Girl group The Saturdays are famous for knocking the socks off their audiences – but there’s one kind of footwear they want you to keep firmly on.
That’s Sport Relief’s charity socks, available at Sainsbury’s for £2.50. And you can see the girls - Mollie King, Una Healy, Rochelle Wiseman, Vanessa White and Frankie Sandford - putting their best foot forward as they model the red-and-white Union Jack-inspired hosiery in the photo above.
Frankie said: “Me and the other girls aren't usually a fan of wearing socks, but we can't get enough of the official Sport Relief Socks from Sainsbury's. They're perfect to wear for anything - from lounging round the house to training for the Sport Relief Mile from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 March.”
I happen to have a pair of the socks, too, but since I have neither the pins (nor the fake tan) The Saturdays have been blessed with, the only public place I’ll be sporting them is in the gym.
A range of programmes linked to Sport Relief are currently airing on TV, culminating in a night of fundraising on Friday 23 March. Stars who have risen to the challenge this year include actor David Walliams, who powered through a 140-mile swim down the Thames, and Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton, who pulled off a 500-mile Antarctic expedition by ski, bike and kite.
