Over the years, there have been frequent jokes about the ‘Strictly curse’, which refers to celebrities and the professional dancers who spark up romances despite already being in other relationships.
However, Molly revealed her parents warned her not to get ‘distracted’ by any boys.
‘I’m only 21, so I’m not looking for a relationship on Strictly. That’s not in the picture right now. I want to focus on my career,’ she said.
The CBBC star also claimed to The Sun that she’s ‘currently single and doesn’t plan on changing it.’
A few years ago, Strictly presenter Claudia Winkleman revealed she doesn’t buy into the curse, telling Digital Spy: ‘I understand, it’s very intense. I don’t believe in the curse, but I think lots of people have come in single and they might have met somebody or had a little romance.’
Molly is the youngest contestant on this year’s show, after the full line-up was revealed on Friday.
Molly has said of her appearance: ‘I’m so excited to be part of Strictly Come Dancing.
