Frankie Sandford: 'I was hospitalised but never went to rehab'
In an exclusive interview with The Sun newspaper, the stunning singer revealed that her absence from the band was indeed for health reasons but stressed that her break wasn't anything to do with "alcohol, drugs or an eating disorder":
"I WAS hospitalised, it wasn't rehab. I don't think there's anything wrong with rehab. It takes a lot of courage to enter facilities to try to beat any addiction or overcome issues, but mine is a medical condition."
"I will talk about it in detail one day soon, for the sake of my fans, as they want to know. But I will say it wasn't alcohol, drugs or an eating disorder. And the dark days are now behind me. My family, friends and boyfriend Wayne (Bridge, the Man City footballer) have been wonderful."
She is now back with the popular girl group on a 'part-time' basis and you can watch The Saturdays perform a Rihanna medley from their Headlines! tour here:
