Saturdays get candid on TV as they continue quest for US domination
17 JANUARY 2013
The Saturdays have certainly been working hard to impress potential US fans. After putting on a slick performance at one of the Golden Globes afterparties, the girl group reached out to American audiences with a candid interview on American TV.
The band - Una Healy, Frankie Sandford, Mollie King and Rochelle Humes and Vanessa White - discussed their love lives, saying they were on a mission to find the perfect man for Mollie – the only single member of the group.

Appearing on The Today Show with her colleagues, mum-to-be Rochelle said: "We're trying to find her a prince, but not necessarily a royal one."
She was of course referring to the rumours which circulated last year stating the blonde singer was dating Prince Harry, which Mollie was quick to straighten out. "We're friends and we have friends in common but it's a rumour that just spiralled out of control. The girls are always trying to set me up!"
Irish singer Una – mum to baby Aoife - said how difficult it was being away from her husband Ben Foden while the girls shot their reality show Chasing The Saturdays last summer in Los Angeles.
"We were newlyweds when we came out to LA," she explained. "He's very understanding and his job as a professional rugby player takes him away a lot, so it kind of keeps things fresh."
Meanwhile Rochelle, who will be the second member of the band to become a mummy when she welcomes her first child with JLS singer husband Marvin Humes this year, said she was "sort of finding out as I go along" when it comes to juggling impending motherhood with their busy schedules.
The quintet are across the Pond to launch their reality TV show, which airs on America's E! channel this weekend. Frankie said that though initially phased by being followed by a camera crews, they soon forgot they were being filmed. "When we first started out we were a bit nervous. It's hard to get used to for the first couple of days but you seriously forget they're there," she said.
Mollie added: "It's amazing, we were here last summer for three months and it's so exciting. We've always wanted to break America so we're keeping everything crossed."
