Vanessa White: 'I though Saturdays fans would hate my solo material'
Vanessa White was worried that The Saturdays fans would hate her solo material.
The 26-year-old singer recently released her debut EP 'Chapter One' and admitted her fears that fans of the girl group, which also features Mollie King, Una Foden, Frankie Bridge and Rochelle Humes, would not be impressed with her solo offering.
She told Wonderland magazine: "I thought they might hate it because it's so different to what I was doing before, but I've been lucky as the response has been really nice and I haven't actually had a bad comment from a Sats fan. So that was quite shocking."
And while the reaction has been positive, Vanessa found it quite daunting even going in to the studio on her own at first.
She explained: "I spent every day, basically, of last year in the studio which was a nice process actually, but it was a bit scary at first because I wasn't really used to going into the studio on my own. So that was a big thing but now I love it.
"I always had that creative fire in my belly, I needed to do it. I still feel like a new artist in a lot of ways because I guess everything that I'm doing now is completely different to what I've done before. So even though I kind of have the experience, it all feels very new to me."
