After a two-year hiatus, and hot on the heels of fellow band mates, Una Healy and Vanessa White, ‘The Saturdays’ Mollie King has hit the charts with her own solo material.

Each track on her forth coming album has been written or co-written by Mollie her-self and her debut single is called ‘Back to You’. Many fans have commented on the similarities between the song’s lyrics and Mollie’s relationship with ex-flame, model David Gandy.
