Mollie King is adamant she has no dancing background and actually moves like an "elephant."
Mollie King "dances like an elephant."
The Saturdays singer came under fire last month when she revealed she'd signed up to compete in this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' because, coming from a band, fans assumed she'd had some dance training - making it unfair on the other competitors - but she's adamant she's terrible at shaking her hips and moving her feet.
Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "People will assume I've had formal dance training but I haven't. When I was in a ballet class aged three they said I danced like an elephant so I played football instead! I'm petrified I will tumble down the stairs on Saturday or forget the routine. I want to stay in it until the half way mark.
"I'm aware it does take over your life but I asked management to do it after seeing Frankie [Bridge, her band mate] on it a few years back and I'm so excited."
But it looks like the 30-year-old beauty will be in for a hard time as she's already sparked rumours she's got a soft spot for her partner AJ Pritchard.
The pair set tongues wagging last week when they took to their social media sites to reveal that they were watching the launch show with one another and eating snacks.
And a few weeks before that, the blonde bombshell - who previously dated David Gandy - was romantic linked to fellow competitor Joe McFadden.
She said recently: "We've already got two 'Strictly...' WhatsApp groups on the go. Somebody sent that pic of me and Joe and said, 'Guys, you didn't tell us there was a romance.' I said, 'Joe, you didn't tell me either, what's happening?' We were in hysterics. It was hilarious that everyone was saying we were flirting.
"When we came off stage we both thought we hadn't done enough and we should have done more moves, but the pictures looked like we are having a really intense conversation. It's nothing, but he is completely lovely."
But Mollie is adamant she isn't looking for love on the show and, instead, wants to pour all of her attention into learning the dance routines and doing the best she can.
