Mollie King has addressed rumours of a romance with her Strictly Come Dancing pro partner AJ Pritchard.

Mollie and her pro partner AJ were romantically linked just days after the launch.


However single Mollie says that there's nothing going on between them - at least not just yet.

She told Huffington Post: “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.”

This Saturday night will see Mollie and AJ dancing a Jive to Good Golly Miss Molly by Little Richard.

"Today's been amazing, I've loved every single minute. I'm quite slow to pick things up but AJ's been amazing," she said from training..


The popstar continued: "I keep having that moment of 'Oh my God I'm doing Strictly'."

AJ said: "We've been trying to get Mollie's personality to come out trough in this dance. She's on the spot quite a few times so she has to do some interesting facial actions and really just let it go a hundred percent."

Mollie added: "There's so much to learn and my mind is just blown but I hope that I'll slowly start to get the hang of it."

Strictly 2017's live shows begin this weekend on BBC One.

Fortunately for Mollie and the other celebs, they can relax a bit this week as no one will be going home.

As always, there will be no results show in the first weekend with all the stars safe from elimination.


However judges Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell and Shirley Ballas will still offer their comments and scores, which carry over to next week.

Strictly Come Dancing starts on Saturday, September 23 starting at 6:25PM.
