'I'm starting from fresh': Mollie King claims her The Saturdays past has done little to train her for Strictly... as she flashes a peek of cleavage in flirty pink bra for Sixties-inspired shoot

She shot to fame as one-fifth of all-singing, all-dancing girl group The Saturdays. 

But Mollie King, 30, revealed her musical background has done little to train her for her upcoming stint in Strictly Come Dancing.

Speaking to 1883 magazine, the singer admitted she feels like she's 'starting from fresh' in the BBC One show and plans to practice for hours on end every day.

The blonde beauty, who sizzled in a series of skimpy retro outfits for the nostalgic Sixties-inspired shoot, opened up about her outlook on Strictly.

'I'm taking part in Strictly Come Dancing, I'm so, so excited. I can't wait to learn all the dances and see who my dance partner is and just throw myself into it,' she said.

'I love dancing. I haven't been trained so I'm starting from fresh. But I'm just gonna put in as many hours in the day as possible and really try to learn as much as I possibly can.'

The star caused quite the stir during the glitzy Strictly Come Dancing launch night on Monday, joking that her twerking moves could put Beyonce to shame.

'Music is my number one love. It seems like the right thing to carry on and do it solo. I've been in the studio for nearly two years now and can't wait to release Hair Down,' she said.

'It's really up-beat, gets you on the dancefloor – you will not be able to help but dance to it, so I can't wait for everyone to hear it.'

She also revealed that combining music and fashion is one of her biggest ambitions.

'I love to be busy, I don't have a lot of time off. Music feels like my first love and fashion is a passion I'd like to have on the other side,' the singer admitted.

'I think they work together quite well. I love to work with stylists and great make-up and hair artists, so I've got a great team around me.'

It comes as Mollie recently opened up about her heartache over her model ex David Gandy, 37, who she dated on and off for five years.

'We were very much in love, but it had come to that point where we felt like we had given this everything but it just wasn't going to work,' she told Fabulous magazine.

'Until both of us had got to that point, I don't think it would have been something we would've been able to walk away from.

Mollie, who was once linked to Prince Harry, added: 'When you're in love with somebody, obviously you're going to go through that heartbreak if you split up. But I'm not in that place any more.'
