Una Healy took time out from her busy rehearsal schedule for her upcoming tour to be a bridesmaid at her best friend's wedding.

The Saturdays star shared photos of Jojo Bradley's big day at which the 32-year old singer from Tipperary was one of four bridesmaids.

"So excited to be bridesmaid for my bestie this weekend," she said.

Una looked beautiful in a soft lilac floor-length dress alongside Jojo, who wowed in a Kate-Middleton-inspired gown with lace sleeves and veil.

The bride, who is now Mrs Chantler, owns a bespoke furniture upholstery business in Cheshire where Una's husband, rugby star Ben Foden, is from.

The 29-year-old Nottingham Saints player will be a stay-at-home dad by the end of this week when Una begins a UK and Ireland tour with the band.

After announcing their first Greatest Hits compilation and tour, the five-piece were initially forced to deny rumours that they were splitting.

The will play 12 dates across the UK, kicking off in Glasgow on Sunday.

Their one extra Irish date will be on October 17 at Dublin's Olympia.

Una has previously spoken of finding it difficult to balance motherhood and her singing career, and said that being apart from two-year-old daughter Aoife Belle is "the tough side of the business".

"Ben signed for another two years so we definitely can't move to Ireland in the foreseeable future," she said. "I was hoping he might sign for Munster!"
