She recently shot down rumours of a romance with Strictly partner AJ Pritchard, declaring herself single and just ‘really close friends’.
But Strictly Come Dancing contestant Mollie King, 30, clearly has a soft spot for the 23-year-old pro dancer, if her latest comments are anything to go by.
In an exclusive interview with Metro.co.uk, we asked the former girlbander what she makes of fans calling them a ‘sweet couple’, after AJ posted a cosy photo of the pair on Twitter.
Mollie told us: ‘Do you know what? The feedback we’ve had has been so lovely. It’s just been so warm and lovely. It’s nice that they can see how well we’re getting on. Everyone’s been really lovely and people can clearly see that we’re getting along so well.
‘The fact that we spend so much time together every day. The fact that we’re still laughing and we’re not sort of sick of each other is really quite something, I don’t know many people that I could spend 12 hours a day with, six days a week.
‘I feel like the luckiest girl to be training with AJ.’
Aww, too cute. We’re totally shipping #MAJ.
The pair might not have time for any romance this week though, as they’ve got not one but two dances to rehearse for the next episode of Strictly. The pair will be tackling the Quickstep as well as the Paso Doble.
Mollie tells us of learning the Quickstep: ‘Oh my goodness, I feel like it should be called the 100 miles an hour step, literally you feel like you’re just moving so fast. The training’s going really well, we’re doing our usual 12 hours a day. It’s very tiring.’
So how’s it going having to do double the work, for the first time? She says: ‘It’s our first week of learning two dances (so) it’s really intense. We’re trying to sort of split our days.
‘The Quickstep is really feel good. The Paso Doble, you have to be really fierce and strong. It’s a completely different feeling so it’s quite interesting going between the two different dances.’
And despite being in the bottom two twice this series, the pair avoided the dreaded red light after their fantastic Charleston in Blackpool at the weekend. So are they in it to win it now?

Mollie says: ‘You just don’t know when your time’s up. Because AJ and myself have been in the bottom two twice, we’ve had that fear of “oh, this could be over for us.”
‘For us, we just have to take each week as it goes. It’s just so much to think about. It would be a dream come true to win it. It’s been so amazing and it’s really helped to give me some confidence. It’s been an amazing experience.’
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 6.50pm on BBC One.
