McFly and The Saturdays both played Burnley concert

Frankie Sandford and boyfriend Wayne Bridge hid out at Burnley FC this weekend to avoid bumping in to her ex Dougie Poynter at the Towneley Live Festival.

The couple were joined by the rest of The Saturdays, who were on the bill for the concert along with Dougie‘s band McFly

‘Organisers arranged transport for the girls so they would arrive at the festival site once McFly had left,’ says a source.

‘They both made it clear that they respect each other’s privacy, so it was more to make sure there wasn’t any unnecessary awkwardness.’

Frankie, 22, and Dougie, 23, broke up in November after dating on-off for 2 years, with the McFly guitarist receiving treatment in The Priory soon after the split.

Fortunately, McFly‘s slot was at 3pm while the girls’ was later, so they simply waited it out in the glamorous surroundings of the football club.

‘They were able to stay out of the way until their stage slot later in the afternoon,’ the source tells the Daily Mirror.

‘They didn’t get to Towneley Park until McFly had headed off to another gig in Manchester.’
