The 'All Fired Up' singer reveals she was an all-Ireland champion swimmer when she was a child.

The Saturdays star Una Healy has confessed that she could have been in contention for the London 2012 Olympic Games had she continued her with her swimming career.

The 'My Heart Takes Over' singer was a champion in the sport back in her home country of Ireland as a youngster before following her musical dreams.

"I was an all-Ireland champion when I was a child," she revealed. "If I had kept it up maybe I would have been able to swim at London 2012, but I fell in love with music."

Her fellow The Saturdays star Mollie King also could have pursued a career in sport as she was part of the United Kingdom ski team at a young age.

Singer Una recently celebrated her wedding to England rugby star Ben Foden at a private ceremony in her hometown back in Ireland.

The 'Notorious' singers girl group band mates were all bridesmaids at the event which was also attended by Zara Phillips and husband Mike Tindall.

The singer also welcomed her first baby earlier this year when daughter Aoife Belle was born.

Meanwhile, Rochelle Wiseman is also currently preparing to marry JLS star Marvin Humes.

The singer recently confessed that the couple would be heading on a late honeymoon due to work commitments.
