Strictly Come Dance King! The Saturdays’ Mollie in BBC’s new series
POP star Mollie King’s Saturdays are going to be spent on the dance floor after she was confirmed as this year’s first Strictly Come Dancing contestant.
And The Saturdays singer can’t wait to get stuck in to training — even though she knows it will be ‘hard work’.
The All Fired Up hitmaker, 30, said: ‘I’m a huge Strictly fan, so I can’t actually believe I’m lucky enough to be taking part in it this year.
‘And I can’t wait to get into the sequins too,’ she gushed.
Show bosses are said to have ‘almost’ secured all of the celebrities they want to compete in the new series, and will unveil the line-up over the next few weeks. Comedian Brian Conley, 55, and former X Factor winner Alexandra Burke, 28, are hotly tipped to take part.
The new series will see Shirley Ballas replace Len Goodman as head judge and the troupe of dance pros has also been shaken-up.
