POPULAR girl band The Saturdays performed their Comic Relief single for an audience of star-struck pupils at The City Technology College.

POPULAR girl band The Saturdays performed their Comic Relief single for an audience of star-struck pupils at The City Technology College.

The British group, who are being tipped as the next Girls Aloud, were visiting the school to help promote their charity release. Students crowded into the school’s drama studio, where the fivesome answered questions and sung a couple of their hits.

Several wanted to know about following in the girl’s footsteps and the band were happy to offer advice to the budding popstars.

Rochelle Wiseman, who was previously a member of teenpop outfit S Club 8, said: “It can be hard getting into the business, there’s so many auditions you have to go through. But there’s also a lot of websites and ways you can get your face out there.”

After the performances were over, some of the CTC’s media students had the chance to interview the band. The Solihull News also caught up with the girls and asked them about their latest venture.

Una Healy, said: “It’s an honour to be asked to do it. Obviously with this single, every single single we sell goes straight to Comic Relief and we’re delighted to be part of that.

“But we also want to see where the money goes and that’s why we’re doing this massive tour of the UK.”

The Saturdays’ Comic Relief single Just Can’t Get Enough is out on March 2. To find out more go to www.rednoseday.com or www.thesaturdays.co.uk.
