FRANKIE Bridge has revealed that she was in pop band The Saturdays for “her image” as she was mocked during an I'm A Celeb trial.
The former chart-topping singer opened up about her hopes to lead a new career on stage in London's West End following her appearance on the ITV show.

Frankie, 32, has her sights set on a musical theatre production like Chicago when she gets out of the camp in Gwrych Castle, Wales.
The Loose Women panellist revealed to The Mirror that she would consider all her options carefully before making a big “commitment” to the theatre world.
The mother-of-two, who shares her sons Parker, eight, and Carter, six, with former footballer Wayne Bridge, said she was ready to “play around and try new things”.
“I love that now I can choose the jobs I really want to do, or I can have the conversations I really want to have,” she explained.
“Now I get to play around with things and try things. I’m not done, I’m only 32, so I feel like there’s still so much left that I want to do.
“I still want to do musical theatre, that’s something I didn’t do when I was younger, on the West End, but I want to find the right one.”
The singing star added that she was keen to break away from The Saturdays – where her “image” was more important than her “talent”.
“My favourite thing has always been dancing,” she added. “I did sing, but I realise my role was more about image than talent, I suppose.”
It comes after Frankie was mocked over her vocals on one of the latest I'm A Celebrity trials – where celebs had to sing as they drank pints of bug juice.
She and music producer Naughty Boy could be heard murdering a string of pop hits while doing the sickening singing trial.
Host Ant McPartlin couldn't help but remark “not the greatest vocal performance, I have to say,” as Saturdays bandmember Frankie performed Billie Eilish's Bad Guy.
Other tracks included Harry Styles' Watermelon Sugar, Bruno Mars's 24 Carat Magic and Mariah Carey's Fantasy.
When one performed, the other had to chug a glass of blended nasties including pigs anus and frogs legs.
Both stars have made a career creating catchy hit music but viewers expected more vocal ability from the pair and took to social media to complain.
Reflecting on the pair's performance, one fan said: “Frankie struggling with the singing at much as the drinking….”
Another wrote: “So naughty boy is a music producer? Sounds like me singing in the friggin shower.”
