Frankie Sandford gets engaged to Wayne Bridge

by Esme Riley Published on 8 April 2013

We couldn't be more happy for Frankie Sandford! The Saturdays star has announced that she's engaged to Wayne Bridge. We can't wait for another Saturdays wedding - and no doubt another mini Sat will be on its way before too long!

Frankie Sandford has announced that she's engaged to her footballer beau Wayne Bridge.

​The Saturdays singer revealed the news on her Twitter account this afternoon.

She wrote: "Guess what?!!!!" and posted an adorable photo of Wayne kissing her cheek as she holds her left hand up to her mouth - her huge round-cut diamond ring clear to see.

The congratulations soon flooded in for Frankie from her 1,093,172 followers.

​Her bandmates were also quick to send their well-wishes via the social networking site.

Pregnant Rochelle Humes - who married JLS star Marvin Humes last year - wrote: "Big congratulations to @FrankieTheSats and Wayney. He did so well and the ring is to die for in the flesh. Welcome to the wifey club xxx."

And Una Healy - who wed rugby star Ben Foden in 2012 - tweeted: "So Happy for @FrankieTheSats and Wayne who have recently got engaged X."

Vanessa White wrote: "Congrats @FrankieTheSats & Wayne! So happy for you guys. Woooooo xxx."

And Mollie King - who's the band's only single member - tweeted: "@FrankieTheSats I couldn’t be happier for you Frank! Wayne is a very lucky man, you two are truly the perfect match! Bring on the wedding!!!"

​It's great to see such a happy ending for the Essex-born star, who's been dating Wayne, 32, since December 2010.

In early 2012, Frankie revealed that she had received treatment for depression the previous year.

The 24-year-old took time out from the band as she was nursed back to full health.

She told Glamour magazine about the moment her depression started taking hold: "One night, I got upset because Wayne hadn't bought the right yoghurts. I manage to convince myself he didn't know me at all.

​"It set off this spiral of negative thinking - that if I disappeared, it wouldn’t matter to anyone. In fact, it would make everybody’s life easier.

​"I felt that I was worthless, that I was ugly, that I didn’t deserve anything."

​Frankie also revealed that she was constantly worried people would think she was "a horrible person" and “ugly".

​And that when she did finally seek help, she grew concerned her fellow patients would judge her.

​She continued: "I was so nervous, because I was 'Frankie from The Saturdays'. I didn't know if people would be horrible to me and say: 'You're in a successful girl band, you've got this great boyfriend, he's got loads of money.'

​"But nobody judged me. Nobody thought I was weird."
