Mollie King took a break from her gruelling Strictly Come Dancing schedule, to pose for a shot which she uploaded to her Instagram account on Tuesday. She was wearing a striking faux fur jacket in a plethora of pink and tan shades, which is from French Connection’s current collection, and is available online now in all sizes, retailing at £175.

Mollie, 30, appeared to be wearing workout gear underneath her extravagant outerwear - showing off her shapely physique in leggings from ladies leisurewear retailer Sweaty Betty. The leggings are available from the women’s fitness store and are priced at £80. Posing on the black sofa at Elstree Studios in London, she also added black Nike trainers and a black cap, which fitted in with her casual attire. She is certainly taking a break from her sparkly, sequined costumes that she has become accustomed to during the show.

The ex-Saturday’s singer looked typically glamorous in the snap, despite the fact she was wearing gym gear and holding a coffee from Starbucks as she posed. It must be thirsty work dancing all day in preparation for the weekend show, which is currently showing on BBC1. Mollie is partnered with AJ Pritchard, and has been performing expertly well, scoring high with the judges on numerous occasions. One of her most memorable performances was her rendition of the salsa, which earned her and her partner 27 points.

The Strictly contestant looked relaxed, refreshed and incredibly happy in the snap; her flawless complexion was clear and fresh, and she appeared to be wearing little make-up. Her trademark blonde hair was smooth and straight, and peeped out from beneath her cap. We are sure she will be transformed into her regular sultry self on Saturday evening!
