the summer of 2011.

Meanwhile, loved-up Marvin Humes of JLS and The Saturdays Rochelle Wiseman enjoyed time together before their respective shows in Belfast and Portrush yesterday.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
