S Club Juniors were formed in 2001 through a reality TV show, known as S Club Search. The auditions were aired on CBBC. S Club Juniors' appearances was considered a success and consequently 19 Entertainment, the management company that had created S Club 7 and auditioned S Club Juniors, decided they should perform as a support act at all of the venues on the tour. By the end of the tour, S Club Juniors had created a following and, with the encouragement of 19, Polydor Records signed the group. Their first single was called "One Step Closer". The single was promoted by the TV series S Club Junior: The Story and was released in the UK on 22 April 2002 in a chart battle with theSugababes who released their comeback single the same day. A second single was named "Automatic High", filmed in Spain, while S Club 7 began their fourth TV series. Released on 22 July 2002, the single reached number two in the UK charts selling 52,000 copies, and spent eight weeks inside the UK top 75 and sold in excess of 110,000 copies in the UK. Their third single "New Direction" released on 7 October reached number two in the UK charts selling 55,000 copies in the first week. It became their third consecutive top ten hit, selling 130,000 copies in six weeks. The Juniors released their debut album Together on 21 October reaching number five in its first week of sale and selling 40,000 copies. Their fourth single, "Puppy Love/Sleigh Ride", was released on 9 December 2002. The single debuted at number six in the UK charts, and sold 85,000 copies in the UK, spending eight weeks inside the UK Top 40.
The Juniors began work on their second album in January 2003 but Polydor wanted a complete change after high expectations for their debut album, a format with Simon Fuller wanted a massive improvement and there were even plans to axe members after negative reviews. The band joined S Club on their S Club United tour in April 2003 where the announcement came of a name changed to S Club 8 and an upbeat fifth single, "Fool No More". The single released on 30 June reached number four in the UK chart, selling 26,000 copies in its first week and overall 75,000 copies in the UK. A second single, "Sundown", was released in the UK on 29 September 2003 reaching number four in the UK and became their sixth and final top ten hit and selling 37,000 copies in its first week and 80,000 altogether. The album, Sundown, was released on 13 October 2003 to dismal reviews. It reached number 13 in the UK charts falling to 40 in the second week. It sold 60,000 copies in the UK and 315,859 worldwide. A sixth single, "Don't Tell Me You're Sorry", was released in the UK on 29 December 2003 and reached number 11 in the UK, becoming their first single to chart outside the top ten.
The group split in early 2004, but they still went on to I Dream for 19 Entertainment because they had already agreed to do it. Unlike the S Club 7 shows which focused upon the band's fictional exploits, I Dream saw S Club 8 as members of a larger ensemble cast. I Dreamrevolved around the summer school Avalon Heights, run by Professor Toone (played by Christopher Lloyd), where the characters tried to improve on their talents in the performing arts. The show featured many songs and dances: normally two songs per episode.
Since 2007, Wiseman is a member of the girl group The Saturdays, whose other members are Una Healy, Mollie King, Vanessa White, and fellow former-S Club 8 member Frankie Sandford. The band have enjoyed seven top ten hits, and three top ten album hits. The album peaked at number nine on the UK Albums Chart and produced another top ten single, "Ego". The Saturdays released an mini album,Headlines!, on 16 August 2010. The band have sold roughly 2 millions records as of August 2010. After the release of their first studio album, Chasing Lights, which later gained a certification of Platinum in the United Kingdom, they started their first headling tour, The Work Tour. Chasing Lights gained the group four top ten singles and five top forty singles.
In October 2009, the band released their second studio album, Wordshaker, with first single, "Forever Is Over. The song was written by Louis Biancaniello, Sam Watters, James Bourne and produced by The Runaways. The single charted at number two on the UK Official Charts. The single was originally written for American Idol winner, Kelly Clarkson, written by ex-Busted member James Bourne. The song was also wanted by American pop rock artist P!nk. The B-side of the song "I Can't Wait" was written by the band with Hannah Robinsonand producers Ben Macklin, Julian Peake and Richard Stannard. A week later, Wordshaker was released with opening sales of 15,022, where the album peaked at number 9, the same debut at first album, Chasing Lights. The Saturdays appeared in adverts for several products including a brand of deodorant, tampons, mobile phones, an operating system, and hair removal products. In early 2010, the second and last single from Wordshaker was released, "Ego", where it peaked at number nine, in the UK Singles Charts, and number 10 in Ireland. Although the single was the bands, second lowest charting, it later became their second best selling single with the song later achieving a Silver certification.
In summer 2010, the band released their eighth single, "Missing You", where it charted at number three in the UK singles charts, after being tipped to chart a number one during the midweek chart sales. Universal Music said "Missing You" is "bittersweet lyrics are an ode to a lost love, sung over some synth riffs." due for release on 16 August 2010. On 26 June, the music video was premiered on The Saturdays' website. It was shot in Malaga, Spain. The single was performed for the first time an T4 on the Beach 2010 on 4 July 2010, though King was absent from the performance due to an injury. Later the band released their third album, Headlines!, where it had similar success to the lead single from the album, "Missing You" and the album charted at number three in the UK top 40 album charts. Rochelle Wiseman confirmed that the second single from the album would be, "Higher" After Flo Rida beat the group to number one for the second time, the American rapper offered to do a collaboration with the band, after saying, "I don’t know much about The Saturdays but we put smiles on people’s faces when we make music, which counts more than getting number ones." I was later announced that Flo Rida would, in fact, feature on the single. It was later confirmed, by the band's official website that Flo Rida had recorded a new version of the girls' ninth single, "Higher", which Rida's vocals would be featured in it.
