Inside Frankie's career

Frankie first found fame as part of the pop group S Club Juniors, after she auditioned for the reality TV competition, S Club Search in 2001.

Speaking about the process on I'm A Celebrity, Frankie recently revealed: "It was just a big open audition for CBBC and me and Rochelle Humes went and everyone was practicing their songs and I hadn’t even decided what I was going to sing.

"We both ended up getting in, which is mad! Rochelle and I used to go to the same dance school when we were nine and it has just kinda gone from there."

The band, who changed their name to S Club 8, released seven singles and two albums, and starred on various TV shows.

After enjoying a successful run as the spin-off band to S Club 7, the group called it quits in 2005 and went their separate ways.

Frankie revealed that after the band split, she worked in a bar for a while and in a shop before her next big break came along.

During Tuesday 23 November's instalment of I'm A Celebrity, she told her fellow campmates: "So S Club Junior finished and I worked in like a bar, and a shop for a little while. I felt like I had peaked already and I was like ‘now what am I supposed to do with the rest of my life?’

"It was so weird. And then I got a call about The Saturdays and that was that! I ended up being lucky to end up being in two successful groups."

Frankie auditioned for girl group The Saturdays in 2007, and was awarded a spot in the band alongside Vanessa White, Mollie King, Rochelle Humes, and Una Healy.

The girlband enjoyed an extremely successful career, topping the charts and touring the world together. But, they haven't performed as a band since 2014, despite never officially splitting.

Since then, Frankie has gone to become a star in her own right, becoming a TV presenter, fashion influencer, and a panellist on popular daytime show Loose Women.

While she has since been focusing on motherhood and television opportunities, Frankie had previously hoped to carve out a solo music career following the end of The Saturdays.

Plans of a solo album were shelved in 2017 after the star decided to focus on motherhood.

Frankie now hosts a podcast Open Mind and has released two books in 2020 and 2021, titled OPEN: Why Asking for Help Can Save Your Life and GROW: Motherhood, Mental Health and Me.

I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! airs every evening at 9pm on ITV.
