We report the detection of WASP-35b, a planet transiting a metal-poor ([Fe/H] = -0.15) star in the Southern hemisphere, WASP-48b, an inflated planet which may have spun-up its slightly evolved host star of 1.75 R_sun in the Northern hemisphere, and the independent discovery of HAT-P-30b / WASP-51b, a new planet in the Northern hemisphere. Using WASP, RISE, FTS and TRAPPIST photometry, with CORALIE, SOPHIE and NOT spectroscopy, we determine that WASP-35b has a mass of 0.72 ±0.06 M_J and radius of 1.32 ±0.03 R_J, and orbits with a period of 3.16 days, WASP-48b has a mass of 0.98 ±0.09 M_J, radius of 1.67 ±0.08 R_J and orbits in 2.14 days, while WASP-51b, with an orbital period of 2.81 days, is found to have a mass of 0.76 ±0.05 M_J and radius of 1.42 ±0.04 R_J, agreeing with values of 0.71 ±0.03 M_J and 1.34 ±0.07 R_J reported for HAT-P-30b.
