Who is Mollie King, how old is she and what's her background?

Mollie King is a singer and model from Wandsworth in London, best-known for being one fifth of The Saturdays. As a youngster Mollie was a skiing champion and a finalist in the Miss Guildford beauty pageant.

The 30-year-old began her rise to fame by auditioning for The X Factor in 2005 aged 18, where she clashed with Sharon Osbourne over her chosen outfit despite impressing with her vocal. She returned in 2007 as part of girl band Fallen Angelz, but they did not progress past the Bootcamp round.

Then in that same year Mollie auditioned to be part of girl band The Saturdays, alongside the likes of Frankie Sandford, who had been a member of S Club Juniors. As soon as they'd formed the group toured with Girls Aloud, and they eventually released four albums, selling five million of them.

Among their best-known songs are Ego, Issues and their cover of Just Can't Get Enough.
