Mollie King wants fairytale romance

The Saturdays star Mollie King has revealed seeing her parents split up as a child has made her determined to find a fairytale romance of her own.
The 25-year-old singer - who split from male model David Gandy last February after nine months of dating - is the only single member of the girlband.
Mollie told OK! magazine: "I want the fairytale and I'm not going to settle for anything less. Everyone thinks I must come from the perfect family because I'm so upbeat and positive about love. But I'm not, my parents split when I was eight.
"Seeing my parents makes me realise that life is not a fairytale. But I still want mine to be as close to one as I can get."
And Mollie has already had her own share of heartache.
She said: "Having your heart broken is hard at the best of times, but being in the public eye has definitely made it harder for me.
"The point is, you don't want your ex to read how you're feeling - or vice versa.
"I've had my heart broken and it's the hardest thing. It isn't any less if you do the dumping. You start to doubt yourself, because you still miss that person.
"It's like a habit that's been taken away from you, and you feel lost."
