The 'All Fired Up' singer promises to openly discuss her recent illness sometime soon for the benefit of their fans.

The Saturdays' Frankie Sandford has spoken out about her recent medical problems and insists they were nothing to do with substance abuse or an eating disorder.

The 'Notorious' singer spent several months recovering from an unknown illness earlier this year, and promises to discuss what happened to her at some point in the near future.

"I was hospitalised, it wasn't rehab," Frankie confirmed. "It takes a lot of courage to enter facilities to try to beat any addiction or overcome issues, but mine is a medical condition.

"I will talk about it in detail one day soon, for the sake of my fans, as they want to know," Frankie told The Sun. "But I will say it wasn't alcohol, drugs or an eating disorder.

She added: "The dark days are now behind me. My family, friends and boyfriend Wayne [Bridge] have been wonderful."

Frankie returned from her recover in early November to attend rehearsals for the band's 'All Fired Up!' tour and appearing during The Saturdays' performance at the Jingle Bell Ball on Sunday (4th December).
