Strictly Come Dancing 2017: Mollie King SLAMS ‘fix’ claims and rubbishes formal training
The 30-year-old pop star rubbished her previous dancing training in a recent interview, saying that she “danced like an elephant.”
Speaking in a recent interview The Saturdays star said: “People will assume I’ve had formal dance training but I haven’t.”
She went on to say: “When I was in a ballet class aged three they said I danced like an elephant so I played football instead!”
The star added to The Sun: “I’m petrified I will tumble down the stairs on Saturday or forget the routine.”
Her words come as she was partnered with AJ Pritchard in the Strictly Come Dancing launch show over the weekend.
The pair are now hard at work practicing their first dance routine ahead of the live show in two weeks’ time, which will see them taking to the floor as they battle it out with the other celebrities.
Mollie and AJ, 22, appear to be getting well already after she shared a video of herself with the Strictly Come Dancing professional on social media, the pair looked cosy in the snap as they watched the pre-recorded launch together on Saturday.
She captioned the clip: “So we might just be watching this together. Couldn’t be happier! Let’s do this @aj11ace xx #strictly.”
However, the social media post sent fans of the BBC series into meltdown and sparked romance rumours.
So far Mollie is the second favourite to win this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing with JLS star Aston Merrygold ahead of her in the odds, who is predicted to waltz away with the Glitterball Trophy.
X Factor winner Alexandra Burke is just behind Mollie in third place to be named the champion, according to bookmakers.
