MOLLIE King is keeping her fans guessing about her relationship with AJ Pritchard saying they're "so close" but insisting they are "really good mates".
The couple were paired together on this year's series of Strictly Come Dancing and rumours quickly circulated that they were dating.
While the pair denied there was any romance between them, they certainly became extremely close during the course of the show.
And earlier this week they were pictured walking arm in arm as they left a party in Liverpool.
Once again Mollie remained coy about the nature of their relationship during a chat with Lorraine Kelly on her ITV morning show.
Lorraine said they must be "great mates" after working on the BBC talent show.
Mollie responded saying "yes, we are" before she admitted the scrutiny that came with the show was "terrifying".
Lorraine said: "I don’t think those (Dancing On Ice) contestants have got a clue what they are letting themselves in for, not just on the ice but all the attention – you got that as well, didn’t you?"
Mollie replied: "Yes, there’s definitely a lot of attention when you’re on one of these shows.
"Obviously romance rumours as well as obviously everything that comes along with it, you know the scrutiny and being judged on national TV, it’s terrifying but it’s the most amazing experience.
"You spend 12 hours a day together and you do just become so close. You have to really trust your partner.
"That would be my tip – just to get along with your partner and to just throw everything at it because it goes so quickly."
Mollie also joked that she could "barely dance on the ground let alone on the ice" as she expressed her admiration for the skating celebs.
