Mollie King is "worried" that people will expect her to be a better dancer than she is on 'Strictly Come Dancing' because she has been in The Saturdays
Mollie King is "worried" people will expect her to be a better dancer than she is.
The Saturdays singer is set to take to the dancefloor in the autumn as she has joined the line up for 'Strictly Come Dancing' but she insists her girl band background doesn't give her an edge over the other contestants.
She told The Sun's Fabulous magazine: "I'm beyond excited. I've grown up loving watching people dance, so to have the opportunity to do that one-to-one with a professional - you can't buy that.
"I'm not a dancer, I never went to stage school so I don't have that background. I was kicked out of ballet when I was three - the teacher told my mum I had no grace and she was wasting her money!
"The Saturdays was more, 'Pose here, pose there, change formation.' This is a whole different ball game, so I'm worried that people will expect me to be a lot better than I actually am!"
Meanwhile, Mollie is "panicking" about learning the routines on the latin and ballroom show because she usually "takes a little while" to pick up things up, according to her band mate Frankie Bridge.
Frankie said: "I can't wait. I'm not surprised at all. When I was doing it, Kevin sometimes came to work with me and she always wanted to have a go. She'll look amazing in those costumes. She finds it a little bit harder to pick things up and that's what she's panicking about. I was like 'please just enjoy it because it'll be over so soon'. I wish I could do it every year."
