I’m A Celeb’s Frankie Bridge hoping for new West End career after ITV show

With an already successful music career behind her, Frankie Bridge is hoping to lend her talents to the stages of London’s West End after her stint on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!

I’m A Celeb star Frankie Bridge is hoping for a new career on the West End after her stint on the ITV show

Frankie Bridge is hoping her stint on I’m A Celebrity will lead to a new career on stage in ­London’s West End.

The Saturdays singer, 32, would love to take part in a musical theatre production, such as Chicago, when she is finished on the ITV show.

But the Loose Women panellist admits it will be a big “commitment”, so she needs to choose carefully if she receives any offers when her time in Gwrych Castle is over.

Frankie, who has sons Parker, eight, and Carter, six, with former footballer husband Wayne Bridge, said: “I love that now I can choose the jobs I really want to do, or I can have the ­conversations I really want to have.

“I love doing Loose Women, I love writing, but now I get to play around with things and try things.

“I’m not done, I’m only 32, so I feel like there’s still so much left that I want to do. I still want to do musical theatre, that’s something I didn’t do when I was younger, on the West End.

“But I want to find the right one. It’s such a commitment, especially with children, so it would have to be one I really want to do for the first one.”

Asked if she is more of a Chicago or Lion King girl, she replied: “I love Chicago. I know everyone loves Lion King, but…”

The star during last night’s Scary-Oke trial

Millions saw Frankie sing on I’m A Celebrity’s Scary-oke trial on Thursday, in which she and music producer Naughty Boy took turns to drink such as blended fish eyes and pig anus, while the other sang.

But Frankie has been worried in the past about whether she was “vocally enough” during her time in The Saturdays, also made up of Una Healy, Rochelle Humes, Mollie King, and Vanessa White.

When asked if she was being “framed as the Posh Spice” in The Saturdays – in reference to Victoria Beckham not being the main singer in the Spice Girls, she told The Andy Jaye Podcast: “I suppose so, yeah. Not be one of the main singers was a bit like… but the girls that did were insane, and that was fine.

“My favourite thing has always been dancing, so I loved just getting up there and dancing. I did sing, but I realise my role was more about image rather than talent, I suppose.

At first, it hurt. I was like, ‘I thought I was all right.’ But I was just happy to be there.”

Jacqueline Jossa landed a West End role in A Christmas Carol after she was won I’m A Celebrity in 2019.

* I’m A Celeb is on ITV at 9.15pm.
