Last year, upon the release of a Greatest Hits album, fans were assured that it wasn’t the end of mega-sucessful pop group The Saturdays.
But it’s now been reported that the glam girl group are going their separate ways, and Tipperary’s Una Foden will launch her own solo material.
Una, as well as bandmembers Mollie King and Vanessa White, will branch out with her own music after eight years in the band, insiders told The Mirror.
Apparently, the girls have all been in the studio in recent weeks, and 33-year-old Una is thought to be the closest to securing a solo record deal thanks to her acoustic vibes.
While Mollie and Vanessa are going for a Britney-pop and R’N’B sound respectively, Una has gone for a more country influence – just like her uncle Declan Nerney.
The mum-of-two recently posted a snap of Declan, one of Ireland’s leading country music stars, visiting her daughter Aoife Belle and son Tadgh, and who knows – perhaps he was also giving some advice to his niece on how to break into the genre!
Despite the reports that the three bandmates are planning careers away from the band, The Saturdays are still signed to Polydor, and a representative claimed the group is still as alive as ever.
“The girls are still a band, but they’re all happy to work on their own solo projects. It means there’s no animosity or frustration between them – it’s a set-up which works really well,” they said.
The Voice of Ireland beauty spent the May bank holiday weekend with her kids Aoife, 3, and Tadhg, three months, in the English countryside while rugby player husband Ben is in America.
