Mollie King has signed up for 'Strictly Come Dancing' and BBC bosses hope she will bring some sex appeal to the show
Mollie King has signed up for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The Saturdays star will be one of the celebrity contestants on the BBC dance competition this year and show bosses are hoping she will add "sex appeal".
A source told The Sun: "Mollie is all signed up and will be this year's 'Strictly' babe.
"She's a talented performer because of all her experience with The Saturdays and her solo career - so she's someone who is very likely to make it to the final rounds.
"Producers loved the sex appeal and performance skills of Daisy Lowe last year and believe Mollie offers the same.
"She's also very well connected and has a lot of celebrity friends who will attend filming each week."
And Mollie, 30, won't have to worry about the so-called 'Strictly' love curse, as she is single following her split from model David Gandy last year.
Mollie dated 37-year-old David on and off for five years - during which time they also romanced other people - but things came to a permanent end last year after a blazing row, believed to be over their future together.
And Mollie opened up about their split in her debut solo single 'Back to You'.
She said previously: "'Back To You' is a very personal song to me.
"A lot of my writing inspiration has come from what I've been through over the last couple of years. The song is about a relationship that you know isn't working but keep going back to them because you love them. It is about a relationship I had that was in the public eye, but I've said everything I want to say about it in the lyrics to the song. Writing the song was actually a cathartic experience, as it allowed me to say everything I was feeling at that time about the situation."
