Molly Rainford won't be looking for love on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 21-year-old actress insisted she won't be following some of the contestants from previous years who have ended up romancing their dance partners, because the 'Nova Jones' star's parents don't want her to get "distracted" by men and she's happy to stay single.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: “I’m only 21, so I’m not looking for a relationship on 'Strictly'. That’s not in the picture right now. I want to focus on my career.

“My parents don’t want me to be distracted or worrying about boys just yet. I’m single and don’t plan on changing it.

“Being offered a massive show like 'Strictly' is life-changing. It was really out of the blue for me, I was so surprised to be asked.

“I couldn’t believe it when I got the call — everyone in my family loves 'Strictly'. The glitz and glamour is the most exciting part to me, I love the idea of all the costumes.

“I’m no stranger to wacky outfits with my job on CBBC, so I’m going to throw myself into it. I’m excited for people to see Molly perform rather than Nova.”

Molly was just 11 years old when she made it to the 'Britain's Got Talent' finals in 2012 and after impressing Simon Cowell, she admitted tough-talking 'Strictly' judge Craig Revel Horwood doesn't faze her.

She said: “I‘m hoping to charm the judges with my hard work. My plan is to just be myself.

“Craig Revel Horwood doesn’t scare me — I managed to get on the right side of Simon Cowell. Everyone talked about how scary he was, but he is a big softie deep down.”

And the CBBC star has a plan to set herself apart from the other contestants.

She said: “I want to be the first contestant to sing on stage while dancing my routine.

“That would be my ultimate dream, but I’ll need to get my stamina up for it.

"If I got to week nine or ten I could try to pull that out of the bag.”
