Frankie Bridge: British pop star prepares for I’m a Celebrity

Written by By Lola Okolosie

Born on December 22, 1987, Frankie Bridge first hit our screens as one fifth of The Saturdays band. She has performed around the world as part of the girl group, which became a global sensation after forming on the 2010 series of ‘The X Factor’ in the UK.

After being propelled to international fame, the band split in 2014 when the other members went their separate ways. This resulted in Bridge performing alongside Marcus Collins and The Wanted’s Siva Kaneswaran at this year’s BRIT Awards, taking place in London.

Two years on, Bridge is embracing new challenges. The singer is set to fly to Australia in December to compete in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! , a reality show which follows celebrities in the Australian outback.

Bridge has also hosted a Saturday morning children’s show called ‘All Star Mr and Mrs,’ on CBBC, one of the UK’s leading children’s channels. In 2016, she made the switch from The Saturdays to a solo career, releasing her first album, ‘A Monster Calls.’

In that time, Bridge has maintained her love of singing and writing songs, most notably for other artists, including The Wanted’s Max George, who featured on her debut single, ‘Dancing on My Own,’ and Who’s the Boss’ Jessie J, who featured on Bridge’s current single, ‘World’s Apart.’
