Mollie King's dance partner AJ Pritchard has hinted he would like to date her after 'Strictly Come Dancing'
AJ Pritchard has hinted he wants a romance with Mollie King.
The 22-year-old professional dancer has been the subject of gossip he's growing closer to his 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner and though he insists nothing has happened between them yet, he won't rule it out.
Asked about the rumours, he said: "We're both single and having a fantastic time training, but I've only known her for two weeks.
"Who knows what will happen You do get very close, and the second dance will be a complete change of moves, that's for sure...
"Training is a dream and we're having so much fun in there."
And AJ admitted he was hoping to be partnered with the Saturdays singer when her involvement in the show was first announced.
He said: "I was so happy [to get Mollie]. She was who I wanted from the beginning, but until you're told who you're dancing with, you never know what's going to happen."
In order to prepare for the programme, AJ has spent hours studying videos of the 30-year-old pop beauty in action.
He told heat magazine: "I knew who she was and I've seen her perform but when I found out I was dancing with her, I went on YouTube and watched every single music video. I also watched the tours she did and the behind-the-scenes clips to see her personality. I was really trying to find out what makes her tick and what we can use in routines. If people at home see her personality, they'll fall in love with her."
Mollie recently quashed the romance rumours, but she did admit she thinks her partner is a "beautiful boy" and she's "lucky" to have him as her partner.
She 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."
