BLISTERED Mollie King sports plasters on her heels ahead of rehearsals on Thursday.
The ex-Saturdays singer, 30, covered up her sore spots as she met dance pro AJ Pritchard in London to practise the American Smooth for this week’s show.
Mollie and 22-year-old AJ secured seventh place on the telly leaderboard last Saturday, racking up a score of 25 for their sensual tango.
However, Craig Revel Horwood was quick to slam the pair over an illegal lift during their routine.
Mollie previously slammed claims that the show was “fixed” in her favour suggesting she had a head start in the competition.
The star exclusively told The Sun Online last month: “People will assume I’ve had formal dance training but I haven’t.
“When I was in a ballet class aged three they said I danced like an elephant so I played football instead!”
