Frankie Sanford, of girlband The Saturdays, has announced on Twitter that she won’t be performing at the band’s upcoming gigs.
She Tweeted yesterday: “Hey guys, really sad I won't be there for the next few gigs, as I've been advised not to perform by my doctor until after the baby arrives.”
“But don't worry, I know my other 4 Sats will totally rock it while I'm resting the bump. I'll be back ASAP! X”
Frankie - who hasn’t revealed her due date but is thought to be between six and seven months pregnant - has recently spoken out about her changing body during pregnancy.
"It’s nice, but I wouldn’t say I’m one of those people who feels like they’re glowing. If I wasn’t working and having to do photoshoots and performances, I think I’d enjoy it a bit more," she told Now Magazine.
She continued: “When you’re next to everyone on stage in corsets and you’re in a baggy T-shirt, it’s just awkward and takes some getting used to."
Last month, Frankie shared that she was receiving reflexology treatment for water rentention, saying on Twitter: “It's amazing! The first time in months that I've had ankles and bones in my feet! Water retention is a b***h!”
