How old is Frankie Bridge, when did the former Saturdays star marry Wayne and what is the ITV show Cannonball?

FRANKIE Bridge has moved on from music, wowed us all with her dancing on Strictly and is now focusing on her growing  TV presenting career.

She's gone from being a pin-up pop star in The Saturdays to hosting a ITV game show called Cannonball with Freddie Flintoff. Here's all you need to know about Frankie.

Frankie Bridge nee Salford was born on January 14, 1989.

She grew up in Essex with her mum and dad and older sister Victoria.

Determined to be a performer Frankie attended a private dance school after finishing her schoolwork.

She later studied musical arts at a stage school in Romford.

Frankie was a member of S Club Juniors from 2001 until 2005.

The band released hits like One Step Closer, Automatic High and Puppy Love.

They split in 2004 and Frankie joined The Saturdays in 2007.

The girl band have had 13 Top 10 hits and four Top 10 albums before going on hiatus in 2014.

Frankie has had short hair since she joined The Saturdays back in 2007.

In the past few years, she has gone long again thanks to extensions but says she'll probably keep it short.

She said Wayne prefers her hair short adding "the shorter the better".

"Short hair was always my thing, but after I spent all that time in the Saturdays I fancied a change," she said about opting for extensions.

"But then I got bored and I wanted it short again. I feel more ‘me’ when I have short hair. It’s even more high maintenance than extensions though, I don’t wake up and it’s just done.

"But it’s less likely to get grabbed by the kids and end up with yogurt in it."

Frankie was always destined to be famous and back in 2004 she appeared on children's musical TV show I Dream which was set at a performing arts college in Barcelona.

Along with the band Frankie appeared on Hollyoaks Later, invesitgated paranormal activity on Ghosthunting With..and had their own reality show The Saturdays: 24/7.

Frankie competed in the 2014 series of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.

She was partnered with Kevin Clifton and reached the final but lost out to Caroline Flack.

Frankie has hosted Celebs Trolls: We're Coming To Get You on Channel 5 as well as ITV's Cannonball.

During his time on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, Wayne revealed James Corden actually helped get them together back in 2011.

He said: "I was on a night out and James was there. He got her phone and put my number in it.

"And then put her number in my phone. And then we basically texted a little bit, and just ended up going out for dinner."

The couple wed in a gorgeous ceremony in July 2014 and are parents to four-year-old Parker and Carter, two.

Speaking about their wedding, Wayne said: "I was an emotional wreck! I couldn't stop crying."

Cannonball is an entertainment show featuring plucky contestants trying their best against a course of water-based challenges.

Each week 24 contestants will face challenges in a custom-built water park, including tackling a giant swing and a launching themselves cannonball-style at a target.

Crazy tasks include attempting the highest and longest jumps possible off massive water slides in fancy dress.

The show is hosted by two house-hold names, Freddie Flintoff and Frankie while Radzi Chinyanganya, Maya Jama and comedian Ryan Hand will also be on hand to capture the action as the contestants fly or belly flop into the water.
