Mollie King has admitted she thinks her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner AJ Pritchard is a "beautiful boy."
Mollie King feels "lucky" to be partnered up with AJ Pritchard for this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' because he's a "sweetheart" and a very "beautiful boy."
The Saturdays singer sparked rumours she and the professional dancer, 22, were falling for one another after they watched the launch show together earlier this month, but she's adamant there's no love in the air at the moment because she hardly knows him but she does admire his talent on the dance floor and thinks he's very attractive.
The 30-year-old beauty said: "I think there's always some kind of romance rumour so it didn't surprise me but I hardly even know him well so far, so there's no truth in that. But he's such a sweet heart and obviously he is a beautiful boy so I'm very lucky."
The pair will be doing the jive as their first routine this weekend and Mollie has admitted she's really struggling because it's so fast but she's looking forward to showing off her new moves and has even been dreaming about the dance.
Speaking to HuffPost UK, she explained: "It's so quick, it's so fast [that] my feet are getting tangled up, but yeah, I can't wait to go and do it. Fingers crossed that it goes OK. I can't sleep without jiving in my head."
The blonde babe 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.
She said previously: "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."
