The Saturdays - The Saturdays plan hiatus

The Saturdays are planning to go on hiatus.

The 'Up' hitmakers are currently preparing for a greatest hits tour, which starts next month, but once it is complete they will take a break for a ''few months'' to work on individual projects, which include Frankie Sandford - who has 10-month-old son Parker with soccer star husband Wayne Bridge - taking part on TV show 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

A source said: ''Frankie was the BBC's main target for Strictly this year -- they desperately want her sexy girlband glamour and love the fact she is a WAG.

''She almost competed last year but had to pull out when she found out she was pregnant.

''The Saturdays thought it was the perfect time to coincide with an extended holiday.

''They've been working pretty much non-stop for six years and want some time off to focus on all their various solo interests.''

The group - which also includes Vanessa White, Una Foden, Rochelle Humes and Mollie King - are hoping the break will make them more in demand than ever and hope to eventually follow the career path of Take That, who make an album and tour every few years and work on their own projects in between.

The source added to The Sun newspaper: ''They'll end up being in more demand because of the exposure Frankie will get on 'Strictly'.

''The girls want to be like the female Take That -- go off and spend time working on their own but coming back together for big releases and performances.''
