The Saturdays' Mollie King: I've never had a one-night stand or sex on the first date

The gorgeous Saturdays star, whose ex-boyfriends include David Gandy and Lawson singer Andy Brown, has men worldwide pining after her - but she isn't the type of girl to sleep with just anyone.

Mollie told Cosmopolitan: “I’ve never had a one-night stand or sex on the first date, and I don’t think I ever would.

"It’s important for a guy to know and understand me before he can even think about taking things to the next step.”

As the only member of The Saturdays without a boyfriend, many would think Mollie could get lonely - but she seems to be loving life as an independent woman.

She revealed: “I’m enjoying being single and I’m definitely not gagging to be in another relationship. When I go out, I’m not going out to find a man; I’m going out to dance the night away with my best friends.

“The positives [of being single] are huge. I’ve learnt a lot about myself - small things like learning to live by myself and take care of myself.

"I love that I don’t rely on anyone else or need to lean on anyone else; I can just do things on my own... Being single has definitely given me a new lease of life.”

Mollie was in a two-year relationship with Lawson's Andy before they split in early 2011, reportedly due to "work commitments".

She went on to date model David Gandy but the pair went their separate ways after 10 months and it wasn't long before Mollie was linked to Prince Harry.

The 25-year-old continued: "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. Everyone says, 'Give it time, you’ll feel better in the morning.' But you don’t. You feel like it’s never, ever going to heal - specially during the first few weeks.

"It isn’t any less if you do the dumping. For me it’s always been like, ‘Have I done the right thing? Have I made the right decision?’ 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.”

She added: “This is my first time being properly single and at first I had that shock of, ‘Oh my god, who do I call at night when I go to sleep? Who do I call if I get upset?’

"But I just needed to adapt to that person not being around. Being single has forced me to grow up and be more independent, and that’s something I’m really proud of.”

The full interview appears in the March issue of Cosmopolitan, on sale 31st January (also available in digital edition).
