Strictly Come Dancing’s Mollie King has revealed there is a downside to wearing the show’s glamorous outfits.

The singer, 30, who is partnered with AJ Pritchard on the BBC One show, performed a foxtrot in a long pink dress on Saturday night.

She told The Mail On Sunday: “You are completely sewn into your dress, so if I need to go to the toilet before going out to dance, it takes an army to get me out of it.

“It happens all the time – I’m always so nervous I need a wee just before I go on.”

The Saturdays’ singer added: “Everything is stitched in, your bra is sewn in, as are your knickers and you’re always in a leotard so thankfully there is no worry about exposing yourself, even if you’re in a short dress.”

The star, who has previously denied rumours that she is in a relationship with her dance partner, collected 27 points on Saturday night’s show.
