The Saturdays Frankie To Be 'Part-Time' Member
Doctors have only permitted Sandford to attend tour rehearsals...
The Saturdayshave confirmed that Frankie Sandford is currently a "part-time" member of the girlband and will only attend tour rehearsals.
Sandford, who has been absent from duties with the All Fired Up group for the past few weeks, will not be helping the girls promote their new album On Your Radar following a stint in a clinic for "unconfirmed reasons" back in October.
A representative for The Saturdays announced that the 22-year old will gradually be getting back to work, telling the Daily Mail: "Frankie is still ill and she's taking her time to recover. Under doctors' orders she is only permitted to attend tour rehearsals."
They added: "She's easing herself back in to things with the group but will be appearing on the tour which starts at the end of this month."
Since Frankie's notable absence from The Saturdays line-up, the band have been plagued with rumours that they are on the verge of breaking up, with member Rochelle Wiseman quashing the reports telling Digital Spy: "No, we're not splitting."
Wiseman added: "She's not very well and you can't even have a flu or a runny nose before people start saying you've left [the group]."
