She explained: "I’d come in for a photo shoot on my own and met a few of the pros getting lunch or whatever and he was the only one that I hadn't met yet. So it was a genuine surprise and it was so lovely, the energy was right from the off and I feel like he's gonna balance me out a little bit. I'm loud. And he's a bit more calm. So I like he's gonna like, you know, keep me keep me on the ground."

She also opened up about her former dance training, explaining: "I went to a theatre school when I was younger and I always laugh at this because everyone thinks theatre school means like you're a good dancer but my mum will tell you, I'm Nelly the elephant. But I think from being a singer, I've got that musicality in me so I hope it translates into my feet and the rest because I definitely I can hold a rhythm and I can sing and tune."

Molly and Carlos were incredible on Saturday night!

The star, who has been tipped as one to watch in the competition, added: "A lot of the advice has been you know just enjoy it. But I’m a little bit scared because I'm a bit of a perfectionist so if I'm if I'm struggling one week with one kind of dance, I'm gonna get in my head about it… I'm pretty good with critiques usually. I think like, no one's gonna say it for the sake of saying it. There's always a point behind it. It's always to make you improve."
