The Saturdays have shown there is mortar them than meets the eye - as they became builders for the day.

Four members of the girl group, including pregnant Una Healy, donned hard hats and hi-vis waistcoats to help out at a new Marie Curie hospice which is being built in Solihull.

The Saturdays have supported the cancer charity since performing at a fundraising concert last year.

The Notorious hitmakers teamed their construction site outfits with daffodil-decorated wellies, in keeping with the charity's emblem.

They have previously gone out with collecting tins for Marie Curie Cancer Care, raising £1,000 between them.

Frankie Sandford was unable to attend as she was unwell.

The new hospice will replace an existing one in Solihull which has served patients for more than 45 years.

It will eventually offer single en-suite rooms with direct access to gardens for each patient, as well as an expanded day therapy unit and will be the base for the charity's nursing service in the West Midlands.
